If you haven’t used Design Sprints before, this becomes a crash course in how to use them in your organization to solve big problems in just one week by putting together cross-functional Design Sprint groups and create crucial product and marketing innovations and get them validated through testing with real customers.
Design Sprints, or Innovation Sprints as they sometimes are called, is a leading methodology in reducing time to market for new Customer Experience and product development. They are also a key tool to increase the level of innovation in an organization, as well as to speed up the pace of innovation. From identifying a problem on Monday, you deliver new and validated customer value by Friday. Design Sprints are an excellent format for the Agile Release Trains to perform their continuous exploration during the Innovation Iteration. Especially since the method is based upon and thrives in a multi-role setting with built-in ways to handle stakeholder integration within the format.
