Have you been wanting greater confidence in your product is solving users problems? Design sprints are a quick and easy way to validate new ideas for your product. In this talk, Kyle will go over how he runs design sprints at thoughtbot. Originally pioneered by Google Ventures, the design sprint is an exercise to quickly ideate, prototype and test new products or features. It uses time-boxed design exercises and games to add assurance that your team is heading in the right direction for the product. Through five distinct phases, the design sprint participants take the time to fully understand the problem they are trying to solve, create as many ideas around a solution for a solution, converge down on one idea to then prototype quickly and test in front of a group of potential users.
