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.
