Extreme Digital and SD4Good organised a two-day forum in Budapest for digital transformation experts on 6-7 June. The Shop Experience Design Sprint focused on finding new ways, business models and opportunities that can contribute to offering a better shopping experience and developing new services for the customers of Extreme Digital.

György Káli

György Káli, founder of SD4Good wants to reform passive, traditional type conferences with design sprints. He told that by using this method, companies can get to know how consumers think, and understand what makes a brand or product relevant to them; this would lead to understanding what makes a real customers experience.
