Scrum meets UX

In Scrum, UX Design is not intended to be an independent and necessary discipline. In the best-case, UX designers should work together with the software engineers, in the worst-case software engineers treat UX design as a side job. In practice, both approaches often lead to potentially powerful software which is later experienced as frustrating by the later user. Scrum does not answer the question of how to integrate user-centric design into agile software development. In "Scrum meets UX" you will learn how to successfully unite these two disciplines.
