Hope you are doing well this COVID-19 season and keeping safe. In case you are wondering, we have been busy putting together the IxDA Community Mentoring Initiative (http://bit.ly/ixdasg_mentoring2020) over the last few months and it'll kick start this April so check out the link above if you'll like to find out more.
This month, we've invited a dear friend, Shaza Hakim, UX Principal at Stampede Design and Curator of UX Malaysia to share with us practical tips on running Design Sprints.
Shaza’s design team at Stampede has a unique perspective—they work with product teams across industries, from energy to mobility to banking and venture philanthropy and witness first-hand the overwhelming uncertainty and risks teams face only to discover that they have spent all those time making something people don't want.
But what if instead of false assumptions, teams have the gift of foresight when they start building products? What if instead of throwing a bunch of features to users and hope one sticks, we can improve the chances of making products that people actually want? And what if instead of struggling to get buy in, those people emerging from your design sprint now have a unified and right focus?
In this talk Shaza will walk us through the process of hacking product design through Design Sprint, from understanding what user needs to putting a prototype in their hands in 5 days’ time. She will also share her hits and misses so you can really get into the practical spirit of design sprint.
This session will be held remotely over a Zoom conference call (we'll share the link soon) and you can join in the comfort of your home/office/cafe.
