Design Sprints are an incredibly efficient way to test ideas and validate assumptions in a single week. The feedback and insights generated from these sprints are the foundation for successful products.
What happens in a design sprint?
For a Design Sprint to be successful, there must be a concise problem statement, an identified user persona, a clear understanding of the competitive landscape, and well-defined metrics for success.
Day 1: Understand
On the first day we revisit the work from the strategy workshop and choose a target challenge based on your riskiest assumption.
Day 2: Generate
With all stakeholders participating, we’ll sketch possible solutions for our challenge, considering it from every angle.
Day 3: Decide
After reviewing the previous day’s work, the product owner will decide which solutions we will prototype and test.
Day 4: Prototype
The design team works to rapidly prototype an interactive version of the chosen solutions that will be tested with users.
Day 5: Test
Having pre-identified users is critical. For testing, we’ll bring five potential customers to test our prototypes while gathering vital feedback.

The Importance of Prototyping
Prototyping is a key component of product development. Watch this short, engaging video as Yeti’s Senior Designer, Mike Godlewski, breaks it down (while eating donuts!).
