Get out there earlier and test your ideas.We discuss the Design Sprint, the ultimate hybrid of thinking and doing, and how Matt learnt the importance of getting practical while baking sourdough during lockdown.  You do not want to miss the knowledge bombs within. Get this in your ears, pronto.   —————————Links from the show:—————————• Malcolm Gladwell - Blinkhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blink:_The_Power_of_Thinking_Without_Thinking• Tim Brown - Change by design https://www.amazon.co.uk/Change-Design-Transforms-Organizations-Innovation/dp/0061766089• Ed Catmull - Creativity inchttps://www.amazon.co.uk/Creativity-Inc-Overcoming-Unseen-Inspiration/dp/0593070097• Design sprints with Packhttps://www.ridewiththepack.com/design-sprints/—————————  Find us here: https://www.ridewiththepack.com/Get in touch with us here:bettertogether@ridewiththepack.com& please don’t forget to subscribe and spread the word.Peace.X—————————Founders of Pack and UX and UI industry veterans, John, Matt and Dom are on a mission to help product teams design better digital products and services, fast! Expect insights into digital product design, innovation, design thinking, design doing and productivity, interlaced with obscure 80’s film references, sourdough-baking tips from Matt and loads more mind-blowing stuff!—————————  Original music used in this podcast © Resting State by HOME:  https://home96.bandcamp.com/releases  Under the creative commons 3.0 license:  https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/
