Agile Meets Design Thinking | Online Course Support

Every situation is different, but in the agile world, eight months is a relatively long time to wait for working software to have contact with real users. Most likely, the company should have been more iterative, releasing sooner, designing observations where they can determine if they’re delivering something that’s valuable to the user, and then being responsive to change.
