Design Sprint | Tale and Info "Co[De] Design for Birgunj"

Posted By: Dipesh Kumar On Thursday, November 13, 2014

The design sprint is a process for prototyping and testing any product in a very short amount of time. The general format can be easily modified to suit various requirements, with the focus being on getting people of various specialties involved in the process of solving a design problem, which itself can range from a feature to an entire product.

What happens at Design Sprint?

# People are broken down into groups, and every team is given a persona. In this case, let’s assume it’s a female chef who also runs a cooking show. She’s visiting India, and will be taking along her Google Glass with her. What apps would you design for her to get the best use out of it on this trip?

# Post it notes are distributed to all the attendees. They are encouraged to jot down all their ideas individually, however crazy, on an individual post it. About 10 minutes are spent on this process. Ideas for this case can be along the lines of an app that visually scans food and lists out the recipes.

# The teams then discuss their ideas with their teammates. Together, they grade ideas on a graph as shown, with the Y-Axis representing technical difficulty and X-Axis representing benefit to the user.

# Once they’re all marked out, the teams choose their one idea that they’d like to work on. Typically, this idea isn't too difficult, while at the same time offering a lot of benefit to the user. One such idea  in our case is of an app that makes live video reviews of food possible, which is far simpler to  accomplish as compared to the recipe idea mentioned before.

# The teams prepare prototypes (typically without any coding) to demonstrate their apps, which are presented to all the attendees.
