Each Digital Wellbeing Sprint brings together partners in the health and wellbeing sector who have well defined challenges, and student teams who bring their experience and expertise into solving those challenges. All at no cost. If you would like to be involved as partner, read on.
Sprint partners have the opportunity to harness the power of a multidisciplinary team in engaging with a challenge of their choice. The sprint is a great chance to access out-of-the-box thinking and to receive tangible development ideas in a short time. Student teams will participate in a seven day design sprint while following a set methodology in order to uncover user centered insights and produce a service development solution for the partner organizations. The teams participating in the sprint represent a wide range of experience both personal and professional and are able to provide partners with new perspectives and concrete results.
These partner organizations are to provide the student teams with a specific development challenge for the design sprint. In order to gain the full benefits of sprint work, partner representatives are also expected to attend virtually for portions of the day on three days of the sprint. In addition there is one phase of work which is voluntary, but recommended, to attend.
If all this sounds amazing, but you’re unsure, let us help you. We can guide you through the challenge formulation to ensure a positive sprint process for all involved. Contact details are at the end of this post, should you have any questions or queries that the team can help you with.
