Design Sprint: From Idea to Product in 4 Days

In this four-day, interactive, Design Sprint workshop, you will learn how to fast-forward to the future. You will see your finished product and how the customer responds to it before making any expensive commitments. 

Leap into the future! 

Design Sprint is a proven methodology for solving problems, overcoming challenges, improving products, and creating new ones. It involves designing, prototyping, and testing ideas with users. Developed by Google Ventures, many companies, including Slack, Uber, Airbnb, Dropbox, Facebook, and IDEO, have used design sprints to solve challenges and create new products. 

Discover how you can shortcut the endless debate cycle usually involved with evaluating ideas and compress months into days, by answering questions such as:

  • Are we solving the right problem?
  • Have we verified the solutions? 
  • Are we focusing on what the customer wants?
  • Where do we start, and what will we be doing in the coming months?

Design Sprint: From Idea to Product in 4 Days is perfect for

Product Owners and Managers, Innovation Managers, Corporate Executives, Start-Up Founders, UX/UI Designers, Engineers, and Marketers. You will especially benefit from this workshop, if: 

  • You are starting a new project to define your product or create a shared vision 
  • You want to speed up your development and decision-making process and time is of the essence
  • You are at a roadblock or fork, and your product or team needs to get unstuck
  • You wonder whether an idea is good and want to verify quickly
  • You want a new view on current problems and solutions 
  • You are building a new Agile team and want to make sure they can deliver value quickly and have a validated backlog to start
  • You are ready to take the next step in your product or services 
  • You want to develop new processes, create or update a brand, or define the vision for an organization’s impact in the world
  • You are ready to take your Agile way of working to the next level

What will I learn during this Design Sprint workshop? 

Discover how the four-day design sprint process quickly aligns teams with a shared vision, clearly defined goals, and deliverables.
