Prerequisite Knowledge

You should have basic computer skills and be comfortable navigating online.

  • Day 1: Creating “The Concept”

    You’ll begin by learning what happens on Day 1 of a Design Sprint: How to choose a challenge, and how to propose a solution, called a “Concept.”

    The Concept
  • Day 2: Creating “The Storyboard”

    On Day 2, proposed Concepts get voted on, and a direction is decided upon. You’ll then learn to create a detailed Storyboard for the winning Concept.

    The Storyboard
  • Day 3: Creating “The Prototype”

    To create The Prototype, a Design Sprint team has to delegate tasks, spend time building, and then put the parts together. You’ll learn how to contribute your piece of the puzzle.

    The Prototype
  • Day 4: User Testing!

    Here, you’ll learn how to prepare for user testing, how to actually conduct user testing, and how to summarize user testing feedback in a Summary Report.

    The Summary Report
The sprint gives our startups a superpower. They can fast-forward into the future to see their finished product and customer reactions before making any expensive commitments.

Edmunds G.

Programm was good. First 3 days were very detailed and very explained (sometimes too detailed), but 4th day was different. Seems that technicaly all were OK, but somehow feeling was different. Not customer friendly.

Sascha K.

recommend it 100%

Elisa B.

It was a well prepared and deep learning experience! I enjoyed it a lot and will for sure use the design sprint model often in my Company!

Martin Z.

Very good and clear videos that you could watch again and again, and working on a concrete example, the work and the understanding of what it is very practical brought. I feel safe and can do this independently in another project.

Simona F.
