For many businesses, it can take many months or even years to get a product to market using traditional development processes. At Digital Scientists, we’ve found a better, more efficient way called a Design Sprint.
Hundreds of companies have used this innovative method, developed at IDEO and adapted by the Google Ventures team, to transform ideas into working prototypes — in under a week.
Now you can, too, with a Design Sprint workshop with Digital Scientists.
Design Sprint: This is how Google Hangouts was born
How did the Design Sprint get started? Jake Knapp, a design partner at Google Ventures, flew to Sweden one weekend to meet with some of the company’s engineers in hopes of starting work on a new video chat platform. Incredibly, three days later, they had already created a working prototype version of Google Hangouts.
Their secret? The Design Sprint, a new blueprint for designing products and testing prototypes with end users in less than a week.
Accelerate product development and take innovation to the next level
The Design Sprint workshop provides a framework for teams of any size to solve and test design problems in two to five days. Each participant invests about 30 hours of his or her time in this collaborative process.
At the end of five days, you and your team will walk away with a formal design brief, initial product roadmap, a prototype and documented research to apply to developing your first product or pitch to investors. And when you’re ready, we’ll be here to help take your idea to the next stage of product development.
