In this 2-day bootcamp, you’ll learn the process of Design Sprints, how they can help, practice sprint exercises, ask questions, build confidence, and get an immersive experience so you can run your own Design Sprint like a pro. You’ll leave with new and powerful ways to do better work faster, and you’ll have a super fun time doing it!

In addition to the exercises, you'll also learn the little tricks we have learned along the way in 3 years of running design sprints. We will share insights on how to align a diverse group and keep everyone focused on a common goal, how to manage different egos in the room, what to do with the troublemaker and much more.

Design Sprints

Design Sprints are a step-by-step process for answering critical business questions, creating new products or improving existing ones. Since their conception in 2016, Design Sprints have been used by product leaders in companies like Uber, Slack, Google and Twitter to solve problems and build better products.

Design Sprints were created by Jake Knapp while working with startups at Google Ventures. They're a “greatest hits” of business strategy, innovation, behaviour science, design thinking, and more — packaged into a battle-tested process that any team can use.

Longer hours don't equal better results. By getting the right people together, structuring the activities, and eliminating distraction, we've found that it's possible to make rapid progress while working a reasonable schedule.

Be prepared to roll up your sleeves

You will be in for a surprise if you are expecting laidback days away from work and lots of gyaan.

Be prepared for 2 action-packed days where we split into teams and go through exercises, exactly like we do in a real sprint. We will go through all 5 stages of the Design Sprint process, and we'll also discuss examples of how to go about each stage in different scenarios.

You will learn by doing, but also by listening to our experiences of running sprints with companies of different sizes and facing challenges specific to the Indian business ecosystem.

Meet your trainer

FAQs

Here are some of the questions we get asked about the workshop. If you have any other queries, you can reach out to us on hello@parallelhq.com

Do I need to read the book before the workshop?

No. It is nice if you have read the book before the workshop, but it is not necessary as we will cover all the exercises of a Design Sprint and more during the workshop.

What if I already know a lot about Design Sprints and Sprint facilitation?

That’s great! If you already know a lot about the Design Sprint process and have facilitated before, join us to learn some hacks and how to avoid common mistakes — things we learnt from Jake Knapp himself.

Can you do a workshop for my entire team or organisation?

Yes! We believe that training teams in the Sprint process helps them align and get productive. We also have group pricing available for teams. Reach out to us at hello@parallelhq.com to learn more.
