Course Overview

In this two day class* students will leverage an ongoing case study as a way of applying techniques learned throughout the class and preparing to take what they learn back to their workplace.  This course is designed for Product Owners and Scrum Masters to enable them to better incorporate design, research and learning into their Scrum process. 

Lean UX techniques focus the team toward customer-centric design and discovery. Scrum focuses the team toward rapid delivery and customer feedback. By bringing together Lean UX and Scrum, teams learn how to drive the design together with delivery in short, iterative cycles to assess what works best for the business and the user.

Leveraging Lean UX techniques, the course takes core design and research activities, illustrating how they come together with development and delivery. Attendees explore how these activities fit into a dual-track agile process (Design and Development) where cross-functional teams can work together to explore, experiment and deliver value-based outcomes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Your courseware is included in the price of the course, however you will need to download the material from the PMI website.  Once you have purchased the course, Tactec will order the courseware for you and you will receive an email from PMI with your access code.  Please note that the access code will expire in 30 days and can only be used once.

Download your courseware from the PMI website.  Read Section 1 of the “Choose Your WoW!” book, which will take approximately one hour.  Or you may prefer to watch the video overview of DA by Mark Lines, which will take about 30 minutes. 

Please note that this course is conducted via Zoom and we will be using a miro board for whiteboard exercises during the course.  If you are not already familiar with these tools, please watch these videos to learn the basics of Zoom and miro so you will be ready to fully participate in the course.


We would like you to feel comfortable and be engaged in the learning process.  Students are encouraged to post their questions on the Parking Lot in the miro board and those questions will be answered during the course.  We try to take a five minute break every hour so that you can stretch your legs, grab a beverage, and get a quick snack.  Then we get right back to the course, since we have a lot of material to cover.  We usually take a 20 or 30 minute break for lunch.

In a nutshell, Lean is based on systems thinking, whereas Agile is not based on systems thinking.  Both methods aim to provide clients with a high-quality product rapidly, one iteration (or sprint) at a time.  Many who aim to practice either Lean or Agile methods do not have a clear understanding of the differences between the goals and principles of Lean vs. Agile.  A failure to understand the principles behind the methodology can lead to shallow implementations, which means the ideal outcome will not be achieved.  Teams that clearly understand both Agile and Lean will be more successful, and can even hybridize their approach to enjoy the benefits of both methodologies.
