Design Thinking in Agile

Some of the principles behind the Agile Manifesto include:

  • Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software.
  • Welcome changing requirements, even late in development. Agile processes harness change for the customer’s competitive advantage.
  • Business people and developers must work together daily throughout the project.
  • Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done.
  • The most efficient and effective method of conveying information to and within a development team is face-to-face conversation.
  • Working software is the primary measure of progress.
  • Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances agility.
  • Simplicity–the art of maximizing the amount of work not done–is essential.
  • The best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams.

In this webinar, Jack highlights how design thinking can effectively fit in agile, scrum and SAFe and live up to the principles of the agile manifesto.
Learning Objectives:

  • The basic flow of design thinking
  • Various models incorporating design thinking into agile, scrum, and SAFe
