What is the Design Sprint?
The Design Sprint is an efficient 4-5 Day process that is essential and most effective for answering challenging product and business-related questions through team alignment, goal-oriented thinking, design, prototyping, and finally testing ideas with customers.
The Design Sprint is a 4-5 Day „Hackathon“. For two groups of people us, and you/your team
Day 1: The challenges and the scope will be defined as well as the goal.
Day 2: is all about deciding what challenges we will prototype.
Day 3: is about building a high-quality prototype.
Day 4: the Prototype will be tested on real users.
After that we can continue individually depending on the feedback and start an iteration sprint, we can start the process of creating the MVP or developing the features.
Outcome: Design Sprint Week is a high-fidelity interactive prototype, tested by real users, and with clear insights on where to go next. This is not just a collection of “wireframes” or a “paper prototype”, it looks and feels like a real product. The simple Design Sprint we offer can be done Remotely.
We run the Design Sprint 2.0

What is the outcome of a Design Sprint?
You will also have a product backlog and documentation with all the things that need to be done after the sprint.
After the sprint you will have a clear idea of the next steps to happen within your team, to take things forward.Mostly we use parts of the design sprint again to iterate, create guidelines and polish the solution to share it.It’s called iteration sprint. After the sprint we handover and present the results.
You will receive Photos of the Sprint and the ideas as well as the Goal.
At digitallab we offer our clients assistance by visiting once a month and prioritize and update the backlog.
