Allie Ofisher is a UX Consultant & Certified OOUX Strategist who focuses on information architecture, user research, & of course, OOUX. In this episode of the podcast, Sophia & Allie discuss running an ORCA Sprint for the Church of Latter Day Saints, how best to teach the process to stakeholders who might not have a design background, plus future plans for implementing future ORCA Sprints.
Sophia lays out her findings after successfully rolling out the ORCA Sprint envisioned in episode 033 from last season. She talks about manifesting the ORCA Sprint from concept to deliverable, what worked and what didn't work (and what can probably be skipped) while running the first ORCA Sprint, and why ending Day 2 of the ORCA Sprint with a nav flow is guaranteed to blow people's minds.
During this Happy Hour, we will learn about applying the ORCA process in sprints to gather domain knowledge and start scoping a project from the ground up. Allie will share tips for preparing one yourself — including what went well, what mistakes she made and wants you to avoid, and resources from Notion and Miro to help you conduct your own.
This duplicate-able Notion template gives you a detailed outline for running an ORCA Sprint. The ORCA Sprint framework give you a formula for taking a team through a week of OOUX exercises aligning to the ORCA Process.
In this solo episode of the podcast (and final episode of this season), Sophia talks about a new concept called "The ORCA Sprint." A week-long OOUX journey teams can take to tackle their projects head-on with the methodology of ORCA (tackling objects, relationships, calls-to-action, and attributes).
