Hi, I'm Teresa Cain, an award winning author, speaker and expert on design sprints and wasn't to introduce you to concept of 2 hour design sprints. Many organizations have based their own design thinking process from Stanford's Design Thinking Method or using Google and Jake Knapp’s 5 Day process from the book “Sprint: How to Solve Big Problems and Test New Ideas in Just Five Days”. However, 5 day design sprints have had its challenges during the Covid-19 pandemic including the ability to conduct a remote design sprint using the same process effectively, loss of productive time and the ability to collaborate with multiple stakeholders in one room.
The adaptation of technology firms to 2 hour design sprints teaches organizations, product managers, researchers and designers how to adapt to a 2 hour process derived from design thinking and design sprint methods to increase the frequency and speed of solving small and medium problems whether virtual or in-person, while still using the 5 day design sprint method to solve large or complex problems.
I spent over 36 months teaching, testing and implementing this concept at organizations and conferences around the world, and released a #1 Bestseller and #1 New Release book in Business Technology Innovation on Amazon called Solving Problems in 2 Hours: How to Brainstorm and Create Solutions with Two Hour Design Sprints on what I learned and how organizations can succeed using shorter design sprint methods.
I created an on-demand training in Udemy for UX researchers, product managers, designers or any organization looking to keep their roadmap on track or get ahead of competitors by using problem solving techniques that allow you to solution and implement features faster. 2 hour design sprints can help teams deliver value driven features to clients faster by simplifying traditional methods. Learn how 2 hour design sprints can help you accelerate your product roadmap today.
