During the five-week program we will present a balance of theory and practice.

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.

"Useful, practical, two sprint frameworks (product and service oriented) for the price of one"

I chose Design Sprint School among other providers for two main reasons: MVS model on top of GV (and I needed that service focus) and I could see a lot about the content and style before committing to it (others may give you a short index).

Content was... Read More

All in all, I found the course very well structured, and the practical parts very well thought through. I had experience with design thinking methods applied to UX design, but I still got quite a lot out of it, thus I Will be recommending it.
