The idea behind Design Sprints is to put together a team’s creative ideas around a specific problem during a limited time-frame. They are a great way to bring together methodologies from Design Thinking and Agile and ideate solutions in just a few days, rather than weeks or months. Design Sprints run between 2 and 5 days, with the goal of ideating, designing, and prototyping a solution to a known problem.

The exercises and schedule for these activities are adapted from the book “Design Sprint” by Richard Banfield, C.Todd Lombardo, Trace Wax. O’Reilly, 2016. This book provides details on how to conduct the exercises and additional methods that may fit specific needs.
