How to SOLVE big problems and TEST new ideas in just FIVE Days?
What will your idea look like in real life?
Design Sprint is a concept developed by Jake Knapp at Google Ventures.
Entrepreneurs and leaders face big questions every day: What’s the most important place to focus your effort, and how do you start? What will your idea look like in real life? How many meetings and discussions does it take before you can be sure you have the right solution?
If you’re starting a project that will take months or years a sprint makes an excellent kick-off. Here are three challenging situations where sprints can help:
High Stakes: You’re facing a big problem and the solution will require a lot of time and money. It’s as if you’re the captain of a ship. A sprint is your chance to check the navigation charts and steer in the right direction before going full steam ahead.
Not Enough Time: You’re up against a deadline. You need good solutions, fast. As the name suggests, a sprint is built for speed.
Just Plain Stuck: Some important projects are hard to start. Others lose momentum along the way. In these situations, a sprint can be a booster rocket: a fresh approach to problem solving that helps you escape gravity’s clutches.
The design sprint is a five-day process for answering critical business questions through design, prototyping, and testing ideas with customers. Developed at Google Ventures by Jake Knapp it’s a “greatest hits” of business strategy, innovation, behaviour science, design thinking, and more—packaged into a battle-tested process that any team can use.
Working together in a design sprint, you can shortcut the endless-debate cycle and compress months of time into a single week. Instead of waiting to launch a minimal product to understand if an idea is any good, you’ll get clear data from a realistic prototype. The design sprint gives you a superpower: You can fast-forward into the future to see your finished product and customer reactions, before making any expensive commitments.
On day one (Monday), you’ll map out the problem and pick an important place to focus. On day two (Tuesday), you’ll sketch competing solutions on paper. On day three (Wednesday), you’ll make difficult decisions and turn your ideas into a testable hypothesis. On day four (Thursday), you’ll hammer out a high-fidelity prototype. And on day five (Friday), you’ll test it with real live humans.
We have been researching design sprints since reading Jake’s book, Sprint, how to solve big problems and test new ideas in just five days. Now, after attending multiple design sprint workshops run by the author Jack Knapp, we are in the right space to bring this brilliant and unique process to you.
This workshop will help you to:
Getting clear results from customers in just one day which can usually take weeks to plan and execute.
Fast forward into the future to see the finished product and customer reactions.
Validate and build a prototype inside of five days.
