Agile and UX are not natural bedfellows. Agile is fast-paced, focused on micro-processes and developer-driven. UX, on the other hand can be more time consuming, considers the big picture (i.e. what are users’ goals and can they achieve them) and is externally driven by users.

As we look toward 2021 and, hopefully, the opportunities that await us there, we share some of the ways you could incorporate user insights into your plans.
