Sprinting Towards Innovation
We have heard about how developers use Sprints as an agile tool to get code shipped. How about using a similar concept for innovating on an idea? Ideas are abundant and many times teams struggle to figure out which ideas to pursue. Design Sprints use a design-thinking-like process to understand which ideas are worth moving to the next steps. In this interactive workshop you'll learn:
- How to research an idea's merit from a customer's perspective
- How to gain insights from that data (and how different the data may be from what you might expect)
- Modifying, evolving or killing an idea based on that research, prototyping and feedback
Note: Due to feedback, we're cutting networking in the beginning. We'll start presentation shortly after 6:30 so arrive on time!
