Legal Design Sprints

Working together in a sprint, you can shortcut the endless-debate cycle and compress months of time into a single week. Instead of waiting to launch a minimal product to understand if an idea is any good, you'll get clear data from a realistic prototype. You can fast-forward into the future to see your finished product and customer reactions, before making any expensive commitments.
The big idea with the design sprint is to build and test a prototype in just five days. You'll take a small team, clear the schedule for a week, and rapidly progress from problem to tested solution using a proven step-by-step checklist. It's like fast-forwarding into the future so you can see how customers react before you invest all the time and resources of building a real product.

But the design sprint is not just about efficiency. It's also an excellent way to stop the old defaults of office work and replace them with a smarter, more respectful, and more effective way of solving problems that brings out the best contributions of everyone on the team—including the decision-maker—and helps you spend your time on work that really matters.

What our process looks like
From challenge to a tested prototype in only 1 week
Framing the challenge
Monday's structured discussions create a path for the sprint week. In the morning, you'll start at the end and agree to a long-term goal. Next, you'll make a map of the challenge. Finally, you'll pick a target: an ambitious but manageable piece of the problem that you can solve in one week.
MON
Conceptualizing the solution
By Tuesday morning, you and your team will have a stack of solutions. That's great, but it's also a problem. You can't prototype and test them all; you need one solid plan.

In the morning, you'll critique each solution, and decide which ones have the best chance of achieving your long-term goal. Then, in the afternoon, you'll take the winning scenes from your sketches and weave them into a storyboard: a step-by-step plan for your prototype.
TUE
Prototyping
A realistic façade is all you need to test with customers, and here's the best part: by focusing on the customer-facing surface of your product or service, you can finish your prototype in just one day.
WED
Prototyping
On Thursday, we'll make sure everything is ready for Friday's test by confirming the schedule, reviewing and brushing up the prototype, while also writing an interview script. We need answers to confirm or deny our assumptions!
THU
User testing
By Friday, you will have thought things through and end up with a realistic prototype. That alone would make for an impressively productive week. But you'll take it one step further as you interview customers and learn by watching them react to your prototype.

At the end of the day, you'll know how far you have to go, and you'll know just what to do next.
FRI
STOP THINKING & START DOING
Prototyping
It has been proven that design-led companies outperform their competitors. Prototyping plays a vital role in the process of crafting a successful user experience (UX). But for many product teams, prototyping is still one of the most confusing parts of the UX design process.
