Using Pivotal Tracker for UX stories?

Hi all,

Do any of you use Pivotal Tracker to manage stories for design work? If so, how do you organize your projects?

I found the following links, but I was curious so learn about other approaches.

Lean UX talk

 

This month we’re discussing Lean UX, the latest technique to get UX teams and Agile teams working together effectively. Inspired by Agile development, Lean adopts the idea that designs are hypotheses that need to be validated, and that creating a shared understanding among development teams and stakeholders is the primary goal of development planning activity.

Lean UX Discussion/User group

We're interested in starting a Lean UX discussion/user group in Portland.  I've been following Jeff Gothelf, and saw him at UXImmersion.  Also hosted a round table discussion at WebVisions, and there seems to be a lot of interest in the topic of Lean UX.  I think there is a lot of merit to the underlying ideas of Lean, and many obstacles to implementing them.  Would anyone be interested in participating in a group that met once/month?  How about just a single meeting?  Please let me know on this thread.

How do you incorporate user testing into Agile Mobile Design?

I recently had dinner with one of my heroes and fellow Rosenfeld Media workshop leaders, Steve Krug. We had a long conversation about how to make mobile usability testing work for Agile mobile design projects. 

The free webinar (link below) is the result.

Have you tried my PostIt notes methodology, and if so, what do you think? What techniques do you yourself use for Agile usability testing and RITE?

Is the sketching workshop still on for tonight at Isite?

I've been burned by a couple of under-planned events that evaporated here in PDX, so I'd like to confirm what Francis mentioned a couple of days ago on Twitter:

https://twitter.com/#!/fstorr/status/191579522016096259

Is this sketching workshop still on?  (I don't see anything mentioned in the IxDAPDX twitter feed or iSiteDesign's either, and nothing in this discussion group, so I'm wondering if this is more a rumour than a Real Thing.)

Thanks all!

Mike

Slides and Q&A notes from the Digital Dialogues talk on Feb 29

Thanks to all for coming out to the AIGA Digital Dialogues talk with @gradybritton and @knuckleheadspdx on the build of the Choicelunch iPhone app. The discussion was particularly great, especially re: prototyping for the focus group and adopting a lean ux workflow, so I thought I'd post some of the highlights.

View the Slideshare deck and Q&A notes.
