What the course includes

How is this different?

Why is this great for Startups?
Often times startups and small businesses run into product or growth challenges where design thinking methodologies can go a long way to solving those problems. Design Sprints is the perfect introduction towards integrating modern problem solving and design thinking practices within your company culture and overall organizational practices.

Why is this great for Designers
Often times designers are asked to create user experiences or user interfaces based on predetermined feature lists and spec documents based on stakeholder assumption. Design sprints provide designers with the opportunity to bring a specific framework to the business table and offer design thinking and strategy to the decision making process before design actually begins.

Why is this great for Product Managers
Often times one of the primary responsibilities of product managers is to create consistently a high level of clarity and alignment between designers, engineers, and stakeholders. The design sprint offers a tool for product managers to get a diverse array of people within their company or organization to work together to create solutions to advance the overall product development.

Why is this great for EVERYBODY!
One of the best parts of the design sprint is that it allows virtually anybody and everybody to participate and learn the basics of the design thinking process. The design sprint is a problem solving framework that you can apply to any challenge you are facing as an individual or company in ways that go beyond traditional UX or design problems.
