Design Sprint: How to start?

Once the challenge is defined and the multidisciplinary team is in place, time must be set aside for the project, with immersion and agendas blocked. It is also essential to determine a facilitator for Design Sprint to lead the meeting, synthesize the discussions and get the project moving.

Is Design Sprint for all kinds of digital projects?

Definitely not. If your team is developing a new product and the goals and solutions are already clear to the company, maybe Design Sprint is not applicable. More than practice, Design Sprint proposes the Discovery phase; that is, if your business idea needs something more tactile and or if you are still confused in its definition and scope, Design Sprint can help. :)
