The first step is to assemble a cross-functional team with the goal of aligning on a challenge and collaborating to create a solution. Each day of the product design sprint is focused on one goal: aligning, exploring solutions, deciding, prototyping, and finally testing.
Create a common understanding of the problem and set measurable goals to focus on solving throughout the sprint.
Derive inspiration from existing solutions understanding why they work. Following that, we will sketch various strategies of our own.
Go through possible solutions and decide which are is most likely to solve our long-term goal.
Create a realistic working prototype in just one day! At the same time, we prepare for user testing the next day.
Receive feedback on the prototype from real customers and learn what’s working and what’s not. Following that, we plan our next steps.
After a design sprint, we often run a second iteration sprint. In this iteration sprint, the focus is on refining the prototype. We apply the feedback that we received in the sprint and test it once again with our users.
Design sprints are customized to your team and your needs. Although we enjoy collaborating with your team in every step of the way, we can also tailor the workshop so your team is only present for a fraction of the time.
From the first day, we started realizing how much better our first product could have been if we had used a design sprint. Building and designing our app became a team effort and involved our users.This brought about a product that was supported by the team and wanted by our users.
