Sprint offers a transformative formula for testing ideas that works whether you’re at a startup or a large organization. Within five days, you’ll move from idea to prototype to decision, saving you and your team countless hours and countless dollars. A must read for entrepreneurs of all stripes.” —Eric Ries, author of The Lean Startup

From three partners at Google Ventures, a unique five-day process for solving tough problems, proven at more than a hundred companies.

Entrepreneurs and leaders face big questions every day: What’s the most important place to focus your effort, and how do you start? What will your idea look like in real life? How many meetings and discussions does it take before you can be sure you have the right solution?

Now there’s a surefire way to answer these important questions: the sprint. Designer Jake Knapp created the five-day process at Google, where sprints were used on everything from Google Search to Google X. He joined Braden Kowitz and John Zeratsky at Google Ventures, and together they have completed more than a hundred sprints with companies in mobile, e-commerce, healthcare, finance, and more.

A practical guide to answering critical business questions, Sprint is a book for teams of any size, from small startups to Fortune 100s, from teachers to nonprofits. It’s for anyone with a big opportunity, problem, or idea who needs to get answers today.

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 11, 2016 – As designer Knapp recounts in the preface to this helpful business guide, he spent years feeling unhappy at work; most of his time was being spent on the least important things. Then he went to work at Google, which encourages focusing on the work that matters most. In the process, he learned important lessons about where the best ideas come from in particular, that nothing forces focus like a deadline. Knapp and coauthors Zeratsky and Kowitz go on to describe the one-week "sprint" process that they use at Google Ventures to help startups. On Monday you map out your process, on Tuesday you sketch out competing solutions, on Wednesday you pick the winning strategy, on Thursday you create a realistic prototype, and on Friday you test your idea with your target customers. The authors walk readers through assembling small teams, learning quickly, using all of your tools, and learning from test cases (including Blue Bottle Coffee and One Medical Group). This workbook is a solid guide to getting unstuck and generating your next great idea.
