Google Design Sprint - Innovation Workshop: Community Edition
16:45 - 21:00
Imagine if we could solve the world's problems at a local level at the same rate we solve technology problems at a global level? That is the purpose of "The Ladder" - learn Google Design Sprints, while solving real problems for local non-profits and communities. Join our meet-up every Tuesday at Dogpatch, Dublin 7-9pm.
// What you will learn
(The workshop can be joined at any time, but you'll get the most out of it by attending all 5 weeks. If you can't attend see below for online and custom workshops)
In this free interactive workshop, you will learn the skills and methods necessary to plan and execute your own Design Sprint - and be certified - while directly helping non-profits, charities and early start-ups solve critical problems .
We are "The Ladder" - our mission is to solve problems that matter using technology frameworks and people in technology . We'll guide you along the way to ensure you can run your own design sprint a with tips on how you can incorporate these techniques in unique ways within your team and organization. We will cover high-level aspects of the Google Ventures Sprint Method and will lead you through each of the five stages of the process.
This group runs through a full design sprint on building a real product for a non-profit, charity or early stage start-up over 5weeks (each night represents 1 day of a design sprint). You can drop in at any time as each session begins with an overview.
The outcome is that you will be a Design Sprint Practitioner and be able to facilitate design sprints - while doing some real work helping a needy charity or an early stage start-up.
