The Design Sprint is a flexible framework for starting new product design and development work.
The Design Sprint is the first, and for some projects the most significant, phase of a design thinking process. It gets the entire product design and development team on the same page, reduces the risk of downstream mistakes, and generates vision-lead goals for the team to measure their success.
In this webcast, you'll learn both why and how Design Sprints work and how you can use Design Sprints to enhance your own design process.
