Behavior Change Design Sprints

While numerous design methods used in industry help designers rapidly brainstorm design ideas, few help them to use theory in the design process.

We present the Behavior Change Design Sprint (BCDS), a design process for applying behavior change theories to the design process and for prototyping behavior change technologies. BCDS facilitates the application of theories into the design process through a series of exercises that help designers identify intervention placement and project behavioral outcomes, conduct more focused ideation, and advocate for their design rationale.
