Entrepreneurs and leaders face big questions every day: What’s the most important place to focus your effort, and how do you start? What will your idea look like in real life? How many meetings and discussions does it take before you can be sure you have the right solution?
Now there’s a surefire way to answer these important questions: the Design Sprint, created at Google by Jake Knapp. This method is like fast-forwarding into the future, so you can see how customers react before you invest all the time and expense of creating your new product, service, or campaign.
In a Design Sprint, you take a small team, clear your schedules for a week, and rapidly progress from problem, to prototype, to tested solution using the step-by-step five-day process in this book.
A practical guide to answering critical business questions, Sprint is a book for teams of any size, from small startups to Fortune 100s, from teachers to nonprofits. It can replace the old office defaults with a smarter, more respectful, and more effective way of solving problems that brings out the best contributions of everyone on the team—and helps you spend your time on work that really matters.
"Read this book and do what it says if you want to build better products faster." - Ev Williams, founder of Medium, Blogger, and Twitter
"The key to success, often, is building the right habits. But which habits work best? Sprint offers powerful methods for hatching ideas, solving problems, testing solutions--and finding those small, correct habits that make all the right behaviors fall in place." - Charles Duhigg, author of The Power of Habit
"To quote one of my colleagues, "don't get ready, get started." Through hard won experience Jake Knapp and the team at Google Ventures have refined an efficient, hands-on approach to solving your product, service and experience design challenges. Try the book and try a Sprint." - Tim Brown, CEO of IDEO and author of Change By Design --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

We ran two sprints with the client, on two different problems. We solved core usability issues, built shared understanding with the team and exceeded stakeholder expectations.
It is an effective and fun process that anyone can follow, not just designers.
I highly recommend reading this book if you have thorny problems to solve and are looking for a reliable and repeatable method for solving them quickly.
I've seen this book used a few times to run sessions and I've seen people get it totally wrong as well as very right. It isn't fool-proof but it's a great guide.
On the down side, the audible narration is about as irritating as it could be. I find it really hard to listen to the narrator's voice. He reads like it was a coffee advert. Very patronising.
