Communicating design and research results, in a way an Agile development team can best leverage them, is critical to achieve your vision of the user experience. Our teammates have their own favorite methods for making sense of information, which we can adopt to bridge communications gaps. Join our talk to learn several techniques UX designers and researchers can use “speak the language” of business, development, and quality assurance (QA). Success (and failure) stories will illustrate how we have used our coworkers’ methods and vocabulary to engage teammates and deliver great experiences. We show how to make the key points stay with teammates by collaboratively translating them into a scope of work everyone can understand. Our examples cover tactically planning one sprint’s backlog, through a list of related capabilities for a product epic, to strategically planning a multi-year vision roadmap. You will walk away with processes, tips and tricks for better collaborating with Business, Dev and QA, ultimately making research and design insights relevant and actionable for everyone.
