Centigrade UX Academy training
Scrum meets UXIn 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.
What to expect
In our training, you will gain a lot of theoretical and applied knowledge about how to combine Scrum, UX and user-centered design. Experience in three intensive sprints how your interdisciplinary way of a stepwise working process becomes more efficient and effective.
