Lean UX: Getting Out Of The Deliverables Business


Website user experience design for has traditionally been a deliverables-based practice. Wireframes, site maps, content inventories, user flows, taxonomies and mockups all form the foundational ‘Spec Doc’ for development.

This process has forced creative UX designers into the deliverables business where they are measured for the depth and breadth of their deliverables instead of the quality of the experiences they design for. When combined with waterfall development methodologies, these UX deliverables end up consuming an enormous amount of time. often the product derails  a tremendous amount of waste. Waste is defined as anything that is ultimately not used in the development of the working product.

Lean UX is the evolution of UX design.

Lean UX is the practice of bringing the true nature of our work to light faster, with less emphasis on deliverables and greater focus on the actual experience being designed.

Come learn how to:

  • Take the best of the designer’s tool kit
  • Work in a deeply collaborative and cross-functional way
  • Change the way you talk about design
  • Rapidly experiment, validate and adjust
  • Maintain the vision

Let’s become experts at delivering great results through these experiences and forgo the hefty spec documents.
