What we're about

Design Sprint NYC is the official Google Design Sprints Global Chapter community for practitioners and facilitators.

Founded by The SIX, this is a forum for local practitioners to meet, learn and share new skills, and use human-centered design approaches like Design Thinking and Design Sprint to solve big challenges and innovate at scale. Want to learn more how to use Design Sprints to unlock innovation and accelerate how work happens inside your team & organization, find us at www.the-six.co.

This meetup group includes leaders in Innovation and Business Strategy, Product Managers, Design Leads, Dev Leads, Startup Founders, Corporate Execs, UX Designers, Marketers, Innovation Workshop Facilitators, Agile Coaches and those keen to learn more about creative problem-solving.

In our meetups we will help you understand:

• how to run Google-style Design Sprints

• Design Thinking methods

• business model canvases

• how both can feed into an iterative Agile development process

• when and how to use these approaches to solve complex business problems

• real-world case studies that illustrate our integrated approach
