Design Sprints

Streamline your next service or project in the library with a Design Sprint. A Design Sprint is a week or two week long series of workshops — meaning sticky notes and sketches — that libraries and other organizations run internally to brainstorm and test out new designs and services. From web design to implementing new services or products, Design Sprints can get you from idea to implementation successfully and succinctly.

​During this introduction to the concept, ​Michael Schofield will teach you the process popularized by Jake Knapp, John Zeratsky, and Braden Kowitz (all from Google Ventures) in their book Sprint – because it really is one of the best ways to perform one of these. Design Sprints are incredibly useful in libraries, who are time and budget-constrained, but need to innovate or adapt existing services to respond to their patrons’ needs. ​
