About this workshop

Do you have long discovery periods before you go into development? Do you carefully manage the way you conduct research, run user testing or plan out visual design phases? The Agile approach to project management for design is becoming widely adopted in organisations who develop digital products and services.

Design sprints are not just for startups. Introducing these methods into any project will give you increased confidence and result in you shipping sooner by including key team members from throughout the organisation as part of a single-sprint-team.

In this 1-day workshop, you will be giving the structure and know-how to run your own 5-day design sprints, as practiced by Google Ventures. We will look at the leadership skills you will need to keep your team motoring in this immersive, and collaborative week, how to remove the political roadblocks, over-documentation and HiPPO (Highest Paid Person’s Opinion) effect that can cripple projects.

Who is this suitable for?
