About this training

In this 16 hours class students will leverage an ongoing case study as a way of applying techniques learned throughout the class and preparing to take what they learn back to their workplace.  This course is designed for Product Owners and Scrum Masters to better incorporate design, research and learning into their Scrum process.

Lean UX techniques focus the team toward customer-centric design and discovery. Scrum focuses the team toward rapid delivery and customer feedback. By bringing together Lean UX and Scrum, teams learn how to drive the design together with delivery, in short, iterative cycles to assess what works best for the business and the user.

Leveraging Lean UX techniques, the course takes core design and research activities, illustrating how they come together with development and delivery. Attendees explore how these activities fit into a dual-track agile process (Design and Development) where cross-functional teams can work together to explore, experiment and deliver value-based outcomes.

This course was created together with Jeff Gothelf and Joshua Seiden, the authors of the book Lean UX, leveraging their expertise and knowledge. The goal of working together is to help students learn the truth about many of the myths that exist when it comes to bringing together design and development activities and how to overcome the challenges that come with this integrated team approach.

There are no set prerequisites to attend the course. However, a good understanding of Scrum and Agile fundamentals is helpful.

Who is this training for

  • Scrum Masters and Product Owners

They will learn how to integrate the UX speciality with what they already know about the power of self-organizing cross-functional teams. This will enable them to help Developers learn about the customer, plan learning/discovery/design work, and still deliver a "Done" increment each Sprint.

In addition, Scrum Masters will learn how to incorporate product discovery techniques into Sprints and balance the product discovery work with the product delivery work. Product Owners will learn product discovery techniques that User Experience Designers use to better understand users' needs.

  • UX Professionals struggling to integrate on a Scrum Team will learn how to work more effectively inside Scrum, managing work in Sprints and visualizing it in the Product Backlog.
  • People who have learned about Lean UX and want to learn how to integrate those concepts into Professional Scrum working together in a unified Scrum Team.

This was my third Meirik course
This was my third Meirik course, and they have all been of the utmost quality. The Meirik trainers are highly knowledgeable and very skilled at delivery, maintaining a high level of energy and participation. The use of break-out rooms and virtual whiteboards delivered a learning environment that in some ways surpassed physical training. Highly recommended.

Meirik - always the best experience
Learning with Meirik trainers is always the best experience. They, besides their knowledge, know how to find the best pace to gain the information. They can "feel" what will be the best way to conduct the training. For sure! I'll back to the Meirik for more.
