Event description
Advance your career and build new innovation skills with this 1-week action-oriented Design Sprint Certification Program.

About this event

We've created this program to help facilitators, innovation managers, consultants move from understanding the core concepts of design thinking and design sprints to practicing and applying these concepts in real business scenarios.

Through extended practice, you'll build confidence and improve your ability to apply design thinking to your own work.

What you'll learn

You'll learn to use insights to turn customer needs into human-centered solutions.

You'll deepen your design thinking skills and further develop your:

  • Creative problem-solving skills
  • Leadership mindset
  • Critical thinking skills

You will learn all the ins and outs of running successful Design Sprints by working in a team setup through B2B and B2C simulations based on real business case studies.

What is a Design Sprint?

A design sprint is a method used for solving problems through ideation, prototyping, and testing ideas with specifically targeted users.

It was developed at Google, to align teams under a shared vision with clearly defined goals and deliverables. After much success, design sprints are now being adopted by companies all over the globe, as a creative way to collaborate and solve business problems.

What happens in a Design Sprint?

With a small, cross-functional team and a clear schedule for the week, you’ll progress from a problem to a tested solution in only 4 days.

  • On Monday, the team creates a map of the problem and defines the direction of the sprint.
  • On Tuesday, each individual sketches solutions and decide which sketches are the strongest.
  • On Thursday, the entire team builds a realistic prototype by working together and playing different roles.
  • And finally, on Friday, the team tests the prototype with five target customers and looks for reactions, comments, questions, moments of truth.

But Design Sprints are no silver bullet. We've learned how to avoid common pitfalls after running hundreds of sprints with our clients.

We found design sprints through our own example of a successful failure. Our Design Sprint journey started in late 2015 before the Google Ventures book ‘Sprint’ was published. Since then we’ve run hundreds of design sprints for a variety of companies, from Fortune 500 companies to startups.

We've learned what works, what doesn't and how to improve the process so we consistently get to the best outcomes. So, we have re-engineered the design sprint process to effectively establish the problem before the sprint by running a Problem Framing workshop with key decision-makers.

Our extensive experience has enabled us to design an original end-to-end Design Sprint training that will take you from zero to an expert Design Sprint Facilitator in just five days. This training program is:

  • A great fit for corporates, enterprise organizations, and startups
  • Adaptable to any service, product, or business problem
  • Helps frame and solve complex business problems
  • Optimal use of resources: time, people, and effort
  • Considers the entire context, both business need, and customer problem
  • That's why Innovators, Disruptors, Strategists, Designers, and Product Creators are joining our events.

This is how our Alumni describe the training program:
