Attendees will learn to build a user’s journey diagram, map assumptions, identify the prototype's requirements, define what to prototype and ways to do so effectively.
Prototyping is an essential step in the innovation process, as it allows to face concepts with reality and refine what solutions should be. It is crucial for success. In fact, it serves as hard proof that an idea will or won’t work.
Prototyping can save precious resources, reveal assumptions, and biases you have about your ideas, uncover new insights about your users and inspire your stakeholders.
The good news is that it can also be fun!
UNLEASH and Miro invite you to an engaging virtual workshop on quick prototyping to easily make your ideas tangible and testable. Prototyping is about “learning by doing,” and so will this Miro workshop be! Don’t forget to bring your creative-self!
One last thing: You do not want to miss this workshop if you are all about social and environmental impact!
The workshop will be based on globally recognized methodology and present the UNLEASH Community, a leading social entrepreneurs network.
