OK and how can I start doing design sprints? You take the class, which is what they offer on. Yeah, but don't do just yet. Use our affiliate code and have it set up. I can help with that, too. At some point, if you're interested. There you go. Zach, you've done the design. I've run several design sprints. Yeah, beautiful. I mean, you've done the training. I have done the training program with agent smart as well. Yeah, Yeah. So the first baby step is you could read the book Sprint by Jake Knapp, which is where AJ smart basically made their workshop right? Like $15. I also dropped that link later. So you guys gave it your confidence and then talked to zach? Yeah what's the difference between design, sprint and the core? They're very different. They are very, very different for designers only or OK. OK all right. OK, everybody, everybody. Here we go. Hold on. Hold on. Everybody just calm down. Calm down. Calm down. OK, here we go. I'm going to give you guys the hidden link to when Albert came and trained us on how to do design sprints. Don't spend any money. I'm just going to give you guys a link, ok? It'll be attached to this event. So only the people that are smart enough to look inside this event will have the link. It's hidden from public eyes because we said it's going to be out for 48 hours. We took it down in 48 hours, something like that. Some people are smart enough, they save the URL. Some people were dastardly enough and downloaded the video and not encouraging you to do that. But you can't do that. OK that's it. I'll give you the link. It was a two day session, and it gives you a pretty good overview of what a design sprint looks like. Unfortunately for me, I was busy being a participant and making sure everything was good. I didn't even learn as much as I should have if I was just there as a participant. But it's very, very different. And the high level stuff is designed sprints the way that AJ and smart and the way that Jake Knapp talks about it. The facilitator, you actually do very little. The framework is so strong that you just move things around for people. You give them space and they do most of the work. Whereas core, you as a facilitator, you kind of have to be on your toes, you light in, you're on your feet because you're directing and controlling the energy, you're helping to pull out certain ideas and you're also helping to push away certain ideas. You play a much more active role. Design sprints don't do user profiles. They're really about building high performing products and they go fast. Zach, did I get time out right? Can you come by? Yeah, pretty much wherever you are and. Yeah, and the way you work, you can combine them if you don't mind me jumping in. Yeah, I've taken some of the principles from the design spray specifically like the idea of noting and voting, and I'm getting away in the weeds, but taking that concept and bringing it into like core exercises, so you have to do less of the energy. What Chris is talking about, you could kind of let the room guys themselves a little bit more using some of the design spray techniques. OK Yes. So is it anna? I'm not. I'm not. I'm not. I'm not. I'm going to tell you right now as I'm working on flow. I will be combining those two for you, I will find the hybrid version and allow you or teach you how to dial in, depending on your personality. I'm a little timid. I'm not as comfortable in front of people, so we're going to lean a little bit more towards using the group to think for you. Oh, I love doing this stuff. I enjoy the energy and I bring a lot of value. Then you push more towards being the facilitator. Cool OK, so that you're more present. I think it's going to work beautifully. Yes great. Thank you. OK very good. Emily Emily, right? Hey, I'm here. This came across yesterday in Titans group as well. Is there an effective sprint method you've seen to identifying or confirming your niche client to see if they're a good fit? And I'm no expert sprint, so I'm going to let Zach answer that question. Yeah I've never come across a specific scenario where we use the sprint to discover, like in each client is kind of design sprints, really designed more for products or problems or features, rather than like something that's more holistic. I would use core for a question like that, to be honest. Mm-hmm So I just want to let you guys know the reason why I haven't started to build the next version of Kraut out is because I promised myself I'm going to read three books before I can actually go back and evaluate what needs to be fixed and what parts. One is a book on marketing, so I'm going to finish this as marketing by Seth Godin. I have a book called positioning. I'm going to read that to kind of understand what the research is on positioning, and that's probably kind of getting into your thing. And I want to read and do the design sprint myself. So I'm going to read the book, I'm going to watch the class again. I'm going to make sure I know it well enough so I can integrate all the components, so I'll do the work for you. OK OK, who's got another question? I'm going to have to wrap a little bit early today because I got to get out of here, so I have another about 15 minutes. OK demi? I have a Yes or no question, but it's probably for Zach. Do you think that design sprints can be used if the client has a single person team? If this. Thanks next question. Maybe somebody knew somebody that has never said a word on this channel or in this group before anybody. Really? OK. Teen titans, where are you? Hi, guys. Can I ask question? Yes who's speaking? Yeah so I'm new. I'm out there. And can you hear me? Yes yes, Yes. OK, cool. So my question is, can we use design sprint for animation or a film project? Zach yes, Yeah. I think you can. There's story, there's a storyboarding exercise at the end of the sprint that actually would play well into doing something for a film reel, and you could test that as well. OK, Thanks. I will, because we are doing stuff for mobile and web, and I know that sprint would be good for that, but we are mainly on animation and film focused now, so we try to do. Oh, cool. Yeah, I think he could use it for that. As long as there's something that's testable and you get like client results or like stakeholder results or user test results, something like that. Yeah OK, perfect. Thanks I wanted to chime in. This is Matthew speaking. Yes, the I forget who his name is, Chris. He visited us from the UK. He works in the animation industry, and he uses some version of core and design sprint to work with animation teams to quickly test ideas, create storyboards and then validate it through stakeholders. So all the steps are there. And I forget his name, but I will try and edit later, if somebody reminds me in the Facebook group that he interviewed me and I have a video with him on his channel, but I know he does this specifically. Mm-hmm OK, that would be great. Thanks
