July 3 Firecat First Friday: Design Sprints

With a design sprint, you leverage the great ideas and energy of your team to build and test and prototype a new idea in as little as 4 days. The way the Firecats run a sprint, clients emerge with tons of great progress and a team that’s aligned and bought into the plan.

In this fast-paced hour-long session, Susan and Tom will cover what design sprints are all about, why they’ve become popular, when they’re the right next step, who should be included, and exactly what clients get out of that 4-day sprint. We’ll also share some of the techniques we’re using to pivot from in-person workshop format to all-remote delivery.
