Why Design Sprint? Creating relevant digital products with high retention is very hard. 72 % of all new products and services fail. The key to product success is to validate your ideas with real users as quickly as possible. A Design Sprint is a structured process to create and validate new products, used by companies like Facebook, Google, and McKinsey. The process consists of battle-tested exercises from design thinking, lean startup, and service design – put into a 4-day iteration cycle, ending with 5 user tests. In this hands-on, fun-filled workshop you’ll get an introduction to Design Sprints and learn techniques you can use with your team to generate ideas and solve problems quickly, without useless discussions.
