How to solve big problems and put new ideas into action within 3 days.
Entrepreneurs all deal with the question: "Which efforts are best to focus on and where do you start?"
An even bigger question is usually this: "How many meetings does it take to find the right solution?"
Google's Design Sprint method solves this problem and gives you answers ten times faster than traditional methods.
Find out which idea has the most potential.
Test your idea before you invest in development.
The Design Sprint system was developed by Google. Startups, Fortune 100 companies and non-profit organisations use the system to find fast and effective solutions in e-commerce, healthcare, finance and more.
From developing an idea to creating a working prototype, the Design Sprint process is the fastest and surest way to find a solution within a week!
At W4, the focus is always on practice. That's why we offer you a customised design sprint of three days. One day is too short, whereas within three days you can learn the essential steps of a sprint and achieve constructive results. You even save two days, as a sprint normally takes five days.
The ideal number of participants in a design sprint is 4-7 people.
There are also other important key roles among the members:
The facilitator, designer, decision maker and a person from the core of the company (marketing, content, operations, etc.).
A Design Sprint consists of members with different functions. This allows tasks to be viewed from different angles.
The workshop takes place in a team, is practice-oriented and designed in such a way that a concrete prototype emerges from your abstract idea within only three days. This allows you to test it in practice very quickly.
Whether you are planning your next software project, your new service or a marketing campaign: with the Design Sprint Workshop we will put you on the road to success!
The Design Sprint takes place in six phases:
Understand: Discover the challenge, business benefits, audience, motivation and success metrics.
Define: We define the key issues and the long-term goal to be achieved. In doing so, we will set realistic goals.
Outline: Instead of brainstorming, we use a deeper system so that each individual can outline their own detailed solution. Using the 4-step method, we also encourage critical thinking.
Decide: Now we have a variety of solutions. Instead of endless debate and decisions that satisfy no one, we use a 5-step method to identify the best solution. We convert this into a step-by-step guide to a prototype.
Model: We design and build a prototype that can be verified by the user.
Validate and test: Conduct 1:1 tests with 5-6 people from the target group.
