VIRTUAL | WiSTEMM Series Presented by Burns & McDonnell: How To Run A Successful Virtual Design Sprint
A design sprint is a 5-day process invented at Google by Jake Knapp and UX specialists that uses design thinking for validating ideas and tackling business problems, guiding teams through a design-thinking-based process to uncover insights, prototype an idea, and test it with users. The process aims to help teams to clearly define goals, validate assumptions and decide on a product roadmap item before starting development. Basically, it's like fast-forwarding into the future, so you can see how customers react before you invest all the time and expense of creating your new product, service, marketing campaign... or whatever!
Many organizations have based their own design thinking process from Stanford's design thinking method or using Google and Jake Knapp’s 5-day process from the book “Sprint: How to Solve Big Problems and Test New Ideas in Just Five Days”. But 5-day design sprints have had its challenges during the pandemic including the ability to conduct a remote design sprint using the same process effectively, loss of productive time and the ability to collaborate with multiple stakeholders in one room.
Join this session to:
Learn how we created a hybrid approach to solving problems using design thinking and design sprint methodologies.
Understand more about the benefits of shorter design sprints for your organization and how to determine the optimal length for your own sprint.
Learn how to train your team to run design sprints.
Receive the tools and a step-by-step guide on running your own 2-hour virtual design sprint.
