Abstract

In this paper we show how a user-centered design (UCD) method can be successfully combined with an agile software development approach, namely feature-driven development (FDD), to develop the web-based information management system myPIM. This system supports users’ workflow requirements in research and teaching/learning contexts. It provides bookmark, file, and reference archives, as well as possibilities for exchanging information with colleagues and students. By describing the system and its development process we show how this combination of methodologies supported our development process to create a service that truly assists the target audience and is easy to use.
