Global Goals Jam Structure
For the Global Goals Jam, we knew that the different locations would have very different levels of experience using Design Thinking. At the same time we knew that locations would have different facilities, different access to resources, different time frames and different amounts of participants.
Because of that we decided to simplify the process as much as possible and split the process into 4 sprints. Each sprint would focus on a specific part of the design process, and each sprint would have methods that we recommended each location should use.
The process was split into four sprints.
Sprint 1 focused on empathising and gaining understanding of the challenge the team would be tackling.
Sprint 2 aimed to structure the insights gained and defining the requirements and constrains in which the challenge is placed.
Sprint 3 tackled ideating concepts and figuring out which of these would help the users in their situation in the best way possible.
Sprint 4 took everything that they had learned and brought it together to build a prototype. We encouraged the teams to test these prototypes amongst other teams but since time was extremely limited, it was decided to not focus on testing too much.
