How to identify natural client touch-points throughout the software process

With agile development methods and the move towards cross-functional, autonomous, self-organizing teams, how do we ensure that the customer’s perspective is not getting lost along the way in the software development and user-design process?

UX Designer Kate Valdes joins XBSoft for the hour-long webinar The Intersection of Agile Product and User-Centered Design Methodologies, exploring ways to effectively identify client touch-points throughout the software product design process.
