Sometimes all you need is Waterfall Agility

  1. The Agile Product Development Process
  • One Time: Interview Staff → Generate Business Requirements → Create Job Stories & Narratives (Functional Requirements)
  • The Loop: Interview Customer → Modify Job Stories & Narratives → Design Interactive Wireframes (UX)
  • Single Shot Attempt: Design UI → Deliver Product

The Agile Customer Feedback Meeting

  1. They rarely understand the context of the meeting (nor the meaning of Wireframes)
  2. They weren’t the people who gave you the first set of Business Requirements
  3. They rarely receive & read the Agile Customer Feedback Agenda you shared in advance
  4. It’s hard to guess whether they like to see a guy in a suit or jeans & t-shirt (so I usually dress to impress)
  1. The Project Management Framework (what is Agile)
  2. Who we are, who they are, what we’re doing here today, and what we hope to get out of this workshop
  3. How we design our products (iPhone vs Android)
  4. Nomenclature
    Business Requirements (BRs): what they are & why they should care
    User Journeys: what they are & why they should really care
    Wireframes: why everything looks so ugly
    (customer) Business Owner Priorities vs (our) User Journey Priorities aka In which sequence we choose to build
  5. Updated Wireframes based on the previous Sprint feedback
  6. Feedback on Wireframes (where we ask the customer to look beyond the squiggly lines & green backgrounds)
  7. Next Sprint: BRs, Updated Wireframes, & Stakeholders involved
Sample approved wireframe that fulfilled 8 Business Requirements
