Description


Be part of a Sprint Team

Design Sprint has been a hot topic for quite some time now. A Great tool given to us by tech giant Google. There is a lot of on-line content available, but limited space to participate in a live Design Sprint environment, working on real projects. How will you learn if you have never participated in an actual Sprint?

This is what you will experience through this 5day workshop, actual participation and collaboration with a team of people on a real challenge.

What is a Design Sprint?

In a nutshell. A 4-5day team collaboration, to test and validate a new innovative Idea/product, before allocating valuable resources such as time, people and money.

The course is not an introduction to Design Sprint. The Theory can be found in a book, the true test, is being able to deliver a Design Sprint. Managing a team of diverse personalities and using the discipline of the Sprint methodology to have a productive session with a real outcome.

This session will provide a safe testing ground and allow you to experience the methodology 1st hand.

How prepared should I be?

Know the basics. Some homework, you can easily find through a Google search.
