A design sprint is essentially a tool that enables you to stop deliberating and start doing. It combines the best bits of business strategy and innovation into a simple, five-day process – yes, really! – so you can find solutions, fast. It’s like a super-charged brainstorm, resulting in clear goals and effective results.
The process is simple: on the Monday, you make a map of the problem, on the Tuesday everyone sketches solutions, on the Wednesday you decide which solutions are the strongest, before building a realistic prototype on the Thursday and testing with target customers on the Friday. The result? A smarter, more effective way of solving problems. Tah-dah!
