It introduces a design-research method that shortens time to insights from months to days. Presumptive Design is a fundamentally agile approach to identifying your audiences' key needs. Offering rapidly crafted artifacts, your teams collaborate with your customers to identify preferred and profitable elements of your desired outcome. Presumptive Design focuses on your users' problem space, informing your business strategy, your project's early stage definition, and your innovation pipeline. Comprising discussions of design theory with case studies and how-to's, the book offers business leadership, management and innovators the benefits of design thinking and user experience in the context of early stage problem definition. Presumptive Design is an advanced technique and quick to use: within days of reading this book, your research and design teams can apply the approach to capture a risk-reduced view of your future.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"...persuasive in documenting how this new method can be a universal source of inspiration...I would recommend it to more seasoned practitioners and likely those in corporate settings; but those working in agencies would benefit from its ability to let one do quick deep dives into a new domain." --User Experience Magazine, Presumptive Design Frishberg and Lambdin have discovered the magic glue that binds design thinking to agile. In Presumptive Design, they boil down the essence of both, mix it all together, and package it up with a bow. The result is a clear, powerful, and brilliantly practical process. Product teams who struggle to balance human-centricity with speed will love this book. - Leah Buley, Author, A UX Team of One This book lays out a passionate, compelling case about a crucial yet under-recognized truth in human-centered work: the acts of "design" and "research" are inextricable. Thanks to this book's ample theoretical frameworks and practical guidelines we can revel in that entanglement, to the benefit of our products, our designs and our users. - Steve Portigal, Author, Interviewing Users: How To Uncover Compelling Insights A handbook for design paratroopers who want to move fast and learn even faster. - Dave Gray, Author, Gamestorming Presumptive Design is a powerful approach that has fundamentally changed my perspective on design research. This is a thoughtful and readable book-a comprehensive resource for practitioners, backed by a wealth of relevant research. Overcome project start inertia, embrace failure, and reach consensus quicker with PrD. - Jim Kalbach, Author, Mapping Experiences and Designing Web Navigation
