- Facilitate a Design Sprint as a team and solve a current problem facing a local startup
- Get valuable feedback from our Design Sprint Masters on your facilitating – including a written report on how to improve
- Create a detailed Storyboard, build a functioning Prototype, and Test your Prototype with real Users

- Become a Lean Disruptor Certified Design Sprint Facilitator
We have trained over 200 participants worldwide from companies such as:
- 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 master you Design Sprint facilitation skills.
LEAN DISRUPTOR team has run Design Sprint Facilitator workshops in Ireland, Sri Lanka & Singapore and run Design Sprints for Corporates in the USA, UK & Ireland. They were trained by Jake Knapp.
”We were going to run our own Design Sprint and attempt to facilitate it ourselves. I was conscious that we were bringing key people together for a week away from their normal work. This is costly and this needed to succeed. I decided, therefore, to contact Rohan to facilitate. He flew to London to undertake this. Rohan kept us focused, on time, and continuously interested in the process. I feel we gained enormous value out of the week. This was largely due to how it was facilitated. Rohan was energetic, focused and strictly but gently kept everyone on track. I believe that the DS would risk being much less successful or meeting the hectic time scale without Rohan’s facilitation. We will definitely do this again … with Rohan.” Brendan O’Hara, Co-founder, Untapped
”Rohan was brilliant at facilitating our design sprint. He kept us focused and on track while also bringing a fun attitude. Not much flusters him, even when things go wrong. Highly recommended!” Barry Cotter, Customer Delivery and Operations Manager, ClaimVantage
“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
You may have noticed Facebook’s updated Newsfeed. This was a direct result of a Sprint. Design Sprints are used for updating existing products as well as creating and testing new ones. Here’s a medium post from one of their lead designers: https://medium.com/facebook-design/evolving-the-facebook-news-feed-to-serve-you-better-f844a5cb903d
Blue Bottle Coffee is valued at $700 million due to Néstle acquiring a majority stake in them. Before they ran a Sprint they were not selling outside of the U.S. They ideated and tested their new website using this process with Jake Knapp. https://techcrunch.com/2017/09/14/nestle-acquires-a-majority-stake-in-blue-bottle-coffee/
LEAN DISRUPTOR will run their newly formed Design Sprint Masters Programme on Wednesday & Thursday, July 17-18th, 2019, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Huckletree, 42 Pearse Street, Dublin 2.
Facebook, Slack, Savioke, Bluebottle Coffee, Lego have all run very successful Sprints using the Jake Knapp’s Sprint process. In this workshop, you will be taking part in a Sprint.
