About the Session:
A 1-day, intensive workshop to give you all the necessary tools and knowledge for framing the right problem and making your Design Sprint a true success.
“Fall in love with the problem, not the solution” – Uri Levine, co-founder of Waze.
Identifying the right problem up-front is crucial for any Design Sprint and we have seen many ambitious Design Sprints fail when the stage isn’t set properly or there is no common understanding of the actual problem.
We will help you take all the steps in the right direction and learn how to address relevant aspects of a problem, engage your team towards a common purpose and gain the confidence that you are tackling a problem worth solving in the Design Sprint
