With our modified Sprint framework, every team can now run a Design Sprint wherever they are in the world.
The Remote Design Sprint is a week-long process for answering big product problems and business questions through design, prototyping, and testing ideas with customers - online.
It's essentially a way of working that reduces the risk of projects going over budget and over tight deadlines.
By creating a realistic prototype and testing it out with real people, you can discover whether the solution in mind is really the right one to invest further time and money into.
We use a four-day design sprint with teams, with only needing everyone together for the first two days.
Together, we understand the long term goal, define the challenges and produce a mass of solutions.
We curate and vote on the best solutions together, then define what should be in the prototype with a storyboard.
Once we know what we are designing, we create the prototype and setup the user test scenarios.
Testing the prototype with five real people, we then use the feedback to create clear next steps in the form of a product backlog.
The outcome of a Sprint is the validation of an idea and more specifically, a user-tested prototype of that idea which looks and feels like a real website or app with the benefit of having been tested in real life by real people.
When it comes to handover, we'll have collected risks and assumptions, prioritised features into phases and created user stories - familiar outputs that most production teams can move forward with.
And finally, all of the decisions and documentation needed to move things forward in the form of a Sprint summary report.
Etch Sprints was specifically started to meet a growing need from companies needing to use a better way of working to help meet customer expectations of value.
Lead by Ross Chapman, who worked product-side for over a decade, we have the UX design expertise and problem solving experience to work with product teams at any stage.
Choosing Etch Sprints as a design partner will enable your business to get outside knowledge, inside and enable that capability to grow with your own people.
