UX vs. AGILE : How to Integrate the Best out of both Worlds


 UX and Agile approaches involve their own special set of techniques for creating products and experiences, but they do overlap in one key area– creating products that delight and bring value to users.

Unfortunately, trying to accommodate for both approaches results in sometimes unhealthy competition for the key resource of Time - as well as frustration mainly due to common misunderstandings of both practices.

This workshop is aimed at practitioners and leaders in team environments- whether you are a UXers, programmer or project manager, you will learn just how to find the ‘best blend’ of the two approaches, no matter the constraints or type of product you are trying to create.

The session will cover:

· A little bit of theory - Introduction to UX and Agile

· Case study of one approach used to rapidly prototype a new mobile application for a Hong Kong company

· Hands-on: building a rapid prototype in groups (learning how to collaborate with a cross-functional team)

· Different ways of integrating UX and Agile ways of working.

This XTRAM workshop will be taught by Daryl Chan and colleagues from why innovation!, a consulting firm that coaches teams and organisations in successfully delivering products in the digital world.

XTRAM stands for Xperience Talent Ramp Up Program. In the past few months, we’ve noticed a market gap between companies demanding for UX Designers / Design Thinkers and the supply of talents available locally. Corporates have been hiring massively and Startups are facing bottleneck in growth for the lack of experienced UX talents here in Hong Kong.


To address this industry need, we are inviting experienced Design Practitioners in the UX/Design Thinking industry to become instructors to share their knowledge, insiders tips and tricks of how to become a professional designer, how to manage teams, how to negotiate with Tech/Biz people, how to advance your career and train up the next generation of designers.


We will focus on soft skills and mentorship that can only be acquired through working experience to fill the gap of what the market currently offers. Come ask the Design gurus of what you can’t learn in school.

We believe that the human condition is increasingly challenged by poor experiences. IxDA intends to improve the human condition by advancing the discipline of Interaction Design. To do this, we foster a community of people that choose to come together to support this intention. IxDA relies on individual initiative, contribution, sharing and self-organization as the primary means for us to achieve our goals.

IxDA is a novel kind of “un-organization” in that there is no cost for membership. IxDA relies on its passionate members to help serve the needs of the international Interaction Design community. With more than 80,000 members and over 170 local groups around the world, the IxDA network actively focuses on interaction design issues for the practitioner, no matter their level of experience.
