Decision tree: Is a Design Sprint right for you?


Design Sprints have exploded in popularity over the past few years with product managers looking to shake up their normal Agile sprints or wanting to experiment with something new.

We understand that trying a new process (or really trying anything new) is scary. Apart from setting aside the necessary time, resources, and people (which is difficult in itself) there’s always the looming question: will this actually work?

We’ve run dozens of Design Sprints for clients and our own internal projects and noticed a pattern of projects for which sprints were the right fit. Answer the questions using the decision tree below to determine if a Design Sprint would be a good fit for your challenge. If it is a good fit, check out our other articles about Design Sprints and our new Design Sprint Shorts YouTube series for helpful tips. We run Design Sprints regularly for clients, and are happy to assist. Get in touch to learn more.
