WORLDCLASS ENGINEER Design Sprints — the Secret to Rapidly Developing Products Customers Actually Want This post will teach you the process of running a design sprint — a method developed by Jake Knapp, a partner at Google Ventures — to solve big problems and test new ideas in just five days. Most teams often invest months, even years, in developing a product or service, only to discover they've built something that no one wants.
