Design Sprints: Test new ideas swiftly
“On Monday, the Design Sprint begins with a big challenge, excellent team and not much else. By Friday of the sprint week, you’ve created several promising solutions, chosen the best, built a realistic prototype and tested it with your users.” – Jake Knapp, Creator of the Design Sprint & New York Times Best Selling Author of ‘Sprint’
Do you want to develop a new product or service? Or are you looking to improve an existing product or service? Then a Design Sprint is just what you need. This method allows you to look into the future and learn how your customers respond to new ideas before spending large amounts of time and money. As a product owner or a product manager, you want to ensure that your business idea will work before you invest large sums of money. As the name suggests, a Design Sprint is a quick way to look into the future of your product or service.
The Design Sprint enables you and your team to solve complex problems in 4-5 days using a method based on collaboration, prototyping and user testing. This method designed by Jake Knapp from Google Ventures, is at the crossroads of business strategy, UX design, Design Thinking and lean startup model. It is widely used to launch or improve a project, product or service, you can integrate it as much in agile environments as in other modes of more traditional organizations.
