Day 1 - Overview

Day 1 is typically structured discussions to create a shared path for the sprint week. You can “start at the end” with a long-term goal, map the challenge to determine focus moments, and ask customers/experts about the challenge at hand. By the end of the day you’ll pick a "Target": an ambitious but manageable piece of the problem that you can solve in one week.
