Lean Design Sprints

How it works

The Lean Design Sprint is an accelerated discovery phase that focuses on the key proposition or problem and getting to a solution faster.

  • 5 days. 3 days of problem-solving, 2 days of design and testing
  • Accelerate the standard design process to launch products faster
  • Quickly understand if your solution is worth developing or where it needs to change
  • Define the problem, Investigate solutions, agree, design and test with customers

Our principles

A well-defined problem is a well-solved problem.

  • You must know your ‘what’ and the ‘why’.
  • Believe in the people and the process.
  • Focus on the concept not the detail of the UI.
  • Validation with 5 customers will get 80% of your insights

The Process

D.I.D.I.T

Our D.I.D.I.T. Framework

Our D.I.D.I.T framework™ – Our tried and tested framework relies on a partnership with you. We act as your facilitators and designers to drive outcomes that would be impossible outside of the Design Sprint process.

The outcome of a Design Sprint can be totally different depending on the problem you are trying to solve. Sometimes it’s a roadmap, sometimes it’s a method and sometimes it’s a product. At North, we focus on working with software companies because that’s what we know best!

There are five vital phases to your design sprint:

The D.I.D.I.T framework

What does it look like

The D.I.D.I.T Design Sprint is a 5-day process for rapidly solving problems, creating new solutions or improving new ones. It compresses months of work into just a few days!

This is what it looks like…

When to do a Design Sprint

Our clients approach us with a variety of different problems they are trying to solve. The design sprint methodology works with either the development of a new idea or the evaluation and optimisation a current product.

  • Increase the chance your investments will succeed
  • Speed up the product design & development process
  • Roadtest new ideas or solutions without building the whole product
  • Identify what the challenges are with the current experience
  • Remove guesswork; design, test, measure, learn

 

Outcomes

The outcome of a Lean Design Sprint can be totally different depending on the problem you are trying to solve.

Sometimes it’s a roadmap, sometimes it’s a product. The standard outcome includes:

  • Validation of some pre-flight research
  • Facilitation of the 5-day session
  • A functioning prototype of the solution
  • An executive report
  • Video recordings of the research sessions
  • Developer-ready design files
