UX in Scrum

I’m not an expert in Scrum methodology, but after working and collaborating for 3 years as part of a Scrum team, here are some ways we’ve a got to introduce User Experience practices into agile development:

  • Getting User Stories talk about real people and needs (Personas)
  • Getting Epics talk about user scenarios
  • Product backlog grooming on Design Studio’s sessions
  • One sprint ahead for High-fidelity designs (better option maybe would be a Design spike)
  • Usability expert consultancy during the sprint
  • Cognitive walkthrough during review sessions
