A design sprint is a framework that helps teams align on a problem, generate many ideas, and test those ideas in a very quick period of time (usually 3-5 days).

The process can turn the normally individualistic working style into a collaborative team effort by making the design process much more inclusive. And if done right, it can put design (and designers) at the strategic table instead of a requirement afterthought.

In this workshop we will cover:

Part 1

-How to identify the right problem to solve with a sprint.
-How to sell it to the organization and team.
-What to do before the sprint starts. (Team alignment and scheduling)
-Tips for facilitating.
-Rapid design and prototyping tips.
-What to do post-sprint to keep the momentum going throughout development.

Part 2

The second part will be helping you identify your own project that would fit for a design sprint.
