We're proud to have played a part in the Design Sprint movement, helping teams around the world move faster and ship better products. But we've decided to sell our Design Sprint Toolbox. Here's why.

Design Sprints & The BTNG Mission

We want to create a world in which every company truly is customer-centric. And so far, how we've done that is:

  1. Being hired by companies to help on a project
  2. Create our own products or services

But if we really want to fulfill our mission, we'll need to make sure more people are able to do what we do.

Design Sprint Challenges

Running a Design Sprint isn't easy. Just to name a few challenges:

  • You need to be able to sell the Design Sprint internally
  • You need a good facilitator
  • You need buy-in from higher-ups
  • You need the right team dynamics
  • The list goes on...

These challenges make it difficult for new Design Sprint teams to get started and be successful.

Introducing The BTNG Design Sprint Toolbox

After running Design Sprints for years, we feel confident to say that we've been streamlining the process with every Sprint we've done. And to make sure our Sprints run smoother and smoother every time we run them... We've created and updated our very own BTNG Design Sprint Toolbox.

In the toolbox, we've documented our most valuable templates, schedules, tools, emails and agendas.

Check out the BTNG Design Sprint Toolbox here.
