The Pretotyping Manifesto - Pretotyping

The Pretotyping Manifesto - Pretotyping | UXploration | Scoop.it

* The pretotyping manifesto is a living artifact, it will change and evolve as we put its principles into practice.  The manifesto was inspired by a combination of the Agile Manifesto and the Unleash the Innovators Manifesto that Alberto Savoia developed at Google in 2009.

Although this article will talk mostly about the relationship between UX leaders and clients, you can also identify and apply these PO attributes when working as a freelancer, consultant, or as part of a larger team. The objective is not to generalize—the same person can have some, all, or none of the following characteristics. What’s important is to observe and learn from them.

User Experience Design in Product Ownership (プロダクト・オーナーシップにおけるユーザエクスペリエンス・デザイン) | UXploration | Scoop.it
デザイン思考のフレームワークに従い、ユーザ中心設計の各種技法をミニマムに取り入れ、スクラムを組みながら開発の効率性を実現し、リーン・スタートアップに見習った MVP(最小限持続可能性)を特定後、イテレーションを繰り返しながら評価と改善を促しリリースする。これが正に Jeff Patton 氏が提唱する理想のアジャイル開発(もはや開発ではないかもしれません)であり、私個人も昇華させていきたい「Agile Experience Design」だと思います。

Assessing Product Opportunities

I consider this “Product Opportunity Assessment,” as I prefer to call it, an extremely important responsibility of the product manager. The purpose of a good product opportunity assessment is either to a) prevent the company from wasting time and money on poor opportunities; or b) for those that are good opportunities, to understand what will be required to succeed.

Cynthia Tait's curator insight, May 17, 2013 11:13 PM

Agile design - a new buzzy phrase in software development - could it have value in the less fast paced world of curriculum theory and the paradoxically opposite 'real' world of 'lived and living' curriculum....worth a read chaps and ladies.

PowerStory's curator insight, May 19, 2013 2:23 PM

A great article providing practical advice on how to apply agile principles to how you define requirements and ui design.  Worth the read.

Great debate in the comments regarding the value of product management.

 

Also relevant to the question of how product excellence is defined based on which criteria - a crappy product that makes a lot of money and customers hate, but still buy since the alternatives are worse options, or a beautifully designed product that works excellent and has not market share because of price...

Looks Good Works Well: Lean UX & Agile Development. Rationalizing the Two Methodologies | UXploration | Scoop.it

Lean UX & Agile work together well. And while they share lots of common principles they are distinct work streams. Lean UX & Agile aren't the whole picture on how to create great products. You also need to be able to gather customer insights, define customer problems, refine solution concepts, deliver & test solutions and then rinse & repeat these steps. Lean UX is one tool to help us refine & test solution concepts. Agile helps us deliver solutions. A/B testing helps us test what we deliver. Customer driven innovation (pioneered at Intuit) defines a broader methodology that Lean & Agile fit nicely inside of.

User Requirements in the 21st Century

Our development processes need to be aligned with the needs of the 21st century in light of the experience of the past decade. Interactive solutions will be used by an increasingly large and diverse population; usability and user experience cannot remain as optional or occasionally-invoked resources on the periphery of development teams.
