DESIGN & DEVELOP

Snapdragon is ready to go with a team of experienced UX designers and engineers. We can start agile development from scratch or use our resources to supplement and boost the team you have.

 

THE VISION WORKSHOP

For Stakeholder Alignment

This 2-hour workshop is the best way we know to kick off a new project. We will gather a team of 5-7 diverse stakeholders and work our way through a series of exercises. 


In this workshop, you'll:

  • Level-set project goals 

  • Define project scope

  • Record hypotheses & assumptions

  • Determine measurable outcomes

  • Resolve alignment issues

  • Co-create an inspiring vision

  • Create a living record to maintain alignment and organization

  • Leave with a template you can use for future projects


This workshop helps guide the entire project, especially research. Plays well with The Research Sprint

THE VISIONARY DESIGN SPRINT

Rapid Prototypes

All you need to develop and test a prototype in under a week. Just bring an open mind, a willing team, and a problem to solve. No special skills or previous experience needed. We'll do the rest. We're experienced facilitators of Google Venture-style design sprints. Our method, The Visionary Design Sprint is a 3-day version of the classic 5-day sprint. We use our own tools to leapfrog to success.

We'll spend 3 days together from 10am to 4:30pm. On day 4, we'll be heads down to set up your prototype and we'll test it on day 5. The following week, we'll present the insights and share highlight clips from testing with recommended next steps. 

The benefits of our method:

  • More fruitful than a retreat or team-building activity -- for about the same price

  • May result in amazing new products and services

  • Outside facilitation reduces bias and hierarchy

  • Less downtime for your team

  • Focus on the creative process

  • Stop stale thinking and unconscious assumptions

  • Start thinking bigger and long-term

  • Outsource busywork, like recreating a prototype sketch in digital form and scheduling participants
