How to Turn a Challenge Into a Solution.


This interactive half-day training introduces the Design Sprint, a process that allows teams to turn a challenge into a tested solution prototype in just five days. A Design Sprint generates realistic feedback from potential users early in the innovation process. Based on these insights, teams can sharpen their focus on real user needs and avoid following false tracks.

During the training you receive an overview of the typical Design Sprint process and get the chance to apply some of its key methods based on a real challenge. At the end there will be time to discuss how the key principles of Design Sprints could be applied to your own current challenges. Register now!
