Remote Design Sprint

What is the Remote Design Sprint?

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.

It's essentially a way of working that reduces the risk of projects going over budget and beyond 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.

Day 1

Together, we understand the long term goal, define the challenges and produce a mass of solutions.

Day 2

We curate and vote on the best solutions together, then define what should be in the prototype with a storyboard.

Day 3

Once we know what we are designing, we create the prototype on our computers and setup the user test scenarios.

Day 4

Testing the prototype with five real people, we then use the feedback to create clear next steps in the form of a product backlog.
