What is a design sprint?
Design sprint is usually a five-day process, which answers critical business questions through design, prototyping and testing ideas with customers. This methodology has been developed by Google designers to build better products faster and to grow UX culture across the organization. In the last couple of years, design sprints have become very popular. To learn more you can always refer to the wonderful book “The Sprint Book” by Jake Knapp: https://jakeknapp.com/sprint.
Phases of design sprints
Design sprints consist of five phases that usually stand for the five days of a week. The idea is to force you and your team to focus on tasks and work efficiently, aiming to present a realistic outcome by the end of the week. Let’s run through these five days and see what is expected to be done during each of them.
