d design, regard proposed integration models and perceive multidisciplinary cooperation and integration. The impression is that fundamental principles of agile and user-centered methodologies are not necessarily merged in integrated approaches. The developers confirm the UX-designers notion that development is emphasized over design work, and that user-centered work is given the least importance – thus the success of merged models currently rests heavily on comfortable project constraints. Findings suggest proposed parallel integration models are generally well received among developers, however the success of merged models seems to rest heavily on comfortable project constraints. An interesting insight from the study is how proposed parallel models may be disadvantageous to interdisciplinary collaboration in multidisciplinary teams.
