When and where is it on?
Wednesday October 25, 2017
Venue: Dublin City Centre (exact location to be confirmed)
How many years has it been going?
Jake Knapp’s Sprint Process is a new book. This is the first facilitator workshop on this process.
What was the inspiration to start it?
Read the book. It was amazing. Went to the workshop. Loved it.
You may have noticed Facebook’s updated Newsfeed. This was a direct result of a Sprint. Design Sprints are used for updating existing products as well as creating and testing new ones. Here’s a medium post from one of their lead designers:
The Irish Independent covers a story of Savioke, one of the two case studies mentioned in the Sprint talk;
As of today, Blue Bottle Coffee is valued at $700 million due to Néstle acquiring a majority stake in them. Before they ran a Sprint they were not selling outside of the U.S. They ideated and tested their new website using this process with Jake Knapp.

What exciting things can people look forward to for the 2017 version?
Learn how to facilitate a Sprint in your own company. It is a power tool. I describe it as Design Thinking and Lean Startup on Steroids!
What opportunities are on offer for people / startups / investors and companies attending?
The opportunity is to get the tools to Solve Big Problems and Test New Ideas in Just 5 Days!
What tips would you give to people attending to get the most out of it?
Just turn up!
How can people book tickets / when does it usually sell out?
There are a limited number of places for this workshop. It’ll fill up very quickly.
