Kick-start innovation projects or fix big problems

Solve big problems, test big ideas with your customers, and get immediate feedback, even remotely, in just 5 days.

Originally developed by Jake Knapp and John Zeratsky at Google Ventures, the Design Sprint was created to quickly find solutions to critical business problems or create new products and services. It ensures that team members are all on the same page, resolves conflicts, and is a great way to kickstart an important innovation project.

Design Sprint facilitation experts Steph Cruchon (Design Sprint Ltd), Jake Knapp and John Zeratsky (The Sprintbook) and Jackie Colburn (Jackiecolburn) created this template, which follows the original 5-day Design Sprint process, to allow remote teams to run design sprints successfully and with the same outcomes as in-person sprints.

This template has been created in collaboration with the creators of the design sprint at GV and authors of the book, Sprint — Jake Knapp and John Zeratsky, as well as Jackie Colburn, an expert facilitator.
