Mozilla wants to innovate and really needs your help: your unique perspectives can bring the diversity we need to innovate. This is a great participation opportunity, you could be helping us defining the areas where Mozilla should focus!
At Dino Tank we want to focus on great problem statements, so instead of pitching an idea and solution, we want you to think about a problem that you experience in your daily life that you think Mozilla should tackle. The strongest, most innovative product solutions come from deeply understanding the problem first.
In the London workweek that takes place in June, we will select the 10 strongest problem statements submitted by both staff and volunteers. If your problem statement is chosen, the Participation team will support you and make sure you are represented in London.
Of those 10 selected problem statements, three will be chosen by our esteemed judges to move on to the “solution” phase where we will convene a cross-functional group in a 5-day Product Design Sprint for each problem area.
The Product Design Sprint is a structured, highly collaborative set of activities where participants hone the product challenge, sketch and prototype solutions, and test with real users in order to short cut long build cycles and learn quickly. The resulting product concepts will be revealed in Hawaii.
Deadline for submission is May 27th,you can find more information here: http://mozilladinotank.tumblr.com/
Let us know if you have questions or if you want help getting crisp on your problem statement on this discourse thread. We also recommend working on small groups to get to a crisp problem statement.
Looking forward to your submissions and the diversity they will bring to the process!
