Google Opus

Teaching and facilitating the design sprint process for the Google Opus team

The challenge

The team running the Google Opus project wanted to create the world's most streamlined project management tool and sought out our help. They aimed to transform both business processes and software systems with a new product suite that would make work more efficient and agile.

What we did

Through a design sprint, the Google Opus team was able to define a clear vision and developed a brief outlining the goals, logistics, team, and schedule to transform business processes and software systems with the new Opus product suite. ‍

The goal of the sprint was to find innovative ways to improve reliability, accuracy, and speed in meeting teamwork order goals and boost overall happiness and productivity for operation teams.

Rootstrap researched existing Opus requirements, personas, and data center software tools before the sprint and then used lightning talks to understand existing tools' product goals and design evolution.

They also identified the path of each persona from start to end goal and provided ideas for reducing friction and improving the user experience by mapping out all main persona user journeys.
