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
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

Stay as involved or hands-off as you like. Some of our clients attend daily standup and some check in with us weekly just for demo day.
