Combine Scrum and UX!
You're a UX expert who has noticed the collaboration with the Scrum Team doesn't always run smoothly. Or, maybe you're a Product Owner who wants to learn how to use UX and maximize the value of your product. Our PSU training provides you with the knowledge and skills to bridge the gap between a UX mindset and the Scrum Framework.
The PSU training is perfect for
The PSU training is perfect for anyone who works in or with a Product Team and wants to offer the best user experience. Previous participants include UX experts, Product Owners and Scrum Masters. It is important that you have at least 1 year of experience with Scrum and a passion for users and their experience with your product.
What will you learn during the Professional with User Experience (PSU) training?
We start with an exploration of Scrum and UX: what similarities exist between the UX mindset and how a Scrum Member works? We use real-life examples to identify bottlenecks in collaboration and discuss them with each other. After that, it's time to dive a little deeper. How can UX-ers work more effectively by using Scrum principles? And how can the Scrum Team integrate UX into product development? We discover how UX and Scrum can team up in a Sprint and you will learn how to include UX in the Product Backlog. At the end of the training, the gap between Scrum and UX is bridged and you are able to bring together the best of both worlds. The result? The best product!
