Great summary of good moderation - "In my experience, the best findings in a research session are concentrated in two areas: what the participant does and the feedback they volunteer — unprompted. These are the gems, the golden nuggets that come closest to revealing how the user would experience the design realistically."
Colleen Roller explains how to moderate effectively in usability research to significantly improve the quality of your research findings.

Nice book list!
Clients and students I work with often ask me to recommend a good book on user experience. This is actually a lot harder than you might think. Someone who's new to the field won't gain much from a book aimed at experts, and someone looking to improve their sketching skills won't learn much from a book about usability testing. So here is my list of recommended books along with the people I think they are best suited for.

“Remember: there are no BAD ideas. Now, who wants to share their idea first?” That's how the team member started the brainstorming session. And he was greeted by silence. At that moment, everyone in the room realized how badly this would turn out. There would be no fresh new ideas to jump on.

Both the disciplines of Agile software development and UX share the common drives of increasing performance and productivity. However, harnessing the power of both elements simultaneously can sometimes represent a challenge.
