Design Sprints

Design Sprints

Our design sprints help your team solve pressing problems, answer timely questions, and align around solutions.

What are design sprints?

A design sprint is a methodology and process for solving complex problems through designing, prototyping, and testing ideas with users. Design sprints are time-boxed, collaborative efforts that combine methods and best practices from design thinking, business strategy, and innovation management to quickly align teams around a shared vision and clearly defined deliverables.

Originally developed at GV, a spin-off of Google, the process was codified in the Sprint book, and has since been expanded and refined upon by teams at Google and other organizations.

What makes our sprints different?

We incorporate tools and methods from improv into our sprints. The type of improv that we leverage has been described as “radical cooperation in action,” and is an incredibly powerful tool for building productive, creative, and collaborative teams.

Whether you work for a large, established institution or a scrappy start-up, it’s likely that you and your colleagues will need to adapt, communicate, and collaborate in order to run a successful design sprint. The improv that we incorporate in our sprints gives you the skills to do this effectively.

Clients in past sprints with us have tackled everything from refining and improving existing offerings to developing entirely new products or programs.

Offered as 2, 3, 4, and 5 day sessions.
