A Google Design Sprint is useful for validating ideas and thoughts before money and energy has been invested into a service that might not be useful for users.

The Sprint was an excellent opportunity to conceptualise, design and test concepts for new services. It created tangible results in a week, which we could immediately implement. It was very quick and engaging and raised our collective team spirit.

Google Design Sprint benefits

A realistic prototype.

Every Design Sprint ends with a realistic prototype of your product or service. This can be a new front page, a mobile view or a new, important functionality.

Outcomes of prototype testing.

On the last day of the Sprint, your product will undergo end-user testing that gives you an overview of how your users think and what they do and hints on how to use this for further development.

A concept of thoughts and ideas

The four days of the Sprint generate a lot of different thoughts and ideas on how to continue forward with your product. All of these will be gathered into one concept.

A common goal and team spirit

Sprints help strengthen team cohesion, make unified decisions on products and developments, as well as raise a team’s energy levels to allow them to better tackle projects.

An answer for how to continue.

It should be obvious at the end of a Sprint whether you received an answer to your original question or whether your idea was validated. Should you continue developing your product and if so, how?
