Simlead Product Design Sprint

Compress months of work into just few days.

What is a product design sprint?

A product design sprint is a series of workshops aimed at developing a new product or improving an existing one in the shortest amount of time feasible. Specific issues are identified, solutions are proposed, and a physical prototype is created, which is then tested and validated with real users in real-world settings. A product design sprint allows teams to accomplish what might usually take months in only a few days.

Conventional method: 4 validation steps

The traditional approach requires months or even years to get a product ready for commercial launch. The build phase of a project typically goes on forever as the team becomes disorganized and demoralized.

Design Sprint method: 2 validation steps

By integrating the Simlead Product Design Sprint into your workflow, you can rapidly decide what kind of product to create by getting user feedback in the real world on a concrete, functional prototype.

Why product design sprint?

Product Design Sprint is the most effective technique to see if your value proposition is correct. Design sprints reduce risk at the outset of a project by replacing guesswork and months of effort with immediate feedback and progress. Avoid making large expenditures on unproven concepts. Before investing months and money on something your customers may not want, understand, or purchase, use product design sprint to learn what they think about your new or better product.

Process. How it works

DAY 01

Understand, Align, Sketch

- Define the challenges
- Produce a mass of solutions

DAY 02

Decide, Storyboard

- Curate and vote on best solutions
- Define the prototype with a storyboard

DAY 03


- Build the prototype
- Set up the user tests

DAY 04

User Testing

- Test the prototype with real users
- Use feedback from the testing to create clear next steps

What is the outcome?

A product design sprint produces a realistic prototype that is put to the test by actual users. The prototype is designed to resemble a finished product in appearance and feel. The most significant outcome of a Product Design Sprint, is that we make sense of your customers' feedback and help you develop clear, actionable next steps for refining your product or process.

Do you still have a question about the Product Design Sprint?

When does a design sprint make sense?

A design sprint is always beneficial if your team wants to take on more significant or all-encompassing difficulties; e.g: developing whole new products, features, or structures. When it comes to adjusting small text, layout, or design changes, a design sprint is not appropriate.

Who on my team should participate in the Design Sprint?

A design sprint team should ideally include four to seven members. The team may include a CEO and numerous professionals in marketing, sales, UX design, and development,. In the sprint, Simlead assumes the duties of sprint master, UX designer and prototyper. It's crucial to gather as many different and thorough viewpoints on your product as you can. We challenge the selection of the sprint team collectively throughout the planning stage for the design sprint.

I already have a product. Does a design sprint then make sense?

Definitely! Any methods or exercises employed during the sprint may be applied to both the creation of fresh digital/physical products and the enhancement of current ones. The sprint goal's specific articulation in advance is the only thing that matters in this situation.

What can I develop with a Design Sprint?

The creation of physical products, hardware, apps, SAAS platforms, software applications, B2C & B2B platforms is the obvious emphasis of our design sprint.

Do we need to commit to every day?

No. We just need your participation for the first two days of our sprints because of the way they are set up. On the last day, it is advised to watch user testing in progress.

What happens after the Design Sprint?

You now gain practical knowledge. Your team has the option of continuing where we left off and bringing the solution to market as soon as feasible or performing a second iterative Sprint.

Do you run fully remote Design Sprints?

We do, indeed. The virtual Design Sprint team does not need to have special abilities or expertise with remote work because we're utilizing basic tools. Each activity and tool we use for our remote Design Sprints will be explained to participants as they follow along with the process.

Do you offer Design Sprint training?

Yes, using cutting-edge Design Sprint facilitation approaches, our Design Sprint Training will teach you how to use the most recent version of the Sprint. We customize the training material to your organization's workflow and the demands of your team and product based on our expertise managing Design Sprints. Our training bootcamp is ideal for problems in giant organizations, medium-sized enterprises, or start-ups. All you need is an interdisciplinary team and a proper, pertinent task.
