design sprint

Design Thinking is a collection of processes, methods and tools for creating human-centered products, services, solutions, and experiences. At its heart is a deep connection to the person who'll be experiencing the end product. 

A design sprint (created by Jake Knapp at Google Ventures) is a five-day process for answering critical questions through design, prototyping, and customer testing (whether internal or external). A design dash is an ultra-compact, one-day version of a design sprint.

They are exciting, fast-paced ways to run through a complete pass on an idea so that whole-team learning can occur much faster than it usually does. Once teams have these experiences, we've found that they often want to make such sprints / dashes a regular part of their product development work due to the accelerated creativity, discovery and productivity.

You can run a design sprint on any topic as long as you can gather the right cross-functional team to make rapid, joint progress. With your team, you'll run through five phases...

  1. Empathy mapping: getting to know your customers and building personas.
  2. Problem framing: understanding the 'why' of the sprint, its constraints and your success criteria.
  3. Ideating: generating dozens of ideas before prioritizing solutions.
  4. Prototyping: creating a mockup of the solution.
  5. Validation: testing your concept with customers and gathering feedback.

Lastly, you'll be deciding how to move forward with what you've learned and when / if you'll need to loop back through.

We also offer a one-day design dash for teams who'd like to try a condensed version of the process that focuses most deeply on the problem framing and ideation steps.

The workshop was great because it brought together leaders to use design thinking just like experience designers normally do. It was a great way of exploring the root issues without pre-planning solutions. Loved it.

I really liked everything we did in the workshop. In particular the blueprinting. Lots of fun exercises to keep people engaged. You did a great job especially with changing needs at the last minute. I thoroughly enjoyed the design sprint. It was very productive and well worth it. Thank you!
