Abstract Agile development is being adopted by many leading software companies, such as those represented by this panel. Though many instructional resources exist to guide companies through a change to Agile Development, there are few resources available on the subject of Agile development and User Centered Design (UCD). As a result, user experience practitioners have had to develop their own tactics and strategies for maintaining sound UCD practices within their organizations when moving to Agile.
