"Design Thinking" & "Design Sprints" are creative strategies commonly used by designers that are such hot UXbuzz words these days; yet, these terms are often conflated or misunderstood.In short, theres a lot of crossovers.Design Thinking is methodology that is a lot more than post-its, & Design Sprints is a process that uses design thinking exercises (...and of course post-its!), but might not always be applicable. Confused? Dont be!

Join us as we discuss & explore their exact definitions, the difference between them & how to use them. In addition, we'll talk about the merits & challengesof design sprints, what kind of problems we can solve, & how we can incorporate it to our own workplace.

Learn howto sprint before we run...or in this case, build!
