Lean Design Sprints
Knowing what is the best approach to generate a solution for a problem while building solutions, projects and products is not always simple. Gathering team members in the process to find the best possible solution to a given problem is undoubtedly every team’s goal. Making sure everyone contributes to an ideal solution, gathering different perspectives and assuring every member’s proactive commitment are key success factors.
We might call it Design Sprints or strategic workshops. This 5-day framework developed by Google Ventures has been successfully applied worldwide. We present you with a four-hour alternative which allows you to describe a context and to generate potential solutions for a given problem.
Whether working in person or in today’s distributed context, where every team member is working remotely, it is possible to obtain results. With several years of experience working with Portuguese unicorns and multinational companies, lecturers will teach some of the principles (context, ideation and decision) by illustrating real examples and providing practical exercises as well as techniques to a apply this framework, which was developed to produce big results without compromising a week of your team’s work.
