About the Design Sprint
The Design Sprint is a highly structured five-day process for solving problems and testing new ideas. Invented at Google by Jake Knapp, then perfected with more than 150 startups at Google Ventures, the Design Sprint helps teams solve big problems and test prototype solutions—all in a single week. Today, the Design Sprint has spread to places like Facebook, Apple, Airbnb, Uber, IDEO, and LEGO. And it’s not just for companies—Design Sprints have been used by organizations like the United Nations and the European Space Agency; by non-profits, governments, and even museums. Jake’s bestselling book Sprint is available in 22 languages, and smart teams around the world are applying its lessons to give their products and services the best chance of success, and to have a good time along the way.
