We are aware it is difficult to make time for customer interviews before a sprint, but if one can, this kind of "pre-research" can provide a big head start. It greatly helps if you’re starting from scratch and do not know much about the customer and how they use the product.
We recommend a full sprint. If you compress the schedule, you either wont finish prototyping or testing or the team will have to work crazy hours.
It certainly does. Anything is possible by adopting a prototype mindset. Sprints begin with a big challenge and excellent team - and not much else.
Sometimes a sprint can be followed by an additional sprint to define a new feature set as needed; sometimes more user research or market research is needed to make sure the problem you're solving for your users is the right one, and with the right approach. Subsequent sprints can be used to keep the momentum and build the whole product.
Yes of course! Follow up sprints are exceptions to the 5 day rule since you already have an interactive prototype that is a testable solution on clear insights on where to go next
Members from diverse groups can participate. These include the product team, consultants, business owners, designers and managers.
Yes, we conduct both online/offline sprints. In a remote Design Sprint, additional preparations include setting up tools and communication channels. Remote Design Sprints can be a huge success but only if successfully translated into a format that works well remotely.
Yes. Intelligaia has successfully conducted sprints from startups to large enterprises and for different situations.
No. Hours for remote sprint is less than an offline sprint. We are open to any adjustments in timings according to the suitability of the participants
You are presented with a high fidelity interactive prototype that looks and feels like a real product and is a tested solution with clear insights on where to go next
A “focus group” is ten or more customers discussing ideas together and is difficult to gauge individual feelings. In comparison, Friday’s test features one-on-one-interviews and observation of user reactions.
We suggest a minimum of four to five test users. It is easy to see patterns after five test interviews.
