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 Any resources on user interface testing?
Hi. Are you talking about usability testing (finding problems by getting real users to interact with the UI), automated UI testing (using tools like Selenium or Window Licker to write programs to see whether the UI does what it should do), or some kind of exploratory testing (when you sit and interact with the system and try and find problems.)?

comment How do you track new feature/product adoption?
@Kyle With agile teams look to the stories that you're implementing. Each story should be delivering business value. Each of those stories should have acceptance criteria. Ask your business owner what they would consider success/failure for that bit of business value. You might also find googling around "Customer Development" and "Lean Startup" gets you some useful ideas.
