About this Event

Through the process of Problem Framing, Design Sprint 3.0 and Design Sprint Facilitation training you will gain the right set of tools and skills to run successful Design Sprints.

What is a Design Sprint?

A design sprint is a method used for solving problems through ideation, prototyping, and testing ideas with specifically targeted customers.

It was developed at Google, to align teams under a shared vision with clearly defined goals and deliverables. After much success, design sprints are now being adopted by companies, big or small, and from all over the world and within all different industries – from insurance and banking to robotics or entertainment.

How it works

With a small team and a clear schedule for the week, you’ll rapidly progress from problem to tested solution. On Monday, you create a map of the problem. On Tuesday, everyone sketches. Then, on Wednesday, you decide which sketches are the strongest. On Thursday, you build a realistic prototype. And finally, on Friday, you test that prototype with five target customers.

Design Sprint Academy’s experience has enabled them to design an original end-to-end Design Sprint training that will take you from zero to a Design Sprint Facilitator in just five days.
