An introduction to design thinking and rapid prototyping, as given at OpenTech2017 in praise of Jake Knapp's design sprint process.
Ever wanted to build an app or piece of software, but weren't sure where to start or wasted resources and energy on something that didn't succeed? Instead of waiting months to launch a minimal product to understand if an idea is any good, spend 5 days on a design sprint and get clear data from a realistic prototype.
Design sprints give you superpowers. You can fast-forward into the future to see your finished product and customer reactions, before making any expensive commitments.
