Testing what we know in a ‘mini-sprint’

We’ve been busy tying a bow around our Discovery findings and testing a hypothesis over a quickie sprint (think 50m over 100m blue ribbon dash) or ‘mini-sprint’ if you will.

Hypothesise and ‘mini’ approach

For those who are just joining our journey and missed our official “mobilisation update 1”, our overarching goal is to Make effective NSW mobilisation practice visible, accessible, applicable, and iterative.

To start the next phase of our work, we broke our mini-sprint goal into the following:

WE BELIEVE that if we fill the context gap then users will be able to confidently commence an activity within mobilisation.

IF we provide users with contextual guidance for a mobilisation activity THEN they will feel confident finding and using other resources for mobilisation , and being clear on when it is done well / complete

Testing a prototype

The core team (myself, Rich, Ben) created a basic non-interactive prototype in Miro
(yep we’re agile) to provide just enough contextual content to test our hypothesis with 4 different newcomers in the mobilisation space.

We zoomed in on validating 3 things in particular:

Learning goals:

  1. Enough context to start accessing local resources

  2. Users can make better decisions about what to do when

  3. Learning about effective practice improves practice of users

What we found

We tested our prototype against 3 different learning objectives based on if the content would provide users with enough context to confidently move through the mobilisation space.

1 passed

1 failed

1 partially passed

We also learned some things about the prototype itself, some markups below.

What’s next?

We’re kicking off a full Alpha sprint on Monday (the 100m dash) which will include our product team so that we can work together to define our hypothesise further and refine our prototype based on the learnings we synthesised in our mini-sprint.

We have booked in some user testing participants for our kick-off but are keen to connect with as many people in our community as possible.

If you’d like to get involved in any of our rounds of testing or have great examples of resources that you use in the mobilisation space, then we’d love to hear from you!
