Team mantras these days are all about acceleration: Get stuff done. Fail fast. Learn fast. Move fast and break things. Even our methods emphasize the need for speed: Agile. Sprint. Rapid prototyping. While there’s no doubt that traditional design approaches are slow, our rush to move faster doesn't explain why we’re still investing in solutions that don't meet the needs of users or stakeholders.

A lot of effort and uncertainty is involved in getting from “What should we build?” to a viable, feasible, and desirable solution. In this session we’ll explore the concept of innovation governance: a framework for capturing ideas, prioritizing them, and developing solutions that solve user problems. Learn how design thinking, lean, and Agile can be integrated to help you find patterns in the noise, turning insights into low cost experiments. Walk away with ideas for how to test your idea before, during, and after development.
