In only two days, we will teach you how to run a full-scale Design Sprint - Silicon Valley style.
December 12th - December 13th, 2017
@ Oslo House of Innovation
Solve big problems and test ideas in just five days. The Design Sprint is a powerful approach since fast innovation cycles are key in today's rapidly changing business landscape.
The Design Sprint is an innovation process that allows your team to define a problem, ideate solutions, build prototypes, and test them with real human beings. It borrows tools and techniques from Design Thinking, Lean Startup, and Service Design. The bootcamp is facilitated by leading practitioners and trainers.
What people say about us
The Design Sprint concept
The concept is simple: In 5 days you go from a challenge to a solution, test it with real users, and iterate towards optimal results. However, before launching the Sprint, you and your team must have a general understanding of the problem you are trying to solve. You need user research.
The week goes like this: Monday you set the stage, get the perspective and clarify the challenge. Tuesday you sketch solutions, brainstorm, and bodystorm. Wednesday you decide what to build and make a storyboard. Thursday you build the prototype(s). Friday you interview users and test the prototype(s).
What you will learn at this bootcamp:
How to set up, facilitate, and execute the multiple facets of a design sprint
How to define a smart problem statement
How to generate ideas effectively
How to sketch

What will you do?
You'll go through the main parts of the Sprint as active ‘doers,’ getting your hands dirty throughout the entire two days. You'll be working in teams, and solving challenges using Design Sprint tools - while having tons of fun. We will avoid the traditional one-way, theory-heavy lectures, which are unfit for innovation training. And although all of our content and methods are rigorously and empirically tested, this Bootcamp has a strong hands-on, applied, and team-based foundation.
What can participants use these techniques for?
Develop and test new products, services, and processes
Solve human-centered challenges in the organization
Design new business models
Branding and marketing projects
Storytelling for marketing and branding activities
