The design project tapped over 40 people from the Air Force, joint cyber protection team members, CSI pathfinder units, as well as industry partners.
Participants held a Q&A session with the former CTO of Google as part of the design research phase. Key insights from industry leaders helped shape the team’s design effort.
The design sprint participants spent significant time developing personas (users) who would have existing stories within the #FMA4CSI framework and whose stories could be improved through proposed advances. Teams identified four key themes, divided into two groups based on current issues and future sustainment needs:
- Solving current issues our CSI pathfinders are facing
- Creating future CSI/FMA Leaders
