How to develop better digital products?

On November 27th one day before our conference, we offer several amazing full day workshops. We will provide lunch and plenty of coffee to fuel you through the day.

Pick the workshop you’re interested in and buy your ticket – be quick as there are very limited seats for each workshop (max. 20 per workshop to ensure the best possible learning experience). As the workshops are run in parallel you can only attend one of them, and once purchased you cannot change your workshop.

You should, of course, also join us at the conference the day after these workshops, but tickets are completely separate. Conference tickets do NOT give you access to workshops, nor do workshop tickets give you access to the conference.

27. November 2019 – Startplatz, Cologne
Trainer: Nils Anhalt, Language: German

This workshop is part of our Pre-Conference Workshop day for Digitale Leute Summit 2019. Find a list of all workshops below.

Design Sprints on Steriods

»How to solve big problems in a cross functional team with a structured step-by-step-method on lightning speed.«

When it comes to creative problem solving there are a lot of methods, formats and techniques available. User experience, service design and design thinking communities have given us a lot of help to solve problems with the user and the business in mind.But how can we combine the right methods and bring them together in a format that fits the busy business schedule of product development teams? The design sprint method invented by Google employees is one of the best bets for this case. But even the 5-day-schedule of the original design, the sprint is not always tight enough for busy team members.

In this hands-on boot camp, we will have a deep look in to the building blocks of the design sprint process and will conduct a compressed design sprint of one and two half days. Participants must be willing to prepare some upfront work at home (~2 hours) and complete some user research at the conference on the day after the workshop.

We will learn how to understand lean methods around users and their journeys, business problem identification, ideation, prototyping and user research.

After the workshop participants will be able to:

• Understand the role of each phase and the building blocks of the sprint design process
• Pick the right combination of methods for their specific problem
• Conduct a design sprint for their own company

Who should attend:

Every Product Manager, Product Owner, UX Designer, Innovation Manager, Digital Transformation Manager, Head or VP of related business areas that want to learn a structured way to solve their problems. A design sprint and its methods can be used for all types of problems ranging from disruptive innovation challenges to specific UX design problems.
