Launch Digital Products Faster–with Design Sprints

At Signal UX, we help forward-thinking companies tackle difficult problems and turn big ideas into testable products in just 5 days.

START A SPRINT

Innovate Better & Faster

It’s no longer enough to have a “good traditional business". Disruption is coming industry by industry and change is inevitable. Design Sprints are the fastest way to solve complex business problems with digital products.

Don’t invest months to a year of time, invest a week!

Faster to Market

Gain focus, cut the politics and execute ideas quickly. Compress months of time into just a couple weeks to get innovative products to market, faster.

Reduce Cost & Risk

Validate assumptions and product ideas without risking the expense and time of building and launching digital products.

Tangible Outcomes

Worried about others innovating faster than you? Be competitive by executing quickly with tangible outcomes. No busy time, real results.

Fewer Days, More Results.

We get it, giving up even a week is a big ask. At Signal UX, we only steal 2 days of your team and grind out the other days ourselves so you can get back to your business. We've facilitated dozens of Design Sprints for startups, enterprise and traditional businesses and swear by the effectiveness of our process.

Don’t invest months to a year of time, invest a week!

Pre-Sprint

We understand that your time is valuable and we’d hate to waste it by not knowing enough about your business. Being Sprint ready makes for much more insightful outcomes.

Prior to the sprint we will collect data, schedule user testing and complete extensive stakeholder interviews. Armed with all that info we prepare a Design Sprint Brief with the above info and an outline of our goals. Now, it’s go time.

Mapping & Solution Sketching

Day one starts with structured discussions to set long term goals, and a map to describe the challenges ahead. Finally, an ambitious but manageable part of the problem is chosen—one that can be solved over the course of the sprint.

Solution sketching is all about, you guessed it, generating solutions—collectively but individually. Existing solutions will be reviewed and new or remixed versions will be produced. The team sketches solutions in a multi-step process that emphasizes critical thinking over artistic perfection.

You + US

Decision Making & Storyboarding

Of the stack of solutions developed, the ones that achieve the goals of the sprint will be chosen. Each of them will be critiqued, and the best parts of each solution will be voted on.

The Converge activity is concluded by developing a step-by-step storyboard that will inform the most important milestone in the Design Sprint process—the Prototype.

Us

Prototyping

The Prototype is a where the activities presented the previous three days really come together. The objective is to build a realistic prototype that clearly demonstrates how the goal of the sprint can be reached. The focus of the prototype will be on the customer-facing surface of the product, not worrying about the technical details of how to build it.

Us

User Testing

The Design Sprint concludes with user testing. Validation is necessary to confirm if the solution developed meets the customer needs. It offers insight into the several assumptions made during the building of the prototype in a low-risk and flexible environment. Validation is done using the qualitative method of one-on-one user testing interviews.

Us

Post-Sprint

After the sprint, we will polish your product based on the user testing feedback. You go home with answers and solutions.

After that, you can use your prototype to bring your product into to development, or we can run another design sprint to improve the prototype even more.

Don't Take Our Word For It, Listen to the Survivors.
