Combining Design Thinking and Scrum


M06 (1).gif

In this Morgenbooster we will talk about the two methodologies – and how we combined them - when creating a new website with IDA (The Danish Society of Engineers). Brit Tholander, Product Owner at IDA, and Lisbeth Torp Christensen, Senior UX Designer at 1508, will take you through the case and share their insights.

For a long time, Agile Development has been the go-to methodology when developing new digital solutions – but what Agile doesn’t address is how you design the right solutions. In short, this methodology just gives you the tools to build rapidly and flexible. 

IDA was accustomed to Agile Development and had already identified the gap. When starting a new website project – the new - they decided to try a combination with Design Thinking.

Design Thinking is a solution-driven methodology, centered on understanding user needs, ideate, reframe problems, create prototypes, and test them – in theory, a perfect fit for Agile Development.

IDA asked 1508 to assist with Design Thinking methods and be part of their agile website team to secure the transition. The website is now about to launch, and we want to share the most important learnings from the project – learnings about what worked and what didn’t work.

This Morgenbooster is for Project Managers, Product Owners, Scrum Masters, and everyone else interested in combining the two methodologies. It will be held in Danish.
