Lean Methods for the UX Team of One

You’ll learn to…

  • Self-document. As you’re working, you’re also creating the pieces that you need for the deliverable. Nothing is created that can’t be shared and used.
  • Discourage time wasted on perfectionistic polishing of deliverables. Lowest fidelity necessary.
  • Understand where 20% of the work will bring 80% of the benefit. Designed to help you prioritize.
  • Understand that lean methods are those that do one thing at a time and do it well—answer a question, communicate a concept, establish a next step. Bite sized and with a purpose.
