I really enjoyed this piece. We run design sprints at planetary, and they're always a hit with our clients.
The part I've found to be hard is maintaining the enthusiasm and momentum after the sprint. Coming off a week of intense teamwork, you want to really push towards making all that research and testing a reality; unfortunately, when the team gets back into the "real world," the spirit of the sprint can feel very distant.
I'd love to hear how you fare in the post-sprint comedown :)
We are still pushing hard, so I don't have good answer except: keep pushing!
Also: impressive work from your portfolio!
Hey Giulio, thanks for sharing your experience with design sprints!
I ran mine, adjusted to my current team and schedule, and must say was really good.
I set mine based on GV's medium articles and videos and I'm considering using the book, how's your experience with it?
BTW, some nice guys built a great app called DUCO for design sprints for iPhone.
Hey Ale! Happy to hear from another Sprinter.
The book is well written, full of real-life cases and with a walkthrough at the end that you can follow day-by-day. I suggest it.
I've seen the app here on DN, it looks very useful but I've never used it yet!
