The Lean UX Manifesto: Principle-Driven Design
Advertisement My colleague Ajay and I have been working at incorporating lean UX at the enterprise level for over two years. In studying it, I find that there’s a temptation to lay down rules, and if the rules aren’t followed… well, then, you can’t call it lean UX. At the end of the day, though, some lean UX is better than none. If you were told to finish off the following sentence, how would you do it? “You’re not practicing lean UX if…” I asked that very same question on Twitter, LinkedIn and email to some lean UX thinkers1 out there. Let me give you a real-world example. The value of co-location is obvious. “Nothing is more effective than walking over to a colleague, showing some work, discussing, sketching, exchanging ideas, understanding facial expressions and body language, and reaching a resolution on a thorny topic.” I couldn’t agree more, but in one of my projects, it’s not a reality. From Ha Phan7: From Jeff Gothelf8: From Melissa Hui9: The Lean UX Manifesto I didn’t do it alone.
