      User Experience, Agile, Virtual Assistant, Management Platform



            Much research has been carried out into the integration of User Experience and the Agile software development methodology. However, there has been no formal attempt to develop a computer-based management system to aid in the integration of these two concepts. This paper outlines the initial development of such a system; UX-Vision. It includes how the system operates, the design of its user interface, and the data structure. There is also discussion on how the system could be developed further to include a virtual assistant to indicate when and how UX activities should be carried out within Agile software development.
