Personally, when I first read about Google Ventures’ design sprints, I was excited and suspicious. I was brainwashed at Accenture to believe project plans always required months of requirements gathering and spec writing before a single discussion could take place about product design. How on Earth, then, could anything practical be accomplished in 5 days?!
The obvious truth is, looks do not and never will, make the man or woman. So what if he (or she) looks “perfect?” If there’s nothing underneath all that perfection, you might as well be 12-years old, sitting on the edge of your bed asking your Teen Beat centerfold of Keanu Reeves if he likes your new perm.
