The best companion to the new edition of Lean UX

We've just finished working on the third edition of Lean UX—and we think it's the best version of the book yet! This class is design to be the best companion to the book that you can get.

If you've ever struggled to do user experience design in an agile world, then this course is for you. In a series of short, easy to follow videos, Jeff and Josh describe the key methods behind Lean UX. Whether you choose to use all the methods, or just to pick and choose a few that make sense, Lean UX is the best way to combine design, product management, and product discovery in an agile environment.
