What’s a Design Sprint?
The Design Sprint is a proven methodology for solving problems through designing, prototyping, and testing ideas with users. Design Sprints quickly align teams under a shared vision with clearly defined goals and deliverables. Ultimately, it is a tool for developing a hypothesis, prototyping an idea, and testing it rapidly with as little investment as possible in as real an environment as possible.
This full-day workshop will arm you with the knowledge to plan and run effective design sprints within your organization from startups to enterprise orgs. You will learn how to accelerate collaboration and enable effective ways of working together on problems that matter the most. You will gain the confidence to facilitate sessions and be able to experiment with the format (5 day, 4 day, 3 day,..).
If that is still not compelling, here is a list of some of the organizations that are utilizing and find value in design sprints: Google, Netflix, KLM, British Museum, RBC, KLM, Prudential, Slack, Airbnb,...
