Global Product Management Talk is pleased to bring you the next episode of... The Everyday Innovator with host Chad McAllister, PhD. The podcast is all about helping people involved in innovation and managing products become more successful, grow their careers, and STANDOUT from their peers. About the Episode: Have you been part of a Design Thinking or Design Sprint activity? I’ve used both approaches to explore customer problems, consider solutions, and create early prototypes of solutions. They’re great activities. But what happens after creating prototypes? These are intensive experiences, in the 2 to 5-day range. After they are over, what happens? A lot of times, the answer is not much. Creating a project to turn a prototype into a new product takes a lot more work. Our guest knows how to help. Douglas Ferguson is a human-centered technologist with 20+ years of experience. He is president of Voltage Control, an Austin-based workshop agency that specializes in Design Sprints and innovation workshops and formerly worked with Google Ventures. He’ll tell you what to do after the Design Sprint ends.
