"I've always been impressed by how effective Design Sprints are at helping teams solve problems, learn faster, and build better products, so I am very happy to have completed the AJ&Smart Design Sprint Masterclass to level up my facilitation skills, understand the Design Sprint process more deeply, and how I can apply the methods from it in my day to day work."

Sonja
Sayer

"Since becoming a Product Manager I’ve needed to upskill in several categories, but of all of the skills I’ve been building, I believe that the facilitation of design thinking has been the most essential. So, I educated myself and now I'm certified to facilitate design thinking practices that create and test new product concepts in a matter of days, and I can do it in-person or remotely, though I’ve already been practicing on the job for some time. Thanks for the education AJ&Smart Jonathan Courtney Dee Scarano Jake Knapp (and others behind the scenes who produce the content, host Q&As, make YouTube and Instagram content, etc.) and the surrounding learning community."

"A huge Thank You to AJ&Smart for creating this exceptional Masterclass and online community. We’ve witnessed how the Design Sprint 2.0 approach can rapidly solve complex problems for our clients, compressing months of work into a few days. But, what do I love most about the Design Sprint methodology?
✅ It is Inclusive: Each voice and idea on the team is heard
✅ An Effective Framework: You do not need to be creative to participate
✅ Work Together, Alone: Enables you to think deeply as an individual, and come together as a team to share and vote.

Thank you to Dee Scarano, Jonathan Courtney, Jake Knapp, for sharing your knowledge, tips, templates, and tricks for more effective design sprints."

The Design Sprint is a weeklong workshop which aims to solve problems or create product concepts in just 4 days. The ROI is almost unquantifiable: in the work produced, in lessons learned, and the speed in which it happens—but also as a powerful motivator for a team, while fostering shared ownership.

"Last Thursday we ran a two hour decision jam. Since I have permission and the purpose and client are obscured I thought I’d share the outcome here. I owe so much to the book Sprint and the generosity of AJ&Smart. For the sake of selling this jam we called it a Design Jam. It’s basically the solution sketching part of the full sprint squeezed bet-ween the beginning and ending steps of the decision jam. 

The problem, other than the design issue we were tackling, was the slowness of decisions and constant iterations we were building to accommodate their brilliant Chief Marketing Officer. The project was poorly scoped. We warned our client of the problem that they weren’t forecasting how large this project was (we are subcontracting to a development consultancy) and we all prepared for the eventual chaos. 

With the right communication and gentle reminders we were able to take advantage of the situation with the full support of our client and the business that hired us. The result was very positive.

I’m in Human Resources, and we’ve been working on program designs using the design sprint. I’ve been self-taught using all the open source info out there, and of course AJ&Smart YouTube videos.

However, this week, I ran my first design sprint, based on the content from the Masterclass and WOW… my confidence, the outcome, the participant experience was all wonderful. AJ&Smart - y’all have done us all wonderful service by offering this class, and I’ll be referencing it many times over.

So, y’all. Buy it. Happy Friday, Happy Sprinting!"

"After 25 years working as a design agency, I finally closed the gap between creative design and viable business solutions that work. I’m entirely convinced about the design sprint which I’ve learned at AJ&Smart."

Gilang andi
PRadana

"Stepping up the game by getting officially certified by the #DesignSprint creator himself: @jakeknapp and everyone at @ajsmartdesign! (sending tons of high fives to you guys!!!)

I think Design Sprint is a great way to apply proven design methods to the industry where we have to keep up with the time demand. It is a structured step-by-step innovation process started at Google Ventures to help align teams, explore big challenges, define, and validate solutions in just 4 days, which has helped many companies like Lego, Uber, Netflix, and Facebook, in designing their products that you are using now.

The masterclass is perfect if you want to level up your facilitation. The contents are fun, entertaining, insightful, easy to digest, and at the same time teaches everything you need to start facilitating design sprints."

So, y’all. Buy it. Happy Friday, Happy Sprinting!"

"After 25 years working as a design agency, I finally closed the gap between creative design and viable business solutions that work. I’m entirely convinced about the design sprint which I’ve learned at AJ&Smart."

"Stepping up the game by getting officially certified by the #DesignSprint creator himself: @jakeknapp and everyone at @ajsmartdesign! (sending tons of high fives to you guys!!!)

I think Design Sprint is a great way to apply proven design methods to the industry where we have to keep up with the time demand. It is a structured step-by-step innovation process started at Google Ventures to help align teams, explore big challenges, define, and validate solutions in just 4 days, which has helped many companies like Lego, Uber, Netflix, and Facebook, in designing their products that you are using now.

The masterclass is perfect if you want to level up your facilitation. The contents are fun, entertaining, insightful, easy to digest, and at the same time teaches everything you need to start facilitating design sprints."

"I just finished the Masterclass and holy hell* was it great! Thank you. I’ve run a dozen or so sprints in the past (all in-house) and this course gave me so much new useful information. I’m excited to get out there and start selling sprints. I’ll add some notes and questions I wrote while watching in the comments.

* I’m in America, so I edited out all the swear words 😉"

"I used the resources you provided as a basis for creating and running an event with 9 parallel design sprints at once. It was so well received that we have scheduled two more in the next six months. A big thanks to you guys (and Jake) for the inspiration and guidance along the way!”
"Excellent course. I love the AJSMART silly humor alongside great training. The community and availability of the team to answer questions is a definite differentiator.

"This was the best design course I have ever done before!"
"Masterclass material is fantastic. The course curriculum or even the process itself is very customizable. Thanx so much for doing this!"

"Just keep on going guys! You rock and it was all really helpful for my career AND for me as a person."
"Super thought out and well presented course that’s easy to follow and dip back into when needed...Nice work you guys. Pretty rockstar team you have there.”
"Amazing masterclass, I'm excited to do more design sprints in the future"
"Adding this to my professional identity and brand has been a great advantage to me as a UX/product designer, in terms of my ability to speak to the process, use the process and my work, and act as a resource to others. The community is also incredibly helpful and one of the most valuable parts of the experience for me. I would love to see more community building opportunities developed :)”
"Hi team! Thank you so much for a life-changing training. I owe you a video testimonial and want to continue to be a champion for this amazing group."

"You rock, guys!"

"Facilitator tips were very helpful!"
"You're doing really good work on the design sprint. It has grown over the years and now there are many different formats based on the design sprint and facilitating workshops has gotten a different dimension thanks to the design sprint."
"I took the course to add on to my UX training I do right now during the forced covid19 holiday and to improve on my skillset and grow as a designer in general. To improve my experiences during the design sprint masterclass I would like to see additional demo examples to get a better impression on different aspects and approaches besides the big tech company cases. Overall I am very happy with the course."

"This masterclass helped me a lot. Thank you so much, AJ&Smart - please keep doing what you do best: educating and helping designers to grow"
