Porto Community Meetup May 2017

Agile Connect

Welcome to the Agile Connect Community!

Here is the 14th Porto Community Meetup!

Margarida Carvalho

Lean UX is a mindset

Lean UX takes the best processes and tools from the traditional UX process, adapts and combines them in order to make them fit and have place in fast paced environments. Lean UX is deeply collaborative involving small, dedicated, cross-functional teams together in shared space, to encourage better communication and shared understanding of the problem to be solved. Aims at reducing waste, and with that ends all processes and blockers that do not lead to the ultimate goal — a good working product! Lean UX bases its process in creating quickly, testing and measuring what works, learn from it and adjust. As Jeff Gothelf said “Lean UX is, at its core, a mindset”.

Margarida Carvalho is an UX Specialist fascinated with the human mind and behaviour, and a stronger believer in user-centered solutions that solve user needs and meet business goals.

Margarida started her career as a graphic designer but soon changed to digital design and has been building her path in the area of UX since in different work environments: startups, non-profit organisations, schools, corporate world. Margarida is a very curious person: she always tries her best to learn new things about people and technology every day.
