The issues surrounding the integration of agile methods and user-centered design is discussed in Chapter 9. There is a lot of information about agile methods available on the Internet, but less is written concerning the integration of these two approaches. However there is a yahoo discussion group at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/agile-usability. One popular agile method is eXtreme Programming (XP), and a good starting point to find out more about XP is www.extremeprogramming.org. Also see the Connextra case study on this site. Further information about agile methods is at http://www.martinfowler.com/articles/agileStory.html
