Remote Design Sprint

What is the Remote Design Sprint?

The Remote Design Sprint is a week-long process for answering big product problems and business questions through design, prototyping, and testing ideas with customers.

It's essentially a way of working that reduces the risk of projects going over budget and over tight deadlines.

By creating a realistic prototype and testing it out with real people, you can discover whether the solution in mind is really the right one to invest further time and money into.


What is it good for?

  • digital transformation
  • new app design
  • hardware products
  • organisational change
  • creative projects
  • business model validation
  • improving failing products
  • evaluating the success of a product feature
  • web projects
  • new startup ideas
  • large software products
  • the conversion flow of a checkout
  • revising internal design processes
  • better ways to organise team events
  • getting unstuck from a sticky decision
  • aligning the team
  • …and many others

What does it look like?

Using a tailored framework based from the original Design Sprint, together with the appropriate cloud-based Apps, the Remote Design Sprint gives any business, regardless of timezone or location, the ability to compress months of work into just one week.


Going remote

Remote is a reality and we are learning all the time from people that do it day-in day-out.

We chatted to remote work coach and UX designer Laïla von Alvensleben on what real remote work looks like in a recent episode of the Etch Podcast.

Available on iTunes and Spotify.

What do you have at the end of the sprint?

The outcome of a Sprint is the validation of an idea and more specifically, a user-tested prototype of that idea which looks and feels like a real website or app with the benefit of having been tested in real life by real people.

You will also have a product backlog - a list of all the things that need to be done next.

And finally, all of the decisions and documentation needed to move things forward in the form of a Sprint summary report.


What happens after the sprint?

Once you have participated in the sprint, you will have a much clearer idea of what needs to happen next within your business to take things forward.

We recommend using a second week to work in the feedback, iterate and polish the solution, working in anything like brand guidelines and getting things ready to share with your team. We call this the Iteration Week.

After the sprint, we will have a day to handover with your production team, ensuring everyone has what they need to execute the plan.


Why with us?
