Design Sprint

Why wait for months to test an idea, when it can be done in days? Shorten the innovation process and break through endless debates. The one-week design sprint, based on the Google Design Sprint methodology, is the fastest method to identify the biggest problem and test your business idea or feature.

Remote Design sprints

When it is simply not possible to meet in person, it is good to know that design sprints are very well suited to run entirely remote. Still the same powerful tool, but you and your team simply work from different locations. 

Check out our remote design services and find out how we work remotely.

Maximise your innovation speed, reduce go to market time and avoid spending scarce resources on the wrong ideas.

The power of the design sprint

Combining our expertise is key in getting fast results. So we need the content expertise that your company has, the prototyping skills of our UX-designer, and a strict schedule facilitated by our service designer to get going. This combination is guaranteed to bring a fun and productive week.

Within 5 days we’ll pass five battle steps:

      1. Define the problem
      2. Ideate and benchmark
      3. Prototype
      4. Test with users
      5. Learn and iterate

Together we will:

  • uncover the riskiest assumption in your concept;
  • turn your idea into a prototype;
  • test the assumptions and prototype with users.

Design Sprint: a proven method

The time-squeeze ensures fast decision making and a go-do mentality. The user-test day is the ultimate moment to let the customer speak for him or herself. No more decision making based on the opinion of the highest rank in the room. A prototype is the perfect tool to bring the voice of your customer inside your organisation.

We’ve run 80+ Design Sprints across all industries, always tailored to the challenge and team requirements.

When to use a Design Sprint

Are you planning an innovation that has a high impact on the user? Or are you facing a huge investment for a certain feature or innovation? At such moments it is wise to use a design sprint. At the end of the week it is clear whether you should progress with your idea or that you need to pivot.

We often use the Design Sprint as the bridge from Service Design to UX design. After all we are testing the riskiest concepts resulting from the desired customer journey (service design).  The outcomes gives us insights in which ideas are worth your investment, and accordingly how the roadmap needs to be adjusted. From that point on the UX design starts.
