A design sprint is a process that solves big problems, in less than a week. Whether it’s a new product, feature or an existing one, a design sprint can get you through potentially months of work in a few days.
Before investing big money and time into an idea for a product or feature, you need to be confident you’re building the right thing. Design sprints are the quickest way to find out if your value proposition is valid.
Design sprints replace uncertain guesswork and months of effort with rapid feedback and progress to de-risk the kick off of your project.
Answer a few questions to find out if a Design Sprint is right for you and what your next steps are.
We run a Design Sprint over 4 days. The first 2 days our teams work together (us and you) to define the challenges, explore solutions and decide what we want to prototype and test. Day 3 we build a rapid, high fidelity prototype ready for testing and day 4 is test day! We take real users through the prototype capturing all findings in a report.
Define the challenges
Create a mass of solutions
Set up user testers and test sessions
Decide on best solutions
Define and storyboard the prototype
Create report of findings with clear next steps
After every Design Sprint we deliver a high fidelity prototype designed to look and feel like a real product tested by real users.
The most valuable outcome of a Design Sprint is the validation (or invalidation) of your assumptions around your project and the confidence in planning your projects next steps. You get a clear yes or no answer to the questions you took into the Design Sprint.
After the sprint, you’ll have a clearer idea of the next steps and be able to make decisions a lot easier. We can then run a second “iteration sprint” to get the prototype closer to being production ready. Or you can use the prototype and findings to get more buy-in for the idea and move towards developing and launching your product.
