Episode Info:

The Alberta Health Services Design Lab, founded in 2016, believes that the biggest opportunities to transform healthcare lie not within strategies or processes, but mindsets. People working within Alberta Health Services come to this team with complicated problems that have no clear solution and sit squarely in the grey zone of right and wrong. The lab uses design thinking to kick start meaningful discussions, breathe life into structures with human-centred design and develop co-designed solutions to capture hearts.

In this episode, we talked about design sprints with two dynamic team members of the Alberta Health Services Design Lab, Marlies van Dijk and Ali Abid. We discussed:

  • What design sprints are and where the inspiration for sprints came from;
  • Why and how the design lab team applies the design sprint process to health care;
  • What happens--and what can be learned--when things don’t go as planned; and
  • Some favourite moments during sprints.
