The Design Sprint is a methodology for quickly solving problems through developing a hypothesis, prototyping an idea, and testing ideas with users. Design Sprints quickly align teams under a shared vision with clearly defined goals and deliverables. The Design Sprint methodology was developed at Google from a vision to grow user experience (UX) culture and the practice of design leadership across an organisation. The length of time for Design Sprints will be based on the goals and the needs of the team. Sprints typically range from 1 to 5 days. This resource includes guidance on the methodology, planning sprints, a method library (including recipes for sets of methods used sequentially for different purposes), and downloadable resources. The web-based resource also features a community of contributors as well as case studies. While the Design Sprint methodology has commonly been used for product design in a private sector context, the methodology can also be valuable in the public sector for exploring a problem spaces and quickly prototyping ideas and testing assumptions.
