This was a question brought up in a slack channel I belong to and I thought it might make for good discussion over here too.
“Does anyone have any advice on how to incorporate usability testing into an agile project?”
"I was just watching a UX presentation that was saying testing should be a part of every sprint, otherwise if you only do major acceptance testing at the end you are essentially back to a waterfall methodology and it’s often too late to incorporate any learnings back into the product design. I understand there are various levels of testing (some are better suited for the last stages perhaps) but continual review and testing by users is, according to this one expert, an essential part of every sprint. What do you think? As someone learning UX principles, I found it very interesting "UX in an Agile Process • Janne Jul Jensen"
