Week 2 - Ideate

Thanks for your energy and creativity to get from problems to build decisions. We hope the Lightning Decision Jam helped you in that process. Now is the time to build!

 

Tools, Resources and Guides

As you landed on your build decision yesterday, the next 10 days are crucial in moving toward prototype. Make sure you have:

  1. Defined the actions to get the prototype built.
  2. Defined who is responsible for each action.
  3. Put timelines and touchpoints in place to help maintain momentum.
 
To help you along the way, watch this video from the Design Sprint (day 4) which has useful guidance on prototyping and selecting tools (only 2 mins long).
