Design Sprint Experience > Berlin | Design Sprint Academy | Montag, 08. April 2019

A 2-day, hands-on workshop designed to help you learn by practicing the tools & techniques within the Google Ventures Design Sprint.

First of all, what is a design sprint? To quote our friend Rachel Simpson at Google, a design sprint is “a framework – it’s many different tools structured inside of a process to answer critical business questions”.

To go one step further than that, it’s a cyclical problem-solving process that enables a team to adopt the principles of Design Thinking for rapid ideation that leads to building, testing, and validating a new or existing product, service or feature in just 5-days.
With design sprints, you can expect to revolutionize the way your team: answers critical business questions, jump-starts projects, and defines marketing and growth strategies.

Second of all, who is this workshop for? Does this include YOU? Are you…

Struggling to build better products, and faster

Struggling to get team alignment.

Wanting to understand your customers - knowing the difference between what they say they want and what they actually buy.

Looking for new ways to speed up the timely and costly process for product and service development.

Tired of investing your marketing budgets in products that are 'DOA' and don't have market fit - no longer waste money and time invested in building something consumers aren’t going to buy or use

Have one of the following titles/roles?

Innovation Managers

Product Managers

Executives at large companies

Startup founders

UX Leads

UX/UI Designers

Dev Leads



Who should NOT attend this workshop?
Those wanting to sit back and just listen to the theory. If you aren’t into participation or engagement, this workshop isn’t for you. You need to come prepared to work hard in an intense, time-constrained, and collaborative setting.

Third of all, why take this workshop? Why will this benefit you?
By the end of the 2-day training, you’ll be able to:
·    Have the tools needed to understand and empathize with your user.
·    Learn how to build a Customer Journey Map.
·    Become an expert in ideation and solution sketching.
·    Learn how to storyboard as a group.
·    Experience prototyping best practices.
·    Learn how to make sense of customer testing insights.
·    Basically, compile solutions, build, and test a functional prototype.
You'll learn tools & techniques of the same proven, structured framework that Google Ventures has used to design, prototype, and validate solutions for Uber, Slack, Blue Bottle Coffee, and more.

Also, you’ll hear first-hand takeaways (and potential pitfalls) from design sprints we’ve run with our clients that showcase the fact that we're only teaching strategy and methods that are proven to lead our customers to success. And these real experiences can’t be made up or found online - just good ol’ hear say, but our hearsay is accredited.

We’ve been traveling the world and training professionals across all industries for the past 2 years. And, here’s what they have to say about their experience with us:

·    Design Sprint Workshop in NYC
·    Design Sprint Workshop in Berlin

“An amazing day at our Design Better workshop on Design Sprints. Shout-out to our fearless facilitators for such a meaningful day of learning and teamwork!” - Invision Team

‘Once again, thank you for the Design Sprint workshop you held in Helsinki! Everything went smoothly and I learned a bunch of new tools as well’. - Lesse Tammilehto, Creative Director @Solita, Helsinki

‘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.’ - Rene ten Brink, Program manager @Random Studio, Amsterdam
Still hesitant? Okay, here’s what we’re all about:
Well, we catch yawns. Don’t get why that makes us empathetic and trustworthy? Google it, and you’ll find out.  But, back on track, Design Sprint Academy is all about the motto sharing is caring. After learning and implementing the Design thinking principles into our own workflow, we wanted to share it with others. So, now we travel the world and train professionals from companies like Google, Microsoft, Paypal, Adobe, Boeing, Audible, RGA, UL, Ernst and Young, Hello Fresh, SAP, and Accenture to help them deliver real results that match their customer's needs.
And just to show you how much we love sharing, our workshops are now open to the public. That means that everyone can become familiar with and master the skills of running a successful design sprint. And lastly, we say this in the most humble way possible, but we are the originals - we were the first to do this training within workshops. So, there’s that too.
