Day 2 - Overview

Day 1 is about understanding the problem and choosing a Target for your Sprint. On Day 2, you finally get to move to solution ideas! The day starts with inspiration and looking at who else in the world has solved similar problems well. Then, in the afternoon, each person will “sketch” concept ideas, utilizing critical thinking over artistry. You’ll also begin preparing for Friday’s customer test.
