Design Sprints

User feedback on a functioning prototype in only 5 days

The process

Design Sprint solves big problems by letting you test new ideas in just 5 days

Product designer, Jake Knapp, known for his 150+ works with Google and Google Ventures developed the Design Sprint process. Today, this process has proven to be the catalyst to launch or redefine multi-million-dollar products such as Facebook, Slack, Airbnb, and many others

Over a five-day span, a small team of multi-disciplined designers and developers work with experts to develop a product. The Design Sprint includes everything beginning with setting goals, creating a working prototype and collecting user feedback. It’s with this process that we at Skytz Software Labsbring projects to life.

A bird’s eye view of the Design Sprint

Over the course of a week, exercises in Design Thinking are conducted to spur development through alignment based on user experience (UX.) This human-centric process allows designers to understand user interaction capture this in the design. A full day is dedicated to user testing of the prototype to rapidly accelerate feedback-based development.

A Sprint is a 1-week hackathon which includes Design Thinking exercises to ensure alignment and human-centered design. It also includes a whole day of user testing with the prototype, to accelerate learning.

What Are Sprints For?

Costs from switching context, communication barriers and other inefficiencies with exchanges over long development periods stifle the process. A Design Sprint removes these problems and provides a great ROI – teams channel in on the challenge to experience incredible results. By the end of a Sprint, your organization will be well-equipped to breathe life into an idea.
