When to do a Design Sprint

Design or improve a product – You need to design a new digital product and want to make sure your users will love it.

Solve a big problem – You need to solve a big problem that has been stuck in the organization for too long.

Test a new idea – You have a great idea and want to test it with real users to learn if it will survive in the real world.

Get organizational buy-in – You need a killer story, tangible prototype and real user data to convince stakeholders to move forward on your idea.

Create a roadmap – You need a clear vision and roadmap for future development of your idea or product.

Get alignment – You need to get people from different parts of the organization to get aligned and work together on a multidisciplinary project or challenge.

Why Design Sprints work

Look through new eyes

Question existing solutions to today’s problems. Are we even solving the right problem?

Observe and involve customers

Get to understand who your customers are, what they need and how they move through the digital world. Create a culture of human-centered design to develop concepts that your customers love.

Think with your hands

Learn more about the limitations and unthought possibilities of your idea by building a prototype. We’ll put it out in the real world and observe how people use it.  This way, you can quickly discern whether it “works” or how people would actually use it.

Tell stories

Use visual storytelling to make a product or idea more relatable to customers and stakeholders. We’ll create a story of how a product came into being and how a customer will use it over time.



Work in a smart team in an inspiring place

Capitalize on interdisciplinary thinking and create a solid support base for your project: team up with people with different backgrounds and expertises within your organization. You’ll encounter the difficulties in specific areas in an earlier stage and tackle them together with the people who know best.
