    Frank Garofalo is quoted describing the embrace of agile: "Adopting an agile methodology for projects has allowed us to embrace uncertainty while providing focus. Using a two-week iteration cycle allows us to have focus within those two weeks, with the ability to adapt to changing business needs. At the end of each iteration cycle, we can refocus efforts through an iteration planning meeting in addition to having a retrospective meeting to learn from situations. The goal of the retrospective meeting is to be better prepared to navigate future situations. To coach the organization through these skills requires everyone involved to be knowledgeable about scrum methodology. An additional benefit of embracing a two-week iteration cycle has enabled us to encourage team members to take calculated risks. Then at the end of the two weeks, we review the results and plan accordingly for the next iteration cycle."

    To the prompted statement "The most effective way to balance HMI design and usability is...," Frank Garofalo shared his expertise stating: "Simply put, 'it depends.' It depends on your target audience for the interface. Generally, the interface design and usability should be complementary, working in conjunction to provide something that is useful, usable, and compelling. More specifically about usability, if people are unable to successfully use an application, then what is the point of the application's existence?"
