“Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software”. If you recognized this principle from the Agile Manifesto, kudos to you! But did you know that the Agile Manifesto was written 20 years ago? What does it mean to be Agile in 2020?

This panel of UX leaders will discuss the unique attributes of Agile UX, key differences from a more traditional approach, how they evolved Agile UX practices in various organizations and some of the challenges to practicing Agile UX. Finally. They will also share recommendation for those who want to enhance their agile way of working.

Whether you are a deep agilist or agile-curious, join the conversation! There will be actionable take-aways for everyone, whether you work in a start-up, corporate or non-profit environments. Audience questions, friendly debate and banter will be encouraged!
