During the five-week program we will present a balance of theory and practice. Participants will run their own Design Sprint while also playing the role of user for another participant.This is what we call peer designing. With our unique approach to peer designing, you get to ride both sides. You will learn how users feel when participating in a Design Sprint and use that knowledge to make better decisions as a Sprint Master.
The dynamic of the program is self-paced with weekly practices, so you can take your time going through theory and concepts. You will have until the end of each week to upload your practice, give feedback to your peer, and receive feedback from both your peer and the mentor. This is your chance to run your first Design Sprint project with users right off the bat.

"Great choice"

I took a long time to decide on a Design Sprint/ Design Thinking Course. I did a few free one's and read a few books on the subject but struggled to put everything together. The price ranges for theses courses varied al lot and this was one of the more... Read More

I was blown away by the content, the toolbox and the Library. It puts everything in place with theory and practice. You also do a real life example of a Design Spring during the course. This allowed me to get some real practice. The other bonus is that the Course also covers two Sprint Methodologies which is great.

As for the content, I have learned a lot more than expected. If you need a solid course with a certification, this is it.
