VALIDATE IF YOUR IDEA IS WORTH DEVELOPING, RISK FREE & IN A SHORT TIME

When working on existing problems or new digital products there is a lot of uncertainty involved. You don't know if your customers will take to it until you actually try. The value driven design sprint is a speedy process to identify if your idea is worth the effort of developing.

What will it bring?

Your teams will become more productive and happier team is to replace all open discussion or brainstorming with a structured process that leads to more ideas, clearer decisions and better outcomes. Instead of never-ending discussions and constant back-and-forth, it will leave you and your team feeling energised, productive, and will provide you with tangible, actionable results.

When is it right and when to do something else?

It's about impact, complexity and uncertainty. First determine if it's cost-effective: do the investment cost, opportunity cost and potential brand reputation damage eclipse the cost of the design sprint? Next, address questions about uncertainty and complexity. Ask yourself how certain you are that your customers desire the solution? Does it need employees from different groups to work together? If uncertainty is medium to high, plus the impact of failure is big, then you should consider a design sprint. If not, a design sprint might feel excessive and other more simple methods (i.e. waterfall) are probably better suited.

How does it work?

You solve complex problems throughout co-creation, rapid prototyping, and qualitative testing with targeted users. By validating assumptions with your customers at early stages you eliminate assumption biases. The team ideates a mass of ideas and decides on the most promising solutions, which are tested with a prototype. Seasoned ecommerce consultants will be the facilitators and run the sprint with you.

Value Driven Design Sprint

As an agency we work for many different companies from lots of industries. Our seasoned design consultants are acting as facilitators for the sprints and will prepare the exercises. During the sprint they can add value beyond facilitating, challenging your ideas and introducing fresh ideas from other industries. They are skilled in creating customer experiences and know how to make ideas successful through design.

In-person or remote?

To fit your specific business goals and adjust to the constraints of remote work, we have created two different variations: In-person and Remote.

We expect you to bring around 6 key stakeholders (including a decision maker) to join the Value Driven Design Sprint to work on the challenge at hand. We will line up 2 of the best matching seasoned consultants to guide you through the process and both challenge and coach you in fast decision-making.

The sprint will keep your team busy for 5 days: either in a single week (in-person) or spread across 4 weeks (because remote workshopping is intensive).

Book a FREE, non-binding Sprint intake to together look into your challenges and the potential the Sprint has to solve them. We will also share some of our clients' use cases and results, and build the plan to go from strategy to concept and then to a prototype which can be validated. We discuss the pros and cons of running the sprint in-person or remotely to find the best fit for your team.

Day 2

Design concept and create storyboard

The second day is about getting creative: develop as many concepts as possible to answer your challenge. Together we select the best one or make a combination of several concepts to tackle the challenge at hand.

Amazing how we were able to sketch so many possible solutions.

Day 3

Rapidly build high fidelity prototype

On day three, the best concept or idea is translated into a tangible solution that can be tested with the customers interviewed on day one. Pending on the goal of the value driven design sprint, this tangible solution could vary from a pitch deck, a clickable prototype, a new business model one-pager etc.. 

Super exciting to see how everything comes together on the 3rd day.
