Developed first at Google Ventures, the Design Sprint is a tried-and-true method for answering your most important business challenges.
Design Sprints are a 5-day process for align team members and key stakeholders behind solving a problem, then rapidly prototyping and testing a potential solution. Each day has well-defined exercises selected to focus the team on a specific outcome. Testing ideas quickly in 5 days prevents you from getting emotionally attached to your ideas. This is critical, because, as David Aycan points out, even when we know testing and validating is important, “It’s hard to acknowledge the faults in your baby when you’ve been invested for weeks or months.” — Fast Company
