Adrian is passionate about building effective teams and great products. He co-founded Quietstars to help companies do that using Lean, Agile and UX practices.

You'll find him working with startup and product development teams — doing everything from coaching & teaching to hands on UX & dev work. With more than 15 years experience working with startups, established businesses and agencies Adrian is an active member of the Agile and Lean UX communities. He's also a mentor for Lean Startup Machine and speakup.io.

You'll often find him ranting in a corner of the bar about how agile, business and user experience folk need to play nice together. Be kind and buy him whisky.

comment Can UX without research really be called UX?
I'd actually disagree with that moderately ;-) When working with agile teams I'd much rather involve them with the research work, rather than try and do it all before hand. Good agile teams work incrementally. UX research folk work incrementally. Having both work together is stupidly effective in my experience.
