<p>This month in <em>Ask UXmatters</em>, our expert panel discusses whether UX designers still receive frequent requests for agile, or whether they’re now receiving more requests for spiral, Lean, or DevOps. Our panelists also explore whether the rise of these other methodologies has affected the UX designs they create.</p>

The panel then considers the impact of whether an organization implements agile across the entire company or only on individual teams. The root motivation for requesting agile, spiral, Lean, or DevOps is also important: why is the organization asking for a particular methodology? Is it really the methodology that the company wants or certain attributes of the resulting designs. Or maybe they request the methodology with the expectation that it would reduce the time or financial investment that would be necessary. <a href="https://www.uxmatters.com/mt/archives/2021/05/citizen-developers-as-innovators.php" class="read_more_link">Read More</a></p>
