Remote Design Sprint (english) #UXCE21

Remote Design Sprint (english) #UXCE21

Remote workshops are here to stay and partly evolve into hybrid formats as well. Despite (partly still being in) lockdown, demanding to work from home, Design Sprints can be used successfully to answer critical business questions by sparking innovation, encourage user-centered thinking, aligning teams under a shared vision, and gaining insights about the marketability of products before their launch – if you know how to do them remote.

This talk provides an intensive and compact introduction into the method mix from Google Ventures, how this structured process works, about its strengths, and most importantly, how it can be conducted successfully as “remote”. Since this is significantly different to “in-person”, this will cover a comparison of the physical and digital version of Design Sprints – and it provides a lot of practical insights for remote workshops in general too.
