Customizing the Google Design Sprint


The Design Sprint is a proven methodology for solving problems through designing, prototyping, and testing ideas with users. Design Sprints quickly align teams under a shared vision with clearly defined goals and deliverables. Ultimately, it is a certified tool set for developing a hypothesis, prototyping an idea, and testing it rapidly with as little investment as possible in as real an environment as possible. You will greatly benefit from this workshop and see immediate results in your team, organization and can be applied in almost any area of work including personal goals.
