Design
Sprint

Create new products, add new features, or improve existing products with Design Sprint at Uptech. Save time and money, reduce risks, align, and inspire your team and achieve breakthrough results.

What is
Design Sprint

Design Sprint at Uptech is a four-day process for creating new products or improving existing ones. Brainstorm ideas, create the product strategy, build the prototype and validate it with real users in just a few days rather than months.

Design Sprint is inspired by Google and validated by the most innovative companies in the world, such as Slack, Uber, Airbnb, LinkedIn, or McKinsey!

Design Sprint at Uptech embraces the Lean principles and the Design Thinking approach in a practical step-by-step workshop week.

Facilitation matters

Design Sprint consists of more than 20 exercises. You need an experienced facilitator who will guide you through each exercise and make sure you move towards your goal.

The outcomes
of Design Sprint?

You’ll get

Customer Journey Map (CJM)
A high-fidelity interactive prototype that feels like a real product
User test summary and video recordings
Team alignment and the momentum to speed up the release and maximize your ROI
Methods and techniques you can use on your own to solve any problem
Product Strategy and next steps, prioritized with the Impact/Scale map

After Design Sprint, you’ll have a clear understanding of what the next steps should be for your product!

You can use a second sprint to iterate and improve the idea based on feedback, or you can use the prototype to sell the idea to stakeholders and develop the concept.
