We ran two sprints with the client, on two different problems. We solved core usability issues, built shared understanding with the team and exceeded stakeholder expectations.
It is an effective and fun process that anyone can follow, not just designers.
I highly recommend reading this book if you have thorny problems to solve and are looking for a reliable and repeatable method for solving them quickly.
