Product Love: The hidden challenges of running a design sprint


Tuesday 29th June





The challenges of a sprint

We’ve worked with Design Sprint methods for over 5 years, delivering them for diverse businesses such as Audi, Abel and Cole and Amnesty International

Sprints are a rapid way to create new ideas, bringing together people from across a business – sometimes for the first time.

However, they’re not always plain-sailing. 

There are many factors that can either make or break a successful sprint, from making sure the right people are there to even running it on a particular day of the week. 

Three key takeaways

  • Find out why some design sprints can fail and how you can avoid these common traps.
  • Discover the best methods for dealing with design sprint challenges when they arise.
  • Learn the key principles for effective and enjoyable design sprints.
