UX BURNER

HOW TO CONSTANTLY DESIGN BETTER PRODUCTS, FASTER WITH SCRUM TEAMS

 

Do you have limited resources but an urge to build great products with less waste? Are you still following the old waterfall approach to product development by seperating design and development processes. Do you find difficult to integrate UX design and Scrum but unsure about the right recipe to execute in Scrum? 

 

Say hello to ''UX BURNER’'. A holistic framework that gives product teams a systematic way to unify UX design and Scrum by fostering creativity, collaboration, shared understanding. UX burner helps to focus the energy in a right direction with a continuous cycle of experiments that include problem analysis; ideating on concepts; learning and iterating and the best part is that you don’t have to separate design from development. Stop your waterfallish product development by doing lengthy upfront design work followed by the development work. Stay agile and kick out the mess in your product development process with UX BURNER.

 

We hate wasting time to teach just theories. So in this workshop, all the participants will have a hands-on experience of the process and also get a strong understanding of activities included in the process. Participants will be able to apply them right away in their projects.
