What should I expect from a Product Design Sprint?

From our HQ in Northern Ireland our Product Design Sprints have been benefiting our clients throughout the UK & Ireland.

User research

Every great software project must fit the needs of it's users. We conduct a number of qualitative and quantitative research activities to make sure any solution is viable with the target audience.

Hi-fidelity clickable prototype

At the end of the product design sprint process you and your team will leave with a high-fidelity clickable prototype that has been tested with representative users.

Prioritised requirements list

We also summarise all the outcomes of the design sprint into a final report so you’ll have a record of all the great ideas generated by your team.

From there, if you’re a startup you can use the prototype to apply for funding or investment. For established companies, it can validate your project, unlocking budget and engaging your team before project kick-off.

What is a GCD product design sprint?

Originally developed by the Google team, the original Design Sprint model took a business or feature problem and aimed to solve it over a 4 day period, like a mega workshop.

We’ve taken that idea of solving a problem in a contained period of time and transformed it into our own Product Design Sprint service.

It takes an idea, a group of people and in just four weeks, with a step-by-step design thinking framework, drives the idea through to a valid prototype that is tested with real users. From our HQ in Northern Ireland we’ve been using it to the benefit of our clients throughout the UK & Ireland.

What happens during a product design sprint?

Our tried and tested Product Design Sprint is an ideal way to take an idea or business problem and turn it into an actionable project plan with a defined solution and estimated budget. Taking place over a few weeks, It’s a great way to ensure that a project is feasible and that a solution is possible before launching into a full product development project.

During those 4 valuable weeks we follow a specific process:

Understand the problem

Ideate the solutions

Make a decision

Create a prototype

Test with real users
