Google Design Sprint Kit

The Google design sprint framework is a five-phase framework developed by Google that helps answer critical business questions through rapid prototyping and user testing. The design sprints let teams reach clearly defined goals and deliverables and gain key learnings. According to Google, this process helps spark innovation, encourage user-centered thinking, align teams under a shared vision, and get faster to product launch.

Created in 2010, the Google design sprint framework is the result of the study and test of 300 different business strategy, design thinking, and user research methods from places like IDEO and Stanford d.school. Google took the most effective ones and evolved them, arranging them into a framework that supports both divergent thinking (creative brainstorming that results in multiple possible solutions) and convergent thinking (using defined, logical steps to arrive at one solution). The methodology has evolved over time and continues to be refined and tested.

The Google design sprint framework website provides different case studies, a step by step guide to planning the design sprint, tools and templates tools to help you run design sprints and a FAQ. In the context of Scrum, this approach could be interesting to explore before you actually launch you project in a process that is often labeled as “iteration zero”.
