DESIGN SPRINTS

The design sprint is a five-day Google ventures effort that has been coined in the book “Sprint.” It is a process where you find answers to critical business questions in five days through design, prototyping, and testing ideas with customers. It can also be seen as a recipe that takes the mindset and learnings from design thinking and applies it to a five-day step-by-step process. A design sprint can help answer critical business questions from design, prototyping, and testing ideas with clients.

Why use design sprints?

Save time and money
Design sprints help to bypass the endless-debate cycle and reduce months of brainstorming, the exercise of creativity, and user testing into just one week. It saves you the time and money involved in these lengthy traditional design and development processes.
Get feedback from real user
Creating a customer-centric product is one of the critical factors for its success. So, it is always important to get reviews and feedback from those who will use the product. Even though this is a five-day process, it still allows you to involve real customers to provide feedback on the design.
Make informed decisions
Sketching and prototyping also decrease the cost of failure. You can explore new things, and if they don’t work out, it will not be much of a problem. The user testing at the end of the five days raises the chances of the final product proving viable in reality. Therefore, with a design sprint, there’s less risk.
Design products that deliver
Design sprints help you build products that people will use. It gives you confidence that the product will succeed before embarking on a long and often expensive development process. This five-day process leads up to user testing on the last day. So, you have access to valuable user experiences and feedback that will give insights into whether the app will be successful.
Encourages original thinking
Design sprint encourages original thinking through iteration and experimentation. Because of the focus on prototyping and sketching, it gives you the flexibility to experiment with ideas that the company would typically reject. This can be done because the cost of failure is negligible, and you will have the possibility to explore many ideas.

Design sprint process and stages

This methodology helps you to reduce months of work into five days.

Day 1- Map

The team brainstorms with experts from every department of the organization to identify the ultimate purpose of the sprint and map out the challenge for the five days. Is it to increase conversion? Reduce bounce rate? They need to identify the problem.

Day 2 – Sketch

After the goal has been identified, the team starts exploring several solutions by checking different sources of inspiration and drafting various approaches that they could use.

Day 3 – Decide

The team now analyses the solutions explored on Tuesday and decides which ones have the best odds of fulfilling the long-term goal. They then develop the sketched solutions into storyboards.

Day 4 – Prototype

On Thursday, you and your team will turn the storyboards into a working prototype that mimics the final approach and ready it for testing with customers.

Day 5 – Test

Once everything is ready, the final prototype is presented to prospective users, and its viability is tested. Now, you can start gathering feedback by watching how the customers react to the prototype.
