So, we are constantly an alyzing the data and refining the framework. In our research we found that advanced UI specifications therefore have to be made up of interconnected artefacts that have distinct levels of abstraction.
Refined artifacts are then captured in appropriate models stored in a model repository. Social Integration in Agile User Experience: Also, some new aspects emerged from the analysis of the observations and inter- views.
But it depends on the problem. The Glossary of Human Computer Interaction The work of interest during our observations and in terviews was all th e activi- ties, tools, and artifacts used from requirements elicita- tion to the product evaluation. Sometimes even the daily meetings block the UX member, because since they are working in many projects, they have a lot of meetings to attend.
Conclusions The theory on which we based this work—the results from a Systematic Literature Review—led us to a frame- work for integrating UX and Agile development.
The way these two perspectives are being combined in practice is still not well understood. Show Context Citation Context The Project Due to confidentiality constraints, we cannot provide much information about the projects.
Twenty HCI experts were interviewed for the Validation and improvement of this initial set. Initial memos were extracted by the researcher from the field notes produced during the observations and from the interviews performed with members of the teams.
However, as already mentioned, sometimes UX members block the Development Team because they are working on other projects. Usability engineering has made its way into the software mainstream and has caught the attention of software engineers and researchers worldwide due to rapidly growing and volatile internet software industry, despite their different perspectives on creating software both have a major role in making good software.
Regarding observations, due to the characteristics of invoking the least amount of interference in the work environment and the least expensive method to imple- ment and, most importantly, because the company did not permit video or audio recording of the meetings, we choose to manually record our observations of the meet- ings described below.
From Theory to Practice It is worthwhile to mention that despite we observed one team and one UX Designer, as presented in Table 1, we interviewed three UX Designers of the company. Product Owner, Scrum Master and Team.
Sy  reports experiences on inte- grating UX Design and Agile development, suggesting adaptations of the UCD User-Centered Design in terms of tasks granularity, reporting and timing. We conducted interviews with eleven practitioners from three local software development companies to gain preliminary evidence of the practicality of the approach.
As we could notice in the literature, Mcinerney and Maurer  reported results of interviews with UX De- signers, just mentioning the necessity of adding UX De- sign into Agile development without a specific proposal.
This is a way of communicating to persuade . With- out any research or design up front, he does not know what to design afterwards. This continuous shortening of development lifecycles is a great challenge to both project management and the applied methods and tools.
For our interviews, we interviewed three members of the UX group that work in different projects and one project manager. In general, the Market- ing Team knows what they say they need, not what they really need.
The Marketing Team performs some studies, e. Usability focuses on how the end users will work with the software and agile development focuses on how the software should be developed. We performed a thematic analysis of the data from the observations and interviews in order to identify patterns or themes.The first two models integrate agile principles and usability engineering, while Raza et al.
developed a UCMM for open source development. Especially the research integrating UE and agile practices indicates a need for customizing such models to current software development trends. O.

Integrating Usability Engineering and Agile Software Development: A Literature Review. We used existing studies on the integration of user experience design and agile methods as a basis to develop a framework for integrating UX and Agile.
We performed a field study in an ongoing project of a medium-sized company in order to check if the proposed framework fits in the real world, and how some aspects of the integration of UX and Agile work in a real project.
Agile Usability Engineering is a concept to describe a combination of methods and practices of agile development and usability engineering. Therefore, this entry commences with a brief note on agile methods. In recent years, agile methods for software and web engineering have reached widespread acceptance in the community.Download
