The art and design of great Design Sprints.

Popularised in the book ‘Sprint’ by Jake Knapp, Design Sprints are a user-centric approach for tackling problems through a structured, collaborative and design-based approach. They're a “greatest hits” of business strategy, innovation, behavior science, design thinking, and more, packaged into a battle-tested process that any team or business can use.

In a design sprint, a core team of innovators sets aside structured time to rapidly work through the entire design process, exploring impactful ideas and testing new solutions to complex problems. Design Sprints can be used for a variety of organizational challenges, from internal process improvements to new product launches, and serve as the backbone for emergent innovation in many leading organisations, from Google to Unilever.

This workshop will guide you through the process of running a design sprint from start to finish, equipping you with the skills and tools you need to lead your team or organisation in implementing the design thinking approach.

🔎 Why is this important?

Design Sprints have fast become an important pillar of many innovation and product development programs. Companies big and small are seeing the power of Design Sprint in combining fast-paced collaboration with a human-centred approach to unlock amazing opportunities and unpack complex challenges.

🙋🏽 Who is this for?

The bootcamp is for designer, leaders, intrapreneurs and business owners looking to explore Design Sprints as a way to creatively tackle critical problems. As we use our own models and tools, even if you have run a Design Sprint before, you will still get something out of the experience.

You’ll take a hands-on approach to explore design sprints, including immersing ourselves in case studies, tools and facilitation activities.

By the end of the bootcamp you will have the right skills, tools and mindsets to run Design Sprints in your organisation.
