Because we were doing very well, right? We had a complete workflow set-up. We had this great list of deliverables. This old play-an-department thing was absolutely brilliant for the UX discipline. Everybody seemed to be happy with us. Well. We thought. Because I actually think that our old UX design workflow was one of the MAIN reasons we switched from waterfall to an agile process. A lot of our "deliverables", whether they were wireframes, flows or specs, implied that we could grasp the whole product in advance. The results gave security, to our clients, sales persons, developers and others. In this presentation I dive deeper in the background and our lessons learned so far.
