Design Sprints at Google: UX Methods and Mindset

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

Design matters. Speed matters. Can you have both? At Google, one of our most important tools is the design sprint. A design sprint compresses the typical product design cycle to a week or less. It brings the entire team to create a quantum leap in envisioning a new product or service. To date, we have ran 100+ sprints at Google on projects as diverse as Google Glass, Project Loon, Self-Driving cars, Ads and even our internal tools.
In this talk, Nadya Direkova and Marta Rey-Babarro, a designer and a researcher will join forces to help you run an effective sprint for your own team. The talk will include:
- Key UX methods for enabling sprints.
- How to lead teams in sprints: the art of the Sprint Masters.
- Structure and types of design sprints.
- Case studies from Self Driving cars, Project Loon, Ads and internal tools.
