Show Me the MVP! The Digital PM and Lean UX perspective in Product Development
October 13th | 10:00 AM
Some of the most difficult roles to integrate in Agile and Lean development are project managers and user experience (UX).

She will clarify how project managers and user experience professionals can embrace and prosper in this new work environment by using real world examples from some of the large digital retailers in the United States.
