I took Dana’s workshop on using improv games in design sprints at Google’s #SprintCon and left energized and refreshed. It was one of the best sessions at the conference. Dana has done a lovely job of taking classic, super-fun improv games and linking them to the key moments in a sprint.

The session was full of fun (everyone was laughing out loud) + energy + collaboration and super actionable takeaways. I had never related improv to the different phases of a design sprint, but this deep dive totally opened my mind.

The workshop on improv in design sprints was the best!!! So much fun and so practical. You got us all moving and thinking about group dynamics and creativity in new ways.

Dana and team mindfully created the conditions for knowledge-sharing and community-building while skillfully coaching the group through testing assumptions, learning through the act of making, taking risks, and experimenting.

I gained effective techniques for iterating ideas and soliciting useful feedback, and for exploring notions of belonging. The design sprint was not only well structured and organized, but tailored and customized for the institution and participants.
