Partner with Etch Sprints and we will lead change with your team in just one week.
The Design Sprint is a week-long step-by-step process for answering critical product and business questions through design, prototyping, and testing ideas with customers.
Developed at GV, it’s a “greatest hits” of business strategy, innovation, behavior science, design thinking, and more—packaged into a battle-tested process that any team can use.
Working together in a sprint, you can shortcut the endless-debate cycle and compress months of time into a single week.
Instead of waiting to launch a minimal product to understand if an idea is any good, you’ll get clear data from a realistic prototype. The sprint gives you a superpower: You can fast-forward into the future to see your finished product and customer reactions, before making any expensive commitments.
Once the problem has been defined, we lead teams through a framework to get to greater outcomes.
Together, we understand the long term goal, define the challenges and produce a mass of solutions.
We curate and vote on the best solutions together, deciding what should be in the prototype with a storyboard.
Once we know what we are designing, we create the prototype and setup the user test scenarios.
Testing the prototype with real people, we then use the feedback to create clear next steps in the form of a roadmap.
Following battle-tested frameworks, Sprints do without the endless debate cycle and compresses months of time into just a few days.
Validate assumptions and ideas with both your team and customers without the expense and time of building and launching.
Sprints enable teams to test out big ideas that help the business make giant leaps toward innovation.
The Sprint can be perfectly designed to meet a number of business critical situations, leading to better outcomes when the right activities are conducted. Here are a few examples we conduct:
We use design sprints to create or improve digital products and business processes, with the first week discovering and learning and the second with iterating and defining next actions. Each week includes:
Defining your strategy is an important part of planning while keeping grounded in user-centered needs.
Here's what our satisfied partners think of working with us.
“Thanks for your brilliant session [with the Note and Vote] - the teams loved it!”
“I'd started reading the book and what I found really useful was actually the practical side of it. Having the verbal presentation then backed up with the workshop was very good! ”
[The Note and Vote:] It was very different from what we expected in the sense that it addressed other areas of the business, not just the product.
“I not only learned a new method and why it works, but learned lots about the lives of my fellow attendees in the process.”
“An intense week with inspiring people, wrapping up with an outstanding Design Sprint session with Ross Chapman at Etch. Stepping forward into an amazing future. Can’t be more proud of being part of this team.”
“I found it so effective to do [learning the Design Sprint] as I learn with activity and it helped embed learning as I went. It was proper learning, rather than training!”
