"I can highly recommend the GVDS, it provides a unique opportunity to work on super interesting topics with people around the world."
As the head of product for Doctor Care Anywhere, a telemedicine company in the UK, I was looking for a way to run design sprints remotely. I was also looking for an opportunity to start getting our clinical team involved in this way of working. Cross-functional teams are the key to growth/retention... especially during COVID.
I managed to convince our Head of Mental Strategy to join the Global Virtual Design Sprint and I can say the final outcome was very impressive. Not only did we manage to build a rather good prototype during the GVDS, but we also used our newly acquired knowledge of running design sprints and pretotyping with building out a mental health service for our patients.
