Abstract

In Action Design Research projects, researchers often face severe constraints in terms of budget and time within the practical setting. Therefore, we argue that ADR researchers may adopt efficient methods to guide their design strategy. While agile and sprint oriented design approaches are becoming common in the practitioner domain, they have not been integrated yet in Action Design research. In this paper we illustrate how a Design Sprint could jumpstart a design process in an ADR setting, fostering a low-fidelity prototype into a minimal viable product. We do so by describing an extensive case on a health and wellbeing platform for elderly people developed in a Living Lab setting. We extract lessons learned on how to apply design sprints in Action Design Research, which can be reused to guide other situated design projects with limited resources.
