  10. 10. Understand 360 lightning talks on business goals, technology and user research Visiting users in the field where the product is used Stakeholder map User interviews Summarize the learnings Competitive Overview
  11. 11. 360 degree lighting talks To understand the problem from many point of you. The talk should include 1. Business goals and success metrics / 5 mins 2. Technical capacities and challenges / 5 mins 3. Relevant user research / 5 mins 4. Lay it out the existing page/screen and feel the experience
  12. 12. Competitive Overview What other products and services can inspire the team work? A brief review of 3-10 similar projects can be a great way to kick start the sprint. For example, if a team is working on a online store experience, they might want to visit the sites, such as Google Play and list what they like and dislike.
  13. 13. User Interviews Users are the ultimate judges of whether a product is good or not. This is why it’s a great idea to start a sprint by finding and interviewing users. The user interviews should include questions about how users use a particular product, and what they like and dislike about it. When designing a new product, the interviews can focus on what alternative ways users employ to solve their problem.
  14. 14. Field visits In some cases, interviews by themselves are less useful than visiting users in the context where they use the product. For example, if making a product for technical support teams, it’s useful to visit the offices where they work and the space where they meet clients. Field visits include all the best practices of a user interview, but additionally allow the team to understand the context.
  15. 15. Stakeholder map Products and services often have multiple types of people they are designed for. The stakeholder map lists all the possible people concerned in a situation. 30 minute how-to 1. List all possible stakeholders in a project / 10 min 2. Group the stakeholders in meaningful sections / 2 min 3. Decide what stakeholders you will design for during the sprint, and in what order. 4. Plan need finding activities and consider creating a team to work on each group.
  16. 16. Summarize the learnings Use sticky notes to share the ideas, and group them into themes. Vote on the best ideas, the ones that bring the most insight and should be pursued. This exercise is a “first check” and not a final decision on a direction. The team will continue to learn and decide in the later stages, so nothing at this point is final. For more information, read more about the “How might we?” method attributed to by IDEO and described a number of articles online.
  17. 17. Diverge Crazy 8 Silent critique Sketch storyboard in 5 minutes explore as many ideas as possible Define the part of problem Take notes Mind Map Three minute critique Super vote
  18. 18. Define the part of the problem Now decide which part to focus on first. It usually makes sense to have everybody in the sprint focus on the same part of the problem at once.
  19. 19. Take notes This is your chance to reload that stuff into your brain. Everyone takes a piece of paper and jots down anything they think is useful.
  20. 20. Mind Map Now you’re going to add all the other ideas that are in your head, mix them with the notes you just took, and loosely organize them on paper.
  21. 21. Crazy 8 in 5 min This is a great technique that originates from Gamestorming workshops. It invites the team to work individually, and sketch 8 ideas in 5 minutes. It’s a great warm up exercise! 7 minute how-to: 1. Give everyone a sheet of paper and ask them to fold it 3 times 1 min 2. Ask the team to unfold the paper and notice the 8 grid rectangle created. 3. Ask them to sketch 8 ideas in 5 mins, one in each rectangle. / 5 min
  22. 22. 1 storyboard in 10 min Sometimes, the ideas are too complex to express on 1 page. This is when your team need to think in terms of stories or flows. Ask your team to sketch a storyboard of all the key steps the user much take. If your team is new to design, encourage them to think in terms of comic book strips :).
  23. 23. Zen Voting / Silent Critique After the sketching, it’s time to share the ideas on a whiteboard. Encourage sprinters to do zen voting: reviewing the ideas and voting in silence. This allows everyone to form their own opinions before they get biased by others.
  24. 24. Three minutes critique Everybody gathers around the storyboards one at a time. First, people talk about what they liked, then we ask the person who drew it if we missed anything important.
  25. 25. Repeat if still other part
  26. 26. Decide Search for conflicts Best shot or Battle royale? Thinking hats Whiteboard User Story Select the best ideas so far
  27. 27. Search for conflicts Now put the same area in same category. It might be more than one approaches and it is conflict. Each conflict is like gold mine.
  28. 28. Team review & decision on what to prototype At this point, the team can discuss the best ideas and decide which ones to prototype. Best shot or battle royale?
  29. 29. Thinking hats If your team is new or tends to be biased in their opinion, assign everyone a Thinking Hat. Each hat represents a different point of view that’s valuable and that can enrich the final decision. Encourage everyone to choose a perspective and discuss the decision from that point of view.
  30. 30. Whiteboard user story Now we’re going to make a storyboard that shows exactly how the user will step through your prototype, click by click. This storyboard will become the spec for building the prototype. This is an activity that the group does together — it’s actually the last group step before you break for prototyping. Get one person to draw, but don’t make them figure everything out on their own.
  31. 31. Prototype Mocks Demos Videos Physical prototype
  32. 32. Prototyping A prototype is something that makes your ideas “real enough to feel”, so you can get feedback from users. Teams tend to spend the most time in this stage. A prototype could be: ● Mock ● Demo ● Video ● Physical prototype
  33. 33. Validate User Test Stakeholder feedback Technical feasibility check Test the ideas with users, business stakeholders and technical experts
  34. 34. User Testing As soon as the team is done prototyping, it’s time to test. A simple user test can uncover valuable insights very quickly. What do users like and dislike in the prototype? What would they like to improve? Does the solution meet their needs overall?
  35. 35. Stakeholder validation The key stakeholder of the projects often is the one who decides to fund or allocate resources to the ideas. This person may be the Director of the group or the CEO of the company. Their review and approval is essential for the sprint to succeed.
  36. 36. Technical feasibilty validation Do the design ideas match or exceed the technical capacity of the team? An engineering review can help the team scope the work appropriately, and discuss potential workarounds.
