Event description

Description

Design sprints are a fast-paced process for co-designing, prototyping and validating new product, service, and business model ideas. The process enables teams to derive actionable insights on major challenges in under a week. Since Jake Knapp outlined GV's design sprint process in Sprint (2016), the method has become a signature offering of product design companies and consultancies internationally. Many of the biggest companies in the world use design sprints as part of their early stage R&D cycle. The model and its applications are rapidly evolving as startups and SMEs become aware of the benefits of the approach.

What is a design sprint? What's the relationship between design sprints and design thinking? When should you run a design sprint, and why? Most importantly, how do you run one, and how do you get the most value out of the experience?

This masterclass offers a practitioner's guide to design sprints, focused on the practical challenges and commercial benefits of the approach. Dr Tim Rayner will walk you through the 4-day design sprint model, explaining the thinking behind each step of the process and how to get the most out of your design sprint team.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • How to know when you're ready to sprint
  • Tips and tricks for running an awesome sprint
  • How to use design sprints to create a collaborative team culture
  • The origins - and potential future - of design sprints
