Design for agile

Improving the role of designers in agile software development leads to healthier and more impactful teams. Our workbook can help you achieve this.

Why agile needs design?

On paper, customer-centric design and agile software development are a perfect match: agile teams thrive on creating customer and business value, and designers offer concrete methods for understanding customers and facilitating change.

But even though dozens of frameworks and methodologies have been created to organize teamwork and streamline processes, the reality is far from a honeymoon. Teams are constantly facing the same challenges and people feel things could be better.
