Google Design Sprint

Posted in Agile, Customer Experience, Design Thinking, Experience Design, Innovation, and Technology

Google Design Sprint takes the Design Thinking process and compresses the five stages into five days. Developed at Google Ventures, it’s a “greatest hits” of business strategy, innovation, and behavior science.

The idea is that working together in a design sprint, you can shortcut the endless-debate cycle and compress months of time into a single week. Instead of waiting to launch a MVP to understand if an idea is any good, you’ll get clear data from a realistic prototype. The sprint gives you a superpower: You can fast-forward into the future to see your finished product and customer reactions, before making any expensive commitments.

  1. Hi Sean, I’ve been a huge fan of Design Sprints ever since I learned about them from a Google Ventures YouTube video a couple of years back. I’ve tried to promote them among product managers but it really hasn’t caught on with any of my clients. I think what is missing is the strong facilitation skills that are required to make it successful. I would love to talk further about this with you in a future podcast of Portofino Media.
