You may have heard the phrase ‘design thinking’ tossed around a lot these days. Are you still wondering what it is or how it works? Design thinking is an established set of iterative principles that we’ve integrated as part of our DNA. These methods include empathizing with the user(s), defining the problem to solve, ideating on solutions, prototyping, and testing one of those solutions. UpTop Health is uniquely equipped for design thinking. Through our collective work we bring an outside-in perspective and diverse experiences across many industries and problem areas.
We have developed the Design Sprint and UX Strategy Sprint to help our clients uncover insights and get their projects off the ground. While the approaches differ in length and depth, both are inspired by the design thinking process, uncovering insights, identifying opportunities, and ideating solutions while building alignment along the way.
If you’re tasked with solving a defined problem but you’re not sure where to begin, our 5 day Design Sprint is a great way to ideate and test solutions quickly.
If a problem is large, ambiguous, and there is little research done, our ~10 week UX Strategy Sprint provides alignment and a roadmap to reach your North Star vision.
