What is a Design Sprint?

A Creative HQ Design Sprint replaces guesswork and busy-work with a real, tangible process. Within the five-day sprint, you’ll answer critical business questions by focusing on discovering your problem before coming up with solution concepts, designing, prototyping and testing a solution with real customers.  


Why use a Design Sprint?

A CHQ Design Sprint takes away the risk that you're creating something your customers won't use. It provides a different lens for problem discovery and solution design by removing key players from their BAU, puts them in one space and lets them come up with the best solutions. 

You'll be confident that what you're designing will be based off actual problems your customer experiences and will be validated by those customers at the end of the sprint.

You’ll learn a lot! We’re not just going to tell you what to do – you’ll be doing it yourself, meaning that you can take those lessons back to your workplace.

We recommend bringing in a team representing multiple departments and levels – this helps you come up with innovative solutions and also brings your team together.
