About the workshop

In this fun, fast-paced, hands-on workshop, you'll learn the Design Sprint directly from its creator. Jake will rapidly lead you through the process, teaching how the various steps fit together and why and how they work. You'll get tips and tricks beyond the Sprint book, and you'll learn how to incorporate these techniques into normal meetings. Jake will give your team a new way of looking at business challenges and the confidence to approach those challenges with renewed energy and optimism.
Over the course of a single day, Jake will lead the group through a compressed design sprint focused on a sample challenge.

You'll laugh. You'll high five. You'll learn ridiculously useful skills.

Learn how to:

  • Lead a team through the Design Sprint process with confidence
  • Map out a challenge and choose the most important place to start
  • Identify crucial business and product questions to be answered in your sprint
  • Sketch a solution with confidence, even if you're not a designer
  • Make smart decisions without lengthy discussion
  • Choose the right prototyping method for your product or service
  • Test hypotheses before you invest months of work and millions of dollars
