All the Sugar and Twice the Caffeine: Applying Design Thinking Within an Agile Transformation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Design Thinking explores the problem space,  Lean UX tests the hypotheses that emerge from Design Thinking, and Agile builds the thing right.  While this is a cutting-edge concept, there are many articles, blogs, and books that discuss these topics.  During this session we will focus on how you can apply Design Thinking methods in your everyday work during a Lean UX and Agile Transformation.

Design Thinking can be used to:
  • Evaluate and prioritize (such as a Lean experiment , or an Agile backlog)
  • Gain consensus in a group (group consensus is one of the biggest challenges in a large enterprise)
  • Visualize a meeting during the meeting (minimizes waste and focus on meeting outcomes)

During this session, we will conduct an interactive, hands-on workshop to demonstrate the Design Thinking methods that we use on a day-to-day basis to cut through the problems we run into in an enterprise environment.

We will start by asking participants to jot down on Post-its questions they have about Lean UX. We will then demonstrate how to:
  • Visualize the conversation
  • Quickly prioritize the themes that emerge during the conversation
  • Generate a large number of ideas to address the themes

Finally, we will show how to communicate the outcome of the workshop instantly with minimal effort.
