"Last Thursday we ran a two hour decision jam. Since I have permission and the purpose and client are obscured I thought I’d share the outcome here. I owe so much to the book Sprint and the generosity of AJ&Smart. For the sake of selling this jam we called it a Design Jam. It’s basically the solution sketching part of the full sprint squeezed bet-ween the beginning and ending steps of the decision jam.
The problem, other than the design issue we were tackling, was the slowness of decisions and constant iterations we were building to accommodate their brilliant Chief Marketing Officer. The project was poorly scoped. We warned our client of the problem that they weren’t forecasting how large this project was (we are subcontracting to a development consultancy) and we all prepared for the eventual chaos.
With the right communication and gentle reminders we were able to take advantage of the situation with the full support of our client and the business that hired us. The result was very positive. Thank you AJ&Smart Design Sprint Masterclass, Jonathan, Dee, and Laura for the positive energy you exude, the business value you bring, and dedication to your craft."
