A case study about how LEGO scaled Design Sprints throughout its organisation
The time has arrived to embrace design sprints.
Since the Sprint book came out in 2016, we’ve run over 200 Design Sprints here at AJ&Smart. We learned a lot about what works and what…
Design Sprints have revealed an expensive waste of time in the modern design process.
A design sprint is a five-day intensive process intended to solve tough business problems using design approaches.
When running virtual Design Sprints (or, really any other kind of workshop), Miro or MURAL* should primarily be used as a presentation tool…
We conducted research with hundreds of people working on agile teams about their experiences in order to understand some of the biggest design problems they encounter. Designers who work in sprints…
A Three-Month Strategy from Design Sprint to Execution
How does Refind curate?
It’s a mix of human and algorithmic curation, following a number of steps:
- We monitor 10k+ sources and 1k+ thought leaders on hundreds of topics—publications, blogs, news sites, newsletters, Substack, Medium, Twitter, etc.
- In addition, our users save links from around the web using our Save buttons and our extensions.
- Our algorithm processes 100k+ new links every day and uses external signals to find the most relevant ones, focusing on timeless pieces.
- Our community of active users gets the most relevant links every day, tailored to their interests. They provide feedback via implicit and explicit signals: open, read, listen, share, mark as read, read later, «More/less like this», etc.
- Our algorithm uses these internal signals to refine the selection.
- In addition, we have expert curators who manually curate niche topics.
The result: lists of the best and most useful articles on hundreds of topics.
How does Refind detect «timeless» pieces?
We focus on pieces with long shelf-lives—not news. We determine «timelessness» via a number of metrics, for example, the consumption pattern of links over time.
