Design Sprint Academy

Design Sprint Academy Design Sprint Training & Facilitation
We are one of the leading design-driven innovation agencies, guiding teams and world-class companies into discovering actionable solutions with impactful outcomes. Based in Berlin and represented in four countries -Canada, India, Australia, Scotland- we helped more than 500 innovators from companies like IMF, Microsoft, Bank of Ireland, Accenture, Adobe, HSBC, BBC etc. discover new ways of working and facilitate change within their organizations.

We started in 2003 as a software development company. We worked on design and software projects for both startups and Fortune 500 companies. For us the process was relatively straightforward and the aim was clear - to make the client happy. As we focused more on the development of web and mobile Apps, we started experiencing projects that were completed to the greatest of customer satisfaction, yet were not received well by their users. We knew that there had to be a better way to build successful digital products. We asked ourselves how can we help our clients validate solutions before pricy product developments? The answer came in the form of design thinking and design sprints. After integrating these principles throughout our company we experienced dramatically better results. Adopting design sprints, changing our internal culture, changing our way of doing things and also bringing it to our clients wasn’t neither simple or easy. We learned by doing and our success empowered us to teach others. We started running workshops presenting these principles, leading us to engagements with an ever increasing number of companies wanting to create and implement innovation practices. With so many companies experiencing gaps between their innovation potential and reality - “what they could do and what they actually do”, we created the Design Sprint Academy. Design Sprint Academy solution oriented programs help companies to adapt to new market developments, adopt new techniques, get tangible results and close the gap fast.

Mission: We teach and empower organizations to find actionable solutions to their business problems.

When you are in the business of creative problem-solving, as we are, building internal capabilities goes hand in hand with creating a culture of innovation. The first step in the process of building an #innovativeculture is self-diagnosis. A good diagnosis starts by acknowledging where you stand today.

How would you describe the innovative culture in your organisation?

Emotional Rollercoaster

What is the emotional rollercoaster? 🎢🎢🎢

It's a tool to empathize with your team and set the right expectations for the #sprint! It helps diagnosing the team's health and level of engagement.

We suggest introducing the emotional rollercoaster before your sprint, to reduce the level of ambiguity, create a safer environment and also win your teams's trust as a #facilitator. If they know what to expect, they'll find a way to adapt.

Also, it is great to implement it during the sprint so you get to know how the group is #feeling or #thinking. This will give you valuable clues 🔍 on how to proceed next, but also help the team gain alignment and #empathize with each other. ✨

On this article by our co-founder Dana Vetan, we learn a bit more about this valuable tool...

Design Sprints vs Design Thinking vs Agile Scrum - What's the difference?

A helicopter view of the main characteristics that differentiate #DesignThinking from #AgileScrum and #DesignSprints in the context of innovation.

#DesignSprints are about the team's capacity to solve big, complex challenges. But what makes an effective #designsprintteam is not necessarily their team members aggregate I.Q or their collective accomplishments.

The key to building successful teams relays in the team members ability to #communicate with one another. And design sprints, if facilitated well, are great at offering that space to speak to every single team member.

The research conducted by Alex "Sandy" Pentland, director of MIT's Human Dynamics Laboratory and the MIT Media Lab Entrepreneurship Program, on high-performing teams inspired our design sprint facilitation style as well as our training ideology. If you want to learn more about Design Sprint Facilitation and build a truly successful team, join us in #Berlin or #London this spring.

How to jump hurdles in a design sprint and run a successful one

You know the #designsprint method by heart, you already facilitated some sprints, or even got extra training on the framework... you probably think that nothing can surprise you anymore. Guess again. All design sprints are different, and new challenges will come your way every time.

We've interviewed one of our favourite innovation teams from @RGAX, specialised in running #LifeDesignSprints, and here's what they have to say about the hurdles of running design sprints.

Design Sprint Training

We found design sprints through our own example of a successful failure.

Our Design Sprint journey started late 2015, before the Google Ventures book ‘Sprint’ was published.

With our strong background in building digital products, we decided to help a new client build their own digital product. Much time passes, and we’re ready to launch the new product only to quickly realize it crashes before we can even get it off the ground. Why? Well, we didn’t invest the time in the beginning to identify the right problem, the right user, and the right market needs. This failure led us to our success – discovering design sprints.

We’ve gained expertise in service, product and vision sprints.

Design Sprint Academy has run sprints all over the world for a variety of companies, from startups to Fortune 500 companies. This includes training Google in San Francisco as well as partnering with InVision to teach Design Sprints as part of their Design Better Workshops series, alongside the likes of Jake Knapp (formally of Google Ventures) and Richard Banfield (Fresh Tilled Soil). And, each time, we noticed the companies were looking for different solutions and outcomes from a design sprint. But no matter the differences in expectations, the overall outcome remains the same – satisfaction from their actionable insights.

We are spreading the knowledge across the globe

Our extensive experience has enabled us to re-engineer the program to create the first and one of the most comprehensive Design Sprint training programs out there. Back in 2016, we ran the first ever design sprint training in the world as well as the first ever Problem Framing workshop at Google. There’s also Design Sprint Experience and Master/Facilitation training.

All of our workshops are offered worldwide by the Design Sprint Academy and our global network of partners in Europe, North America, India and Australia.
