  11. 11. A. B. C. Question 4 / 10 Should decision makers be included in a design sprint? yes: they make sure the design sprint doesn’t go out of scope no: they are the voice of the status quo and they risk to kill creativity it depends whether they’re constructive or negative people
  12. 12. A. B. C. Question 5 / 10 How should the team look like? just like the Seven Dwarfs: all men, short and bearded ideally the team should be a group of colleagues who already work together in the company the team should include people from different departments (and who are happy to attend)
  13. 13. A. B. C. Question 6 / 10 Is it trickier to organize a design sprint if you are a B2C or a B2B organization? B2C: your final customers have to be invited for the user testing phase, and they’re usually not willing to cooperate B2C: there is a bigger risk of a brand image damage B2B: involving Businesses rather than Customers implies a higher level of complexity
  14. 14. A. B. C. Question 7 / 10 If you are a B2B, how would you make sure that your clients can attend the design sprint? I’d book their time well in advance I’d send them reminders every 3 days I would’t invite them at all - I don’t want them to have a direct insight into my organization’s innovation plan
  15. 15. A. B. C. Question 8 / 10 Can facilitators take part in the process, or should they only focus on facilitating the process?

  18. 18. A. B. C. Let’s see the correct answers.
  19. 19. A. B. C. there shouldn’t be any defined scope, to let creativity flow freely the scope should be kept as broad as possible, ideally covering all the company’s services or products the design sprint should target a specific challenge / pain point of the customers Question 1 / 10 How broad does the scope of the design sprint need to be?
  20. 20. A. B. C. A design sprint targets a specific product or service challenge, so you need to know what you’re planning to solve and create upfront. If this is not the case, your design challenge might be too broad and therefore needs to be scoped first. Using the Empathy and Define phase of Design Thinking could help you with this exercise, prior to running a design sprint. Extra Tip Be specific with the problem you want to solve. there shouldn’t be any defined scope, to let creativity flow freely the scope should be kept as broad as possible, ideally covering all the company’s services or products the design sprint should target a specific challenge / pain point of the customers Question 1 / 10 How broad does the scope of the design sprint need to be?
  21. 21. A. B. C. send her/him this quiz, plus 7 other relevant links about design sprint show her/him that other organizations are already using design sprints promise her/him a 1-hour ride on your Tesla Question 2 / 10 How can you convince your manager to give design sprints a chance?
  22. 22. A. B. C. If you struggle to convince your managers to allocate 5 days to the core team, inspire them by sharing success stories from other companies who have ran design sprints and came out stronger from it. We’ve been running several design sprints with our clients, so if you’re in need of cases, drop us a line. Extra Tip Direct experience is often the best way. send her/him this quiz, plus 7 other relevant links about design sprint show her/him that other organizations are already using design sprints promise her/him a 1-hour ride on your Tesla Question 2 / 10 How can you convince your manager to give design sprints a chance?
  23. 23. A. B. C. 3 is the magic number the more the people, the more the ideas, the better the outputs Question 3 / 10 How many people should you involve in the design sprint from your organization? if 7 Dwarfs are enough for Snow White, then 7 is good enough for a design sprint
  24. 24. A. B. C. A core characteristic and strength of design sprint is that in only 5 days you’re able to reach results. However, in order to make the most of this process, the core team should also be equally lean. Based on our experience, the core team should consist of no more than 7 people for the design sprint. Stay between 5 and 7 participants. 3 is the magic number the more the people, the more the ideas, the better the outputs Question 3 / 10 How many people should you involve in the design sprint from your organization? if 7 Dwarfs are enough for Snow White, then 7 is good enough for a design sprint Extra Tip
  25. 25. A. B. C. yes: they make sure the design sprint doesn’t go out of scope no: they are the voice of the status quo and they risk to kill creativity it depends whether they’re constructive or negative people Question 4 / 10 Should decision makers be included in a design sprint?
  26. 26. A. B. C. A crucial role to be taken into account when establishing the team: always have someone who has the mandate to make decisions. Why? You don’t want to be stuck in infinite conversations about the overall strategy of your organization - in these situations, the decision maker can make them end. This could either be the sponsor of the design sprint, or someone representing her/him to make the required decisions in their place. Extra Tip Keep the design sprint relevant. yes: they make sure the design sprint doesn’t go out of scope no: they are the voice of the status quo and they risk to kill creativity it depends whether they’re constructive or negative people Question 4 / 10 Should decision makers be included in a design sprint?
  27. 27. A. B. C. just like the Seven Dwarfs: all men, short and bearded ideally the team should be a group of colleagues who already work together in the company Question 5 / 10 How should the team look like? the team should include people from different departments (and who are happy to attend)
  28. 28. A. B. C. The members involved should stretch across various departments e.g. sales, marketing, R&D and also cross-level in order to ensure high diversity in both skillset and expertise. Since running a design sprint requires the team to collaborate and solve problems in a different way, you have to create the necessary circumstances to pivot. Mindset and attitude are infectious, so make sure those on board actually want to board the ship. Extra Tip Create the opportunity to connect departments that are usually far away from each other. just like the Seven Dwarfs: all men, short and bearded ideally the team should be a group of colleagues who already work together in the company Question 5 / 10 How should the team look like? the team should include people from different departments (and who are happy to attend)
  29. 29. A. B. C. Question 6 / 10 Is it trickier to organize a design sprint if you are a B2C or a B2B organization? B2C: your final customers have to be invited for the user testing phase, and they’re usually not willing to cooperate B2C: there is a bigger risk of a brand image damage B2B: involving Businesses rather than Customers implies a higher level of complexity
  30. 30. A. B. C. Question 6 / 10 Is it trickier to organize a design sprint if you are a B2C or a B2B organization? B2C: your final customers have to be invited for the user testing phase, and they’re usually not willing to cooperate B2C: there is a bigger risk of a brand image damage B2B: involving Businesses rather than Customers implies a higher level of complexity Design sprints for B2B are trickier, for multiple reasons: 1. It requires your B2B customers to commit resources for understanding and validating the concepts. 2. As you involve other businesses, you need to allow more time for planning the design sprint. 3. In a B2B environment, decision power is spread out so make sure you’re talking to the right people and decide on who’s feedback you want to receive. 4. You may need to carefully deal with confidentiality, as you allow your customers to the core of your innovation strategy. Extra Tip If you’re a B2B, allow at least 1 month to organize a design sprint.
  31. 31. A. B. C. I’d book their time well in advance I’d send them reminders every 3 days I would’t invite them at all - I don’t want them to have a direct insight into my organization’s innovation plan Question 7 / 10 If you are a B2B, how would you make sure that your clients can attend the design sprint?
  32. 32. A. B. C. You’ll need to invite some of your clients to come over multiple times during the design sprint (at least on Monday, Wednesday and Friday). Make sure you really plan upfront for user testing as their agendas often get tied up quickly. Also, arrange the design sprint at a location close to your customer so it’s easier for them to travel and access the venue. Getting their buy- in might not be very easy, so help them to see what’s in it for them: they’ll directly benefit from the innovative solutions you’ll develop during the design sprint, as their feedback and aspirations will be taken into account throughout the process. I’d book their time well in advance I’d send them reminders every 3 days I would’t invite them at all - I don’t want them to have a direct insight into my organization’s innovation plan Question 7 / 10 If you are a B2B, how would you make sure that your clients can attend the design sprint? Extra Tip Book your clients well in advance (and show how they will benefit from it).
  33. 33. A. B. C. Yes, they should take active part in the process, just like any other team member No, facilitators are meant to assist the conversation as external observators - they shouldn’t intervene in the actual ideation phases Yes, they should take part in the process, only to ensure that the conversation stays relevant and insightful Question 8 / 10 Can facilitators take part in the process, or should they only focus on facilitating the process?
  34. 34. A. B. C. The role of having a facilitator for the design sprint is to ensure that the process moves forward, that participants won’t get stuck in discussions, and that there’s a nice pace (remember, we only have 5 days). This way team members can focus on the sessions and generating content. However, at Board of Innovation we also believe that whoever facilitates the process should also challenge the team on the generated content. They should ensure that whatever is created stays relevant for the problem we’re trying to solve and that the ideas are the most innovative they can come up with. This can happen by feeding the team with inspirations we’re sitting on and by questioning the relevance of the solutions they came up with. Yes, they should take active part in the process, just like any other team member Yes, they should take part in the process, only to ensure that the conversation stays relevant and insightful No, facilitators are meant to assist the conversation as external observators - they shouldn’t intervene in the actual ideation phases Extra Tip Allow facilitators to spice up the conversation. Question 8 / 10 Can facilitators take part in the process, or should they only focus on facilitating the process?
  35. 35. A. B. C. a zebra, post-its a zebra, post-its, blackboards, moving tables post-its, blackboards, no tables Question 9 / 10 What is indispensable in a design sprint room?
  36. 36. A. B. C. The room should allow you to easily assemble and reset. This means that the setup is not confined to one layout but it can be changed and shifted with the process. Having a big meeting table in the middle of the room is a big no-go, unless it can be de-assembled into smaller tables. Other than that, white boards, flip charts, markers, post-its and post-it-friendly walls are the key essentials to think about. And yes, let an inflatable zebra (or any other kind of randomness) come into the workshop room - it will know how to entertain the participants. a zebra, post-its a zebra, post-its, blackboards, moving tables post-its, blackboards, no tables Extra Tip Create a comfortable, insightful and flexible space. Question 9 / 10 What is indispensable in a design sprint room?
  37. 37. A. B. C. Somewhere else In the auditorium of my company office, or somewhere familiar to the attendants and with plenty of space and post-it-friendly walls In the cafeteria of my company office, where food and beverages are easily accessible Question 10 / 10 Where should you host your design sprint?
  38. 38. A. B. C. We have good experiences with running design sprints in a different location than where the client is based. This helps the team to act outside of an existing box and to not be distracted by the daily activities. We look for inspiring, creative venues to spark new ways of thinking. Our tip For best results, bring the participants outside the box office. Question 10 / 10 Where should you host your design sprint? Somewhere else In the auditorium of my company office, or somewhere familiar to the attendants and with plenty of space and post-it-friendly walls In the cafeteria of my company office, where food and beverages are easily accessible
