Design Sprints

We facilitate immersive design sprints that focus on real-world problems and result in actionable insights and prototypes.

Design sprints are multi-step, facilitated working sessions that involve exploring and validating concepts with end-users through research and prototyping. A design sprint goes beyond our Design Thinking 101 workshops; we coach you through the application of the process to your real-world problem or project.

Clients in past sprints 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.
