Using this Google Ventures method to validate new ideas, a Design Sprint can answer critical business questions, create a prototype quickly and get immediate feedback from users. How can you get more for less?
The method comprises the best practices from Design Thinking, UX Design, Lean Startup and Agile to develop and test products and services in less than a week with guaranteed success.
If you are not afraid of innovation and your team wants to improve, you should try out this method in your projects (with regard to services, products, applications or startup).
You don't need any previous knowledge, just the desire to create something great! And an expert design sprint facilitator at your side - or you can become a facilitator yourself.
You can act in different roles, e.g. as a decision maker, moderator or expert. For the creation of the prototype team members need to act as makers, writers, asset collectors, stitchers and interviewers. Choose the role that best suits you or your experience and helps your team and make sure that decision-makers and facilitators have the necessary skills.
Set a strategy and a goal based on your users, their needs, context and competition.
Develop solutions through the visualization of your problems and the grouping of ideas.
Choose the best ideas from which to design a viable concept.
Build a prototype that values smooth usability more than an extraordinary design.
Present the prototype to real users outside your company to learn first hand what works and what doesn't.
You seek to drive innovation and encourage user-centred thinking.
Want to improve, adapt or create your products or services in a few days.
Your goal is to get a tangible prototype to test with customers.
All this is true including saving time and money!
From 7 to 9 people (one person in charge and several experts from the company in marketing and sales, finance, UX Design and IT and/or logistics).
A large, well-lit room with walls or whiteboards, panels, or white paper attached.
Fundamental for controlling time and setting the pace of the Sprint.
Sticky notes of two different sizes, markers, A4-size sheets, duct tape and round stickers will be your allies in shaping your ideas.
Fruits, dairy products, nuts, chocolate, coffee or tea are ideal to maintain the energy level high throughout the day.
The new Design Sprint manual will be available from May 2019 in German “Das Design Sprint Handbuch”. Jana Noack and José Díaz, Innovation Coaches at trendig, have summarized their experiences from numerous Design Sprint workshops and trainings in this book. It will serve as a companion and reference book, so that everyone with the book on the table can perform their design sprint.WANNA READ IT?
