Have you heard about Design Sprints? Since the Google Ventures Sprint book came out in 2016, Design Sprints have been adopted globally by companies as a tool for innovation and problem-solving. A design sprint is a design thinking method used to solve complex problems through both individual and collective creativity exercises, rapid prototyping, and qualitative testing with targeted users.
Makes you think only about software and product development? Think twice! Even if in its early stages it was used mainly in the digital industry, it turned to be a great inovation tool for proceses and services as well, in industries such as High Tech, Banking, Pharmaceuticals to Robotics.
In 2019 AIMS Timisoara ( https://aimsinternational.com/company/aims-romania/ ) has become the exclusive partner for Romania of Design Sprint Academy Berlin ( https://designsprint.academy/ . The journey of the Design Sprint Academy with the method started even before the book came out, and since then, they have run sprints all over the world with every kind of company, from startups to large organisations.
This group aims to share our lessons learnt with Design Sprints, including all the improvements the Design Sprint Academy has made to the original process presented in the book.
1. Intro to Design Sprints. Types of Design Sprints: Product vs. Service
2.Experience Designs Sprints. We will choose a topic that everyone can easily relate to and will be running mini design sprint activities.
