Course Introduction

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.

You’ve probably heard about Design Sprints – maybe even read Jake Knapp’s “Sprint” book already? Now it is time to participate in one yourself! Our immersive 1 day Design Sprint Masterclass will teach you how to run the 5-day Design Sprint. This isn’t like the typical trainings where you´re sitting down, listening and taking notes. Our masterclass is extremely practical and a lot of fun. We’ll teach you the process by letting you run the exercises with a team and a real-life challenge. In addition, we’ll teach you new methods and hacks that are not in the Sprint book. This will make the process faster and better.

You will discover a new way of designing products, services and businesses based on experimental learning, understanding the context of each sector, exploring the problem and prototyping solutions that will be validated by end users.
