.. Avoiding Pitfalls in an Iterative Model (by Leisa Reichelt)
There is a commonly held belief that Agile Methods and User Centred Design do not play nicely together. On the contrary, Agile and UCD have much to offer each other. Each can learn and benefit from the other, and work together as a robust design and development methodology.
