Three Short Videos About Usability and Agile Development

One year ago, at an event titled the “7-Minute Soapbox on User Experience Design“, three presentations touched upon the integration of usability/UCD with agile development.

A word of warning: the 7-minute duration was strictly enforced at this event, so these videos may feel more like previews than feature-length films. But it makes for easy watching! Here’s a brief summary of each:

* User-Centered Design and Agile Development at NCR
How a 2-person usability team at NCR is working to better support both design and testing activities across 30 agile projects.

* Tips for Integrating User Experience and Agile Development
Challenges, gaps, and words of wisdom for bringing these two worlds together.

* An Agile Alternative to the Ponderous Usability Test
Argues that usability testing is too slow even outside agile development and introduces the “design checkpoint” as complementary activity.
