Embedded Research, Design Sprints, and Failing Fast!

March 14th, 2015 at UX Boston

The Benefits of Failing Fast & Quick
Trial & error is a commonly used phrase, but perhaps it's used half-heartedly. We always hear praises for the success behind a 'trial' but rarely do we hear about the 'errors'. Let's talk error, failure, and ask 'how could this fail?' together – early and often. From emails to feature work, this tech talk will combine an in depth look at how software development can apply the "fail fast" mantra along with a quick workshop where everyone will experience the benefit of conducting a project pre-mortem. 

"Enjoyed all the talks, especially appreciated Stacey's concept of moving ideas that don't work for one project from the trash can to the bookcase."
