The promise of a Design Sprint is simple — and valuable. In just five days, you can learn whether an idea is worthwhile or not. Imagine the effort, time and money that you could save by using a Product Design Sprint to find out in one week whether a product, feature or process was really going to work for users. Instead of devoting months of production work to a hypothesis, you can test it immediately and move forward with facts.

The Google Design Sprint process was developed by the company's investment arm, Google Ventures, to quickly assess whether an idea was worthy of their funding. Today, we've used the Design Sprint framework to help companies at all stages of the product development process validate their work and build with confidence.

In this Google Design Sprint Workshop, you'll learn the skills to bring your ideas to life and put them in front of users in one workweek. We'll walk you through each step of the Product Design Sprint Process, from brainstorming, to prototyping, to testing on real users, to synthesizing the results, so you can bring a new level of proof to all of your projects.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Apply design thinking concepts to a business problem
  • Rapidly collaborate with a team to find solutions
  • Familiarity with the Google Design Sprint process
  • Ability to participate in or facilitate a Google Design Sprint
  • Techniques for turning business ideas into concrete problem statements
  • Techniques for facilitating various decision activities
  • Lightweight sketching and prototyping
  • Hands-on experience interviewing users
  • Learn to value and embrace “failing fast”
