That was a joke
What is this "digg" thing?
It's great that you got one done in your company!
Sprints are for solving big problems, not for run of the mill feature work. I don't think there's any company that operates regularly on that schedule. We've run 20+ sprints with different teams in our company over the past 1.5 years. No two sprints are the same, and we almost never use the entire GV playbook. Rather, we tailor exercises from GV, IDEO, and Luma to fit the needs of the problem we're trying to solve and the design maturity of the product team.
The point of sprints and "design thinking" in general is to get product teams out of the Gartner magic quadrant / feature-train mindset, and instead to approach the challenge from a problem-first perspective.
The important thing is to use sprints as another tool that you can pull at the right time to solve the right kind of problems. They aren't a substitute for long-term discovery/research projects, design iteration, data science, or usability testing.
UXPin is doing some interesting work here. Then there's the old standby – Axure, which has had this for years.
the calculate button is disabled even when all fields are filled in.
I think your overall pricing structure and flow need some work. I'd rethink this approach completely with whoever is in charge of PM.
The flow doesn't make any sense, based on your pricing structure (IMHO). For instance, I can add 20 beacons to my cart but select the BASIC nine beacon plan.
Instead, I would lead with the hardware, and suggest the right software package, based on the beacons added to the cart (though I even question the package model you have here). So you would have a two-part flow.
Also, the font is too small in the plans area. Suggest at least 14-15 pt.
Also, fix positioning the checkout button to the bottom of the screen is unconventional, and likely to be missed (I missed it).
tl;dr no discoverability
The point of grid is to also apply semantic naming to your grid areas. This increases code readability and understanding. Here is a good read for the uninitiated:
