Customer insight in an Agile environment


Working in an agile environment has completely changed the way we develop our services. Agile is all about creating fast iterations of products based on the feedback of real users. The importance of user understanding in this context cannot be over stressed. This presentation will discuss how we have begun to develop and deploy our research in an agile environment and will provide you with some practical examples of methodologies that could be applied in your own business to gather robust customer insight quickly and cost-effectively.
