Day 77 — Sprint 10 Retrospective

Wrapping up this week’s design sprint

Today I wrapped up a week’s worth of designing, building, and testing. I’m extremely happy with how this week went and especially proud to have gotten in front of 5 new users in 5 days. This week’s model is something I would like to build into a regular cadence so that we can continue to inject ideas from real users.

Here’s how this sprint went.

🎥 Highlights of the Week

💡What I Learned

  • Young adults like achievements and the feeling of progress toward a goal (ok, maybe we all do…).
  • Having a deadline to test product with users is an amazing forcing function to making quick decisions.

👍 What Went Well

  • Using Figma as a prototyping tool worked surprisingly well. It’s not ideal for video delivery but for quick iteration and even animations, the tool is incredible.
  • Feedback on our concepts was overall extremely positive. We also received some great ideas to build from.

👎 Opportunities to Improve

⏭️ Action Items

  • Test out content delivery on social media (vs. waiting until app is launched).
  • Make prototype improvements based on feedback.
  • Do user testing at a 2-week cadence (i.e., 10 user tests / month).
