What is DESIGN SPRINT and how to implement one?

A design sprint at Increo is a 4-day process of concentrated collaboration to create new products and services, or to improve what already exists.

The goal of the sprint is to drive innovation and development with the lowest possible risk, without wasting time and resources. No endless discussions, but all participants get an equally clear voice in the process.

Design sprint to what?

The process is great to use when developing:

  • products
  • digital and physical services
  • websites and apps
  • identities
  • market strategies
  • contents
  • brands

What to use design sprint as a working method could potentially save the enterprise hundreds of thousands in development costs and hundreds of man-hours. That's why the world's largest development department, LEGO, has established design sprint as their core process when developing new products. Google, AirBnB, Sparebank1 SMN and even NAV are examples of businesses that have solved complex issues with design sprint.

So how to get started?

1. Take a course

If you do not have the time or experience to learn from a book, you can book a two-day intensive course at Peil, where you will be introduced to the refined version of Design sprint 2.0, developed by AJ&Smart and Jake Knapp. With the purchase, you get everything you need to get started. We hold both open courses — and in-house courses. Get in touch with us for more details.
