Working with Design Sprint Academy we completely unlocked the benefits of design sprints promised in the book Sprint. Design sprints are now a cornerstone of how we work and we continue to improve them with help from the Design Sprint Academy.

Closing out an amazing day at our DesignBetter workshop on Design Sprints. Shout-out to our fearless leader John Vetan for such a meaningful day of learning and teamwork!

Managing Director for RGAX in EMEA

A great morning spent @Google London, focussing on ‘Design Sprints for Change’. 400 applications for the event, 100 in the room – it is a movement. It was fascinating to see how other big and small businesses are employing the same approach as RGAX to help their business grow by helping others. It was also nice to reconnect with John Vetan and Dana Vetan @designsprintacademy who showed us the way to identify real problems worth solving and create solutions you can test – all in 5 days!

With all the different perspectives and the coaching of your facilitator we were able to develop, prototype, and test quite a different, innovative idea.

Thank you so much for taking us along with you on a two-day Design sprint journey! It was professionally led, fun to experience, and it provided us with a great framework and new insights to work with. Looking forward to putting this into practice and adding more value to our output as a creative agency.

Awesome time attending the Problem Framing Workshop at Google today. Great insight into how to increase stakeholder visibility into the biases that draw focus onto solutions instead of true problems.  Shared understanding of the issue(s) at hand really enable teams to focus where it is most needed. Thank you!
