About this Workshop

A design sprint is a 5-phase framework that helps answer critical business questions through rapid prototyping and user testing. Sprints let your team reach clearly defined goals and deliverables and gain key learnings quickly. The process helps spark innovation, encourage user-centered thinking, align your team under a shared vision and get you to product launch faster.

In this hands-on workshop we will share our experiences of using specific methods within a design sprint to go from problems to ideas. Using an example, participants will learn how to:

  • capture observations from research
  • analyse and arrive at insights
  • translate insights to 'how might we's'
  • use the 'how might we’s' to generate ideas
