Agile Usability

Das hier ist ein kurzer, aber wirklich lesenswerter Blog-Post: Usability: Agile usability for rapid development.

So what is an ‘Agile’ approach? At a high level, it involves a quick succession of usability test iterations with few participants. Between test iterations, debriefs between user experience and developers help to ensure that any important usability issues raised during the sessions are not overlooked. Where applicable, findings from one product could be applied to another product, and the stakeholders and researchers can agree that preemptively changing the product would eliminate common errors that were sure to arise.

Das Thema Agile und der Zusammenhang oder die Beziehung zu User Experience Prozessen, ist ja zur Zeit sehr angesagt... und auch wirklich sehr spannend.
