  • How many meetings and discussions does it take before you can be sure you have the right solution?
  • What’s the most important place to focus your effort, and how do you start?
  • What will your idea look like in real life?

Product Managers and Product Designers face big questions every day. Now there’s a surefire way to answer these important questions; the SPRINT. Jake Knapp created the five-day process at Google, where sprints were used on everything from Google Search to Google X.

Think of Design Sprints as a ‘recipe’ where Design Thinking is the cookbook. Developed at GV, it’s a “greatest hits” of innovation, behavioural science, design thinking, and more—packaged into a battle-tested process that any team can use. This is a Game Changer for your company. Learn how to facilitate an internal Design Sprint.

LEAN DISRUPTOR team, trained by Jake Knapp, will run a one-day Facilitator workshop on Jake Knapp’s SPRINT process.

“The Design Sprint workshop with Rohan and Raomal was really excellent. The hands-on approach to learning and obvious passion for the subject shine through the whole day. I look forward to applying my this new technique and running our first sprint in MoneyMate” – Ronan Brennan, CTO, MoneyMate

“The Design Sprint workshop provided us with a solid framework for creating, curating and realising ideas. Together we cut through the complexity and generate workable solutions which can quickly make their way into our customer’s hands. I would highly recommend this” – Mark Foley, UI/UX Design Lead, Poppulo
