Description

Half Day Workshop, $299 + GST

Join us for this half day, hands on workshop and see how using Design Sprints can give you a fast path to building winning products.

A Design Sprint is a flexible, user centric, design framework that significantly increases the chances of building products that people want; it’s a “greatest hits” of business strategy, innovation, behavior science, design thinking, and more—packaged into a battle-tested process that any team can use.

Developed by Jake Knapp when at Google Ventures, it has been used by both startups and global brands alike to help drive successful product development.

By using a Design Sprint you can shortcut the endless-debate cycle of a conventional approach and compress months of time into a single week. Instead of waiting to launch a minimal product to understand if an idea is any good, you’ll get clear data from an effective, realistic prototype. As Jake said, ".. a Design Sprint is like having a superpower: with it you can fast-forward into the future to see your finished product and customer reactions, before making any expensive commitments..."

For newcomers to Design Sprints, you’ll see how to discover customer needs and new product ideas, how to validate product hypotheses and how to make key product decisions quicker. If you’re familiar with Design Sprints but are yet to use one, this is a great way to gain initial insights on practical issues such as facilitation, planning and integrating Design Sprints into an overall product development process.
