In this paper, we present an empirical study on the integration of user-centred design and Agile, with the goal of achieving a development process more considerate of user needs. In particular, we introduced a curated set of lightweight, qualitative design practices in an Agile company through a series of workshops. Our results suggest that the followed approach enhanced internal communication and promoted a concrete shift towards a more user-centred perspective. However, the presence of a predominant non-Agile customer seems to have limited potential benefits.
