The Design Sprint is a way to solve critical business questions in only five days using design, prototyping and feedback from real customers. Developed at Google Ventures (GV), it’s a “greatest hits” of business strategy, innovation, behavior science, design thinking, and more. All combined, it’s an intense effort conducted by a small team, where the results will set the direction for a product or service.
On the first day of the Sprint, the team shares insights to get everybody up to speed, and creates a simple user journey.
During Sketch day, the team members work individually to draw up as many detailed solutions as possible.
By Wednesday, you’ll have to narrow down the backlog, make tough decisions and draw a visual storyboard.
You’ll spend Thursday building an entire visual prototype that feels like your product is already there.
On the final day, the prototype is tested by customers, to find out whether your idea actually adds value.
Design Sprints are the fastest way to find out if your value proposition is valid and worth the investment. The key deliverable is a high-fidelity interactive prototype, validated with real users. This tangible representation of your concept looks and feels like a real product. With immediate results and clear insights, the decision-making process becomes a lot easier. So, stop the endless-debate cycle and compress months of time into a single Design Sprint week.
