Research Sprint

A research sprint is a fast project designed to answer critical business questions through rapid prototyping, usability testing and co-creation labs.

The 3 ways to your speed up design and development:

Rapid Prototyping
You have questions about your current product state. We’ll help you get your answers.
1. Understand
Learn about + define the problem
2. Heuristics
Evaluate against the best practices
3. Guerilla Interviews
Test with a selection of random strangers
4. Translate
Find the themes and challenges
5. Iterate
Prototype the changes and retest
Usability Research
Get quick corrections and validation. Put your prototype in the hands of your target audience, have your answer in 5 days.
1. Recruit
Targeted recruiting provides the best results
2. Usability Testing
Test the critical items in a Lab
3. Themes
Capture the themes, barriers and opportunities
Workshops + Lab
Co-create with your audience, stakeholders and colleagues. The fastest way to move from challenge to implemented solution.
1. Participants
It’s all about who’s in the room: your end user + your team
2. Set the Stage
Fun matters, as do your desired outcomes—we hit both
3. Time Box Activities
Participants sketch + prototype their ideas iteratively
4. Post-Mortem
Task-based meeting to prioritize and push concepts forward

How does the process with Hopscotch Labs work?

This is a collaborative process, so be prepared to be fully immersed in the project! You won’t just speak to us on Monday morning and hear from us again on Friday. The week will require you to be fully immersed in the process, we’ll become one team, working towards the end goal together.
