What is a design sprint

We run Design Sprints…

The Design Sprint is a process for testing new ideas, validating products, and solving business problems faster. Originally created by the team at Google Ventures (GV), the Sprint framework was designed to condense the process of defining a problem, creating solutions, and testing with users into just one week.

By bringing together a small team of key stakeholders for this intensive (typically 5-day) period, we democratize the problem-solving process by placing participants on an equal footing, regardless of title, standing, or office politics. The exercises in a Sprint are explicitly designed to minimize the often endless debate and conversation that slows down the traditional group brainstorm.

 

Flexible Sprints to Fit Your Needs

While a sprint is traditionally a 5-day endeavor, we're happy to work with your team to create a schedule that meets your needs and your team's availability. We can work with you to manage a Sprint over 1 to 5 day periods, or split a Sprint up over multiple weeks.

What Our Clients Say:

Danny from Design Sprint Consultants brought together our software engineering team for a week-long Design Sprint. He guided us seamlessly through process of envisioning the future collision of technology and entertainment through the lens of content, AR/VR, and geo-location. In just five days, we solidified a goal, explored a variety of solutions, and ultimately prototyped two potential directions.

His expertise and experience in leading us through the process allowed us to focus on learning quickly, without debate. I can't imagine how long it would have taken us to get to the same point on our own.

Design Sprint Consultants did an outstanding job facilitating our Design Sprint. In this Sprint, our team did a lot of work and came to great conclusions, and overall had a really good experience. Danny played a big part in that. Specifically:

  • The team had many differing and strong  opinions, and Danny was able to keep the team in line and engaged the whole time. 

  • When things moved off track, Danny held the team accountable to getting back on task. That was impressive.

  • Danny guided the team through a different way of doing brainstorming, which they enjoyed. It really helped them shape the decisions and come to a good conclusion.

A successful Design Sprint requires careful planning and a facilitator who has the experience to read the room, improvise, and guide your team through the process.
