Agile development processes and User Centred Design (UCD) integration have been gaining increased interest, in part due to the complementarity of the techniques, the benefits each can apply to the other, and the challenges associated with their combination. This paper describes a Systematic Literature Review (SLR) that was conducted on Agile and UCD(More)
As agile is maturing and becoming more widely adopted, it is important that researchers are aware of the challenges faced by practitioners and organisations. We undertook a thematic analysis of 193 agile challenges collected at a series of agile conferences and events during 2013 and 2014. Participants were mainly practitioners and business representatives(More)
The aim of this paper is to explore and evaluate the role that can be played by Usability Maturity Models (UMMs) in integrating agile processes and User Centred Design (UCD). UMMs can be utilised in Agile projects as a diagnostic tool to assess the extent to which UCD is systematically and consistently implemented and the extent of effective implementation(More)
This paper discusses an empirical study that identified challenges exhibited by industrial practitioners in integrating Agile development processes and User Centred Design (UCD). The study also identified practices utilised in order to achieve the integration. Fourteen in-depth, one-to-one interviews were conducted with 14 participants from 11 companies of(More)

Agile and user centered design integration (AUCDI) is of significant interest to researchers who want to achieve synergy and eliminate limitations of each. Currently, there are no clear principles or guidelines for practitioners to achieve successful integration. In addition, substantial differences exist between agile and UCD approaches which pose(More)

The complexity of design and implementation of Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS) is caused by the lack of a clear road map or implementation methodology. This has led us to investigate the role of patterns in ITS implementation in order to provide software developers with solutions to recurring ITS design problems. In this research work, we highlight the(More)
The aim of this paper is to report the patterns that emerged as a result of conducting two studies: first, a Systematic Literature Review (SLR) that investigated Agile and User Centred Design Integration (AUCDI) challenges, strategies and success factors and included a total of 71 AUCDI experience reports, lessons learned, and success and failure AUCDI case(More)
