Workshop Series: Speeding Up Design Cycles with Design Sprints

03/07/2016 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

nick-wedAgile development practices facilitate rapid and highly collaborative development. However, because Agile practices move so quickly, they leave little time for user experience activities and design work. Nick Mosher will share a technique called “Design Sprints” pioneered by Google Ventures that has helped his teams at the American Academy of Family Physicians embrace agile development practices while also keeping user experience and design standards high.

Design Sprints work especially well with agile practices because they are also highly collaborative in nature. Nick’s presentation will involve collaborative and interactive activities, including design games and roll playing to solve problems.
