Design Sprints

What is a Design Sprint?

A Design Sprint is a 4 day process used to solve large complex problems. You can think of it as a tactical way to implement the Design Thinking philosophy. It can help your team with alignment, stakeholder engagement, and decision making.

A sprint team usually consists of 5-8 people and should have a representative from each of the key groups for your projects. For software product companies, this usually consists of people from Design, Engineering, Product, and Customer Success.

How do I learn more about Design Sprints?

I’ve put together some resources that can help you learn more about Design Sprints. Being a certified Design Sprint Moderator (shoutout to AJ&Smart’s Masterclass), I give talks and hold workshops to educate teams on how to run their own Design Sprints.
