Design Sprint Bootcamp

Jake Knapp

Wednesday, 05 May, 15:00 – 19:00

In this fun, fast-paced, hands-on workshop, you’ll learn the Design Sprint directly from its inventor and get to experience what it’s like to work in an early stage Silicon Valley startup — at least for one day! Jake will rapidly lead you through a simulated Design Sprint, teaching you how to create a map, sketch solutions, and use structured decision making.

Design Ethics

Mike Monteiro

Wednesday, 05 May, 16:00 – 19:00

Like every other human being on the planet we share, designers are part of the social contract. By choosing to be a designer you are choosing to affect the people who come in contact with your work. Learn how to tell if your work will hurt or help those people and how to measure social impact alongside shareholder value.

Design Your Design Organization

Peter Merholz

Wednesday, 05 May, 15:00 – 19:00

As the move to establish in-house design teams accelerates, it turns out there’s very little common wisdom on what makes for a successful design organization. In this workshop, Peter Merholz draws from his groundbreaking book Org Design for Design Orgs to shine a light on the unsung activities of actually running a design team, the organizational and operational challenges and considerations, and what works and what doesn’t.

Research Together: Make Critical Research Decisions on Evidence, not Speculation

Erika Hall

Wednesday, 05 May, 16:00 – 18:30

Is your team making critical product decisions based on evidence or speculation? Just talking to customers isn’t enough. You need to start with shared goals and a clear process in order to end up with useful insights. Learn all about efficient and value creating user research straight from the author of Just Enough Research and Conversational Design.

Design Sprint Advanced

Jake Knapp

Thursday, 06 May, 15:00 – 19:00

Listening Deeply: Understand People Before Solving Problems

Indi Young

Thursday, 06 May, 16:00 – 18:30

In this workshop Indi will teach you empathic listening skills and how to build self-awareness and humility into the tools you need both as a foundation for understanding users, and to forge strong collaborative relationships with your peers, direct reports, managers, and leadership. She will also introduce the concept of problem space research, and how listening deeply to people without the lens of your product will provide the foundation for your product to grow.
