About this event

This class is a 1-day workshop running from 10:30am -2:30pm.

In this interactive, 4-hour introduction to Design Sprints, we’ll illustrate the process developed by Google Ventures and popularized in Jake Knapp's book, Sprint, by guiding you through ideating, prototyping and testing a new digital product.

Led by innovation and design strategy expert, Kandis O’Brien and the team at The SIX, you’ll learn practical strategies to help you become a more effective problem solver and you’ll leave with an understanding of how to use the 5-day Design Sprint process to solve complex businesses and design challenges.


- How and when to conduct a Design Sprint
- How to define and prioritize challenges and generate stakeholder alignment
- How to understand your customers’ needs and pain points and map their interaction journeys
- Proven approaches to ideation that are more effective than unstructured group brainstorming
- Prototyping, sketching and testing potential solutions with real users for data driven decision making


This workshop is ideal for anyone trying to create better user experiences or build better digital products including product leaders, designers and development leads
