Moving a project from start to the finish line in a team can be tough. Attention is usually split by multiple projects and meetings often end in open-ended and unstructured discussions. The result: Teams often get stuck in an endless building phase and invest precious time and resources before actually knowing what will work.
One solution to this is the Design Sprint. A solid framework for teams to create, test, and validate solutions. All in under a week. It replaces all open, useless discussions with a clear process to get straight from idea to insights.
The Design Sprint was initially developed at Google Ventures with startups like Uber, Stripe and Nest. But corporates and organisations can benefit the most from this method. The exercises break up a silo mentality and help to strengthen effective teamwork as well as collaboration between departments.
In this hands-on workshop, we will provide you with a full overview of the Design Sprint Process, the history at Google Ventures and the core ideas behind it in a short presentation.
Afterwards, we will jump right into a method that we call "Ideation Dash". The method is based on the Design Sprint and can be used to make quick decisions and generate tangible results in a short time. This is a great chance to get a feeling for the Design Sprint mentality and to learn something that you can directly use in your own company.

Our workshop has been designed for people who are at the beginning of the learing curve. Through a short presentation you'll get an Introduction to Design Sprints and afterwards you'll experience a tangible technique which can revolutionize your daily work.
Both individuals and teams are encouraged to attend. But just to clarify: there will be no loners. Individuals will work together with a team of people from different companies.
