Bridging the Gap Between Scrum & Design Practices

Design activities rarely seem to fit into “Sprints”. And it often feels appropriate to perform design work ahead of development. As a result, many teams struggle to incorporate all team members in the feedback loops that lead to high-quality design. This struggle is real, but solving this problem is worth the effort.

Development risks are mitigated by working in small, reversible steps — like the Sprint cadence. Scrum encourages teams to produce slices of new functionality each Sprint — design, development, testing, and delivery seem to occur simultaneously. As a result, many teams struggle to incorporate design activities that span multiple Sprints. This struggle is real, but solving this problem helps ensure the team is both building the right thing and the building the thing right.

The Professional Scrum with User Experience (PSU) course is a hands-on exploration of modern UX practices with Scrum. Learn UX techniques that fit beautifully with Scrum and practice these techniques with cross-functional teams in class.

Who Should Attend?

PSU is for anyone attempting to integrate the UX specialty with incremental & iterative development of product.
