Day 5 of the design sprint is about testing your prototype and getting feedback on your ideas. That way, you can quickly learn what is or isn’t working about the concept. Yesterday, the interviewer spent time putting together a list of questions for the interview sessions. Earlier this week, your team recruited 5 participants for Friday’s research.

Towards the end of the day, we will do a test run to check on our progress and adjust from there.Read more »
Day 3 is all about picking a direction and going forward with it. Over the course of the third day of the Design Sprint, we will assess which parts of our designs are most successful and create a storyboard to show the steps that our target customer might take towards achieving the goal.

Their process is the starting point from which all variations of Design Sprints come from, and I work with their framework to create Design Sprints that are customized to suit client needs.Read more »
Do you know what the most successful apps and digital products have in common? An idea. An idea that was challenged, tested, recalibrated, and validated to be a perfect market-fit. New startup leaders may find it challenging to turn their ideas into a product. More specifically, a product that solves the right problem for the right users. That’s where we come in.
