The Design Sprint

What is a Design Sprint?

Originally developed by Jake Knapp of Google Ventures, the Design Sprint is a "greatest hit" of business strategy, design thinking, and user centered design.

The idea is actually very simple. Accomplish work that can sometimes last for months in just 5 days. This unique methodology allows complex user experience (UX) and user interface (UI) problems to be solved through creative problem solving and prototyping. At the end of the Sprint, we will produce a deliverable of great value: the clickable prototype of your future application.

In 2016 the Design Sprint was already used internally at Google and within cutting edge companies such as Uber, Medium, or Slack.

Nowadays a wide range of Fortune 500 companies and organisations are using Design Sprint to find answers to critical problems or initiate strategical projects or products.  Examples include Apple, Facebook, Google, Amazon IBM, NASA, L'Oreal, Lego, Walmart, Home Depot, KLM, Airbnb, BBC, Le Monde.

Accelerate Lean Design

Lean Design's principles emphasize the rapid construction of a product, to be launched and tested by its users. Feedback will be integrated and version 1.2 of the product will be improved. Although this approach  is excellent and has the merit to increase product's value, such cycles can take time, especially at the coding stage. The Design Sprint takes a very similar idea, but the clickable prototype leapfrogs the code, resulting in significant time savings.
