Product Managers and Product Designers face big questions every day. Now there’s a surefire way to answer these important questions; the SPRINT. Jake Knapp created the five-day process at Google, where sprints were used on everything from Google Search to Google X.

How many years has it been going?

What exciting things can people look forward to?
The can learn to run their own Design Sprints.
“The Design Sprint workshop with Rohan and Raomal was really excellent. The hands-on approach to learning, and obvious passion for the subject shine through the whole day. I look forward to applying my this new technique and running our first sprint in MoneyMate” – Ronan Brennan, CTO, MoneyMate
“The Design Sprint workshop provided us with a solid framework for creating, curating and realising ideas. Together we cut through the complexity and generate workable solutions which can quickly make their way into our customer’s hands. I would highly recommend this” – Mark Foley, UI/UX Design Lead, Poppulo
