About Shamsi Brinn

I am a UX manager and work at the crossroads of design and development. My passion and focus is integrating different disciplines within teams.

I developed the no-handoff agile method to solve a challenge I and my fellow team members face every day: how can developers and designers become more integrated teams and better support each other’s work? Standing on the shoulders of giants, the no-handoff method embraces the core elements of agile thinking and applies them to teamwork across development and design.

Let’s make project handoff a thing of the past with the no-handoff method.

No-handoff is a fluid, ongoing method developing within a culture of learning. I offer this process to anyone who can benefit from it too. Use it, change it, share your insights. Lets make project handoff a thing of the past.
