Five phases to de-risk and kickstart product ideas
Design Sprints are a proven method to jumpstart a new product, project, or feature. They can be completed in few days or up to two weeks. The five phases will guide your team to:
Define the right problem
Getting a deeper understanding of your challenge’s root causes with context of your business will help pinpoint the exact problem to rally around.
Create a potential solution
Rapidfire brainstorming will produce a lot of exciting and viable ideas. Your team will select one that has the most promise to create impact on your product.
Test to validate or invalidate the idea
Validating your product concept increases speed to market and lowers chance of failure.
Outputs that drive outcomes
The most common outputs of Design Sprints are hypotheses that are either validated or invalidated through testing your low-fidelity prototype. Design Sprints can produce other assets besides low-fidelity prototypes depending on the proposed solution to your problem.
Design Sprint results go beyond prototypes and user testing feedback. You’ll create vision-led goals and align your team around those goals as a by-product of the five phases. Your perspective will change in how you work, see your customers, and create future products. We’ll guide you through that process each step of the way.
When we started the Design Sprint process, I was worried how this was going to turn out. But after the second session, I trust you guys completely. I know your team ‘gets’ us and what we’re trying to do. We’re now on a different course than we planned at the outset, but it’s exactly what our company needs right now.Doug Mitchell, CEO Of OfferLogic
