DESIGN SPRINT DAY BY DAY
DAY 0 - PREPARE
Before starting a sprint, it is important to be clear about the project, its context, deadlines and goals. What types of projects are particularly well fitted for a Design Sprint?
DAY 1 - UNDERSTAND
The first day of Design Sprint is all about understanding , what problem we want to solve. This is an opportunity for all members of the team to share all they know including experts around the topic and define the objectives of prototype.
DAY 2 - SKETCH
This step,Google calls " diverge " or Sketch. allows each participant to individually sketch their own interpretation of the future service/ product. It avoids endless brainstorming and brings more tangible solutions to the table.
DAY 3 - DECIDE
The decision process. This day is important, because this is where big decisions will be taken regarding the rest of the Sprint : what features will we keep ? what are we going to prototype ?
DAY 5 - TEST
On day 5, an ultimate test will be performed by neutral users who will be invited to test the prototype. Based on the different target audiences (personas) that are defined on the first day ,5 testers will be selected to join during the last day of the Sprint.
