The DESIGN SPRINT is successfully used by companies such as AirBnB, Slack, Medium and Google Ventures for rapid product concept ideation and validation. A lot of people talk about design sprints. But also struggle with certain aspects of it: Who belongs on the team? How do I onboard inexperienced product owners quickly? How do I avoid and/or solve difficult situations? How can I adjust the sprint so that the most important participants only have to be there for two days? etc.

Understand how to deal with typical Design Sprint challenges.
Improve your facilitation skills and practice every Design Sprint exercise with experienced trainers.
Become a competent & confident Design Sprint Facilitator!
Wait a second... what's a design sprint?
The design sprint is essentially a 5-day intensive hackathon. We’ve improved the process for the corporate world, so that key stakeholders only need to attend the first two days. While the rest of the team can build and test the prototype and prepare the result presentation.
Monday we define the challenges and the extent of the week. Tuesday is about deciding what challenges the prototype will face. Wednesday and Thursday we prepare the test and create a compelling prototype, that is then tested with real users on Friday.The result after 5 days is a validated concept with real user feedback and a clear definition of the next steps.

What our Facilitator Training looks like
We start the hands-on learning immediately with a closer look at your facilitation skills. And then we move step by step through the Design Sprint starting with the prep work.

Preparing and setting up your Sprint: Know how to create the perfect environment for a successful Sprint .
Defining the problem and aligning your team: Understand how to pinpoint the challenge for a Sprint and get everyone involved on the same page to ensure the best possible outcome.
Creating solutions and empowering non-creative: Harness the creativity of the entire team in a series of targeted exercises to get to a distilled solution concept in no time. Pick up hints and tricks to get everybody in the room to participate.
Day 2
Making decisions in a structured way: Learn how to come to the best decision without discussions and compromises.
Transforming ideas into prototypes and testing them: Get to know hands-on approaches to translate your selected concept into a storyboard. Pick up hacks and hints on prototyping and learn how to run the customer tests.
Managing difficult teams and stakeholders: The tricky part of a Design Sprint is facilitating the team - that’s why you will get easy to implement techniques to use when people in the room are giving you a hard time.Here's what our participants say:

What is the difference between Design Thinking and Design Sprint?
Design Sprints are carried out according to a defined plan. The time constraint of one week serves to achieve optimization using various techniques and methods, including Design Thinking. Design Thinking was developed in 1991 and represents a creative approach to finding new ideas. Design Thinking can take weeks to explore the context around the problem, while a Design Sprint compresses it neatly into a part of one of the Design Sprint days.
Do I need any previous knowledge?
No. However, we recommend to read Design Sprint using either excerpts of the book or web videos.
Does the design sprint only works for designers?
You don't have to be a designer or have read the Design Sprint book to participate. However, if you are a designer or have read the book, you will expand your knowledge through valuable insights into working with the method. In addition, you will learn the enhanced and improved version of the Design Sprint.
What is the difference between Design Sprints and Agile/Scrum?
Scrum, as one of the best known agile frameworks, can be found primarily in the area of software development. Here developers organize their tasks within time-controlled iterations, so-called sprints (usually two weeks). Design sprints are also agile, as a result becomes visible in a short time and a decision can be made. In practice, products or a function are designed, created and tested with the Design Sprint. If it is a software product, the new development or further development then takes place within an agile process.
