I’m working in an agile software development environment. We are currently planning on implementing three big new features within our existing enterprise software. All of them are experiencing a long and breathtaking concept phase. Large documents and high fidelity wireframes are produced and being discussed after a longer research period.
On the one hand this has nothing to do with an agile UX approach. On the other hand we do need some kind of vision for these rather big new functions. At the moment we are in some kind of transition phase where a leaner way of working will sooner or later evolve when first increments of these new functions are implemented.
Does "Lean UX" say one always has to work in a lean manner without trying to work on the big picture? Shall we always respond instantly (in small frequency) to users and stakeholders needs or is it legit in our current situation to work on the big picture for some time?
