The Sprint process is used in various industries ranging from large corporations to retail, to quickly obtain and test solutions to problems. The Sprint is a methodology developed by Jake Knapp, John Zeratsky, and Braden Kowitz, partners at Google Ventures. Your goal is to solve a critical challenge by designing, prototyping, and testing ideas with users. The process includes five phases: understand, devise, decide, create prototypes and test, which are distributed in 5 working days of 8 hours each. Sprint teams are generally comprised of seven individuals a facilitator, decision maker, finance expert, marketing professional, customer expert, technology or logistics specialist, and a designer.

 

At the time of starting the project, all the individuals identified as key resources must be present. The first day seeks to understand, that is, to identify what situation ails the user or client and to know the perspective of experts regarding the problem to be solved. At the end of day one, a map of the situation should be possessed, and a goal determined. On the second day, the brainstorming process is carried out, devising possible solutions. On the third day, the morning is used to decide the best option to develop and in the afternoon sketches of what the solution should look like are created, which will be digitized or implemented on the fourth day, during the prototyping phase. Prototypes can range from taking a survey sheet to creating a functional digital design for a mobile app. Once the prototype is finished, tests are carried out with users, collecting the impressions of at least five individuals, and reaching conclusions about the project.

 

By applying the Sprint advantages are obtained such as:

  • Possibility of focusing on the user- Because it allows participants to study the perspectives of clients and experts in the field, in addition to analyzing statisticians, to determine what will be the solution that will meet the needs, interests and expectations of the user. final user.
  • Value different points of view- From day one, professionals from all areas of the organization are included, who propose solutions from their preparation area, which causes a varied flow of solutions.
  • Concentration- All the resources assigned to the project are dedicated solely to this during a period of five days, avoiding distractions for other matters. Each resource manages the delegation of its tasks to other members of the organization.
  • Risk reduction- Implementing the model allows ideas to be discarded or approved in a short period of time, without entering major development processes, generating economic savings.

Currently at TeleMedik we have integrated the Sprint model as part of the innovation strategies for this year, resulting in the development of proposals for improvements and / or creation for our health and safety applications, Healthy Encounter and Dr. Security.
