Event Description

New York Bestseller Sprint by Jake Knapp’s, explores how companies and teams can replicate Google’s sprint process to solve a problem within five days.Design sprints are becoming more widely used within product development for both large enterprises and startups.

So how does a design sprint actually work, and how can you use a sprint to devise effective solutions in such a short period of time? 

At our workshop, An Introduction to Design Sprints, we’ll explore:

  • Background to the development of design sprints: how did Google do it?
  • The benefits of running a design sprint
  • When you should and shouldn’t run a design sprint
  • A checklist on how to position and sell the concept and benefits of design sprints to your team
