July Book Club – Lean UX

The July Book Club is Lean UX, by Jeff Gothelf and Josh Seiden.

Inspired by lean and agile development theories, Lean UX lets you focus on the actual experience being designed, rather than deliverables. This book shows you how to collaborate closely with other members of the product team, and gather feedback early and often. You’ll learn how to drive the design in short, iterative cycles to assess what works best for the business and the user.
