Lean UX is focused on the experience under design and is less focused on deliverables than traditional UX. It requires a greater level of collaboration with the entire team. The core objective is to focus on obtaining feedback as early as possible so that it can be used to make quick decisions. The nature of Agile development is to work in rapid, iterative cycles and Lean UX mimics these cycles to ensure that data generated can be used in each iteration.

Lean UX Process

Vision, framing, and outcomes

Start with assumptions instead of requirements. Create and test hypotheses:

Collaborative design


MVP’s & Experiments

Feedback and research

Basically, the whole idea behind Lean UX is to be as efficient as possible. The goal is to reduce the amount of time that comes with writing the traditional UX documents and spending long hours analyzing different cases in a meeting. Instead, the team focuses on regular interactions with real customers through UX interviews and early testing.

    My colleague Ajay and I have been working at incorporating lean UX at the enterprise level for over two years. In studying it, I find that there’s a temptation to lay down rules, and if the rules aren’t followed... well, then, you can’t call it lean UX. At the end of the day, though, some lean UX is better than none.
