UXA2022 Day 2; Kerry Matheson & Catherine Gleeson - Slowing down to speed up: The accidental innovation

UXA2022 Day 2; Kerry Matheson & Catherine Gleeson - Slowing down to speed up: The accidental innovation

In a world where we are striving for increased velocity, greater productivity and better efficiency we talk about the unexpected Value we produced through the process of stretching our design sprint over 5 weeks instead of a single day.

We’ll talk about how we seeded a design thinking model which encouraged a deeper understanding of our most vulnerable members while generating a cultural shift into collegial cross-team collaboration.

You’ll not only get an insight into the value pockets we extracted, but also gain insights into a practical format to run your own design thinking sprint.

We’ll share the insights we gained along the way as well as a practical format to run your own design thinking sprint.
