The 5-Day Design Sprint
The 5-Day Design Sprint is the “gold standard” for accelerating your product strategy. Developed first at Google Ventures, the Design Sprint is a tried-and-true method for answering your most important business challenges.
“I ran a design sprint with Douglas while he was at Twyla and I was at Google Ventures. I’ve seen him in action, and the guy’s awesome — he combines the management, business, and technical depth of a CTO with the design thinking skills of a master facilitator. It’s a combination you just don’t see.”
— Jake Knapp, Google Ventures Design Partner and Author of SPRINT
Design Sprints are designed to:
- Define the right problem.
Gain a deep understanding of your main challenges within context of your business.
- Create a potential solution.
Rapidfire brainstorming produces many exciting, viable ideas. Your team selects one that has the most promise and prototypes it.
- Test to validate the idea.
Validating (or invalidating) your concept increases speed to market and lowers chance of failure
5 Reasons Design Sprints Are Worth the Time & Money
- Accomplish a Month’s Worth of Work in a Week
- Get User Feedback Before It’s Too Late
- Improved Visibility & Alignment for Your Team
- Gain Speed & Momentum for Your Project
- Foster a Culture of Innovation
Why hire a Design Sprint facilitator?

- Have more time focus on being an expert and participant instead of keeping the team on track.
- Expert facilitators help you craft the right agenda, participants, and even workshop materials.
- Facilitators bring relevant experience and skills that can be applied to your challenge. (For example, I’ve been a CTO, lead Product teams and am experienced in software development, product design, and business strategy.)
