Design Sprint 2.0 Bootcamp 2-day facilitation workshop

The workshop is fast-paced, hands-on, time-boxed, and immersive.
In 2 intensive days, you’ll learn and practice different ideation techniques and the best methods to empathize with your customers, e.g. User Story Mapping, Lightning Demos, Sketching, Prototyping and Customer Interviews.

The Design Sprint* gives you a superpower: you can fast-forward into the future to see your finished product and customer reactions, before making an expensive commitment (and/or investments). Working in a Design Sprint format, you can shortcut the endless debate cycle and compress months of time into a few days. Instead of waiting to launch a minimal product to understand if an idea is any good, you’ll get clear data from a very realistic prototype relatively quickly. In other words, Design Sprint is Design Thinking on steroids.
