Design Sprints 102. On The Road To Mastery
Design sprints are a popular and powerful way to accelerate design, unblock problems and investigate new ideas. They are also fraught with challenges for the design sprint facilitator. From creating an environment for fast-paced creativity and critique to maintaining momentum and stamina in the team, through to the diplomacy needed to make a myriad of design decisions.
How do you successfully get a team to use design thinking skills to create and test valuable solutions to critical problems in a tight timeframe?
This practical workshop will help you move from being able to run a good design sprint to facilitating a great design sprint.
Join Jerlyn and Chris to learn (and practice) some techniques, tips and secrets gained from running numerous design sprints, that go beyond the book, to enhance your next design sprint.
