“The sprint is a process for answering critical business questions through design, prototyping, and testing ideas with customers. Developed at Google Ventures, it’s a “greatest hits” of business strategy, innovation, behavior science, Design Thinking, and more—packaged into a battle-tested process that any team can use.” – Google Ventures
About the Session:
Great ideas are everywhere. But the path to success is uncertain, even with the greatest ideas. Many traditional companies spend months to develop a solution, to only then find out that customers do not respond to their product. What a waste!
A Design Sprint helps you to save your precious time, energy and resources, by jumping into the future. The Sprint process, developed and embraced by Google Ventures, shrinks what is normally a months-long development cycle, into five intensive days.
In this 5-day session, participants will learn the tools & techniques of the Design Sprint to come up with innovative solutions to their problem statements, know how to set a meaningful challenge for a successful Design Sprint, and will be given an immersive training on how to plan and successfully run a Design Sprint.
