THE GOOGLE DESIGN SPRINT

What is a design sprint?

The design sprint is a user experience design workshop, invented at Google Ventures and now used by the most innovative companies in the world. In a few days, in creative environment, people build and test prototype with real customers.

Whom is the design sprint for?

To survive and grow, companies must innovate continuously. Design Sprint is primarily about testing risky ideas and solving the challenges of digital innovation. Design Sprint are usually praised by innovation managers, product owners and founders.

Why does it work?

Pragmatic and efficient, the design sprint revolutionizes the way cross functional teams collaborate. Design sprint can condense months of work, in just a few days. Test the potential of your concept without investing in a code.

SPRINT: 90 SECONDS INTRO

PRODUCT PROTOTYPING DAY BY DAY

Day 0 – set the stage

Before starting a sprint, you need to choose a big challenge, pick a decider, recruit a sprint team, pick facilitator, book a room and calendars. We offer certified facilitators to lead all the preparations and the sprint itself. Our facilitators have extensive experience in engaging people to creative work.

Day 1 – understand

The first day of Design Sprint is dedicated to understanding the project. People use “How Might We” (HMW) method to build understanding. “How might we help our users find the page what they’re looking for?” The HMW is very useful because each sentence helps put sprint team in the right mindset.

Day 2 – sketch

Each participant individually sketch their own interpretation of the future product. This brings more interesting solutions to the table. People explore and design different ways of tackling the user’s problem. Next, each team member presents the idea. Finally, team votes and remove sketches that are not feasible.

Day 3 – decide

This is very important day for the rest of the sprint. Team decided what are they going to prototype. There are many ways that can help reach a consensus, our facilitator will pick the best one for given team dynamics. The team will weight the risk against reward.

Day 4 – prototype

One day to convert concept into testable prototype. Use tools that are rough, fast and flexible. Think critically about what you will build to get the feedback you need to validate your hypothesis. Our facilitator assigns people to different roles: creators, writers, designers, testers.

Day 5 – validate

Testers show the prototype to real users outside the team, and gather feedback. Next the design sprint team reviews the findings and discuss next steps. Sprint should have an action list of learning that fuel your product development efforts.
