Most Sprints fail when teams don’t have a clear understanding of the problem. Based on our facilitating experiences, we created a set of tools to ensure teams tackle the right problem before jumping to solutions.
Google invited us to San Francisco to share our knowledge on Problem Framing. Participants included their Design Sprint Masters and other Product Managers, Strategists and Designers from Adobe, PayPal, Boeing, SalesForce and Nike.
Our Problem Framing workshop provides a framework on how to address the relevant aspects of a problem, to engage a team of stakeholders and to gain the confidence that you are tackling a problem worth solving.
We started providing public and corporate design sprint workshops all over the globe, and founded the Design Sprint Academy, with the goal to help companies and individuals to get the most out of the Design Sprint framework and… to avoid failure.
This year, we joined forces with Invision, and as part of the DesignBetter community, we facilitated their Berlin’ Design Sprint Workshop.
While Sprints were practiced within companies, there were no workshops available for those keen to learn how to run a Design Sprint.
Based on the learnings within New Haircut, our sister software development company, John Vetan ran our first 5-day Immersive Design Sprint Workshop at the Startup Institute, New York.
