The Product Design Sprint and Test-Driven Design

The Product Design Sprint and Test-Driven Design

Wednesday, 10:40am - 11:30am

Product Design Sprints, an invention of Google Ventures' design team, are intended to improve the chances of making something people want. We want to turn false confidence into validated confidence before beginning an expensive build. Or, we want to dodge bullets by learning we shouldn't begin the expensive build at all.


This talk details the exercises used in the 5 phases of a Design Sprint: Build, Diverge, Converge, Prototype, and Test.
