2. How do design sprint retrospectives help a team address areas for improvement?
- Retrospectives provide the opportunity to retry a design sprint and start tasks from scratch.
- Retrospectives identify the most efficient team members and assign them management roles.
- Retrospectives pinpoint the team members who did not sufficiently complete their tasks.
- Retrospectives ensure the team has sufficient resources and tools to do better next time.
4. A design sprint is important because:
- Design sprints allow stakeholders to tell you their needs so that you can design solutions for them.
- Design sprints are an effective, time-saving method that focuses on users to define the solution to a problem.
- Design sprints allow you to determine what worked well and what went wrong during a sprint cycle.
5. What’s the best way to plan a design sprint?
- Review or engage in user research, talk with experts, find a common space, create the necessary pace in order to meet our goals in the most efficient way possible.
- Listen to stakeholders and look at competitors, to avoid mistakes and build a better product.
- Set who will work on what and when are the key goals of sprint planning. Only by knowing what we are doing and when it is due, can we be successful.
8. Can design sprints help teams validate ideas and solve critical design challenges?
- Yes. In design sprints teams can validate ideas, and solve design challenges, through prototyping and testing ideas with customers.
- No. In design sprints teams can either solve critical design challenges or validate ideas, but not both.
- Sometimes. In design sprints teams can test and iterate on existing design solutions, but may not have enough time to solve immediate design challenges.
