What is a Design Sprint?

A Design Sprint is a 4-day process for rapidly solving big challenges, creating new products, or improving existing ones. It allows for cross-functional teams to work together in short intense bursts and we have found it the most effective way to achieve results in the shortest possible time..


A Design Sprint will:

 - Reduce time to market by quickly testing new ideas and validating assumptions upfront.

 - Increase collaboration by breaking down functional silos, reducing handoff delays and getting part time teams making progress.

 - Upskill teams in new ways of work resulting in improved performance.
