The design sprint is a well-known, proven process among creatives and designers. It's an efficient method for testing and executing on a product or feature, but few product professionals truly know how to carry out the process step by step. Richard Banfield, UX agency Co Founder, and C. Todd Lombardo, Innovation Architect, regularly lead creative teams using the design sprint process to problem solve and innovate.

Design Sprint Workshop
With expert practitioners Richard Banfield, CEO and Co-Founder of Fresh Tilled Soil
and C. Todd Lombardo, Innovation Architect at Constant Contact
We have heard about how developers use sprints as an agile tool to get the code shipped. How about using a similar concept for innovating on an idea? Ideas are abundant and many times teams struggle to figure out which ideas to pursue. Design Sprints use a design-thinking-like process to understand which ideas are worth moving to the next steps.
A design sprint is a 5-step process for solving business problems through design, prototyping, and testing with users. In this interactive workshop you'll learn:
- How to research an idea's merit from a customer's perspective
- How to gain insights from that data (and how different the data may be from what you might expect)
- Modifying, evolving or killing an idea based on that research, prototyping and feedback
- How to define the problem and discover insights focusing on the problem that needs to be addressed, what is currently known, and what more information is necessary
You’ll have an opportunity to have hands on experience with these activities and tools:
- Question formulation
- Discovery interview
- Empathy Map
- Journey Maps
- Challenge Maps
- Scenarios & Storyboarding
- Assumption Table
- Make a prototype that can test the core assumptions of the Design Sprint Activities
Fees include a copy of the workshop materials and a mid-afternoon snack.
