Adapt. March 2020, when Covid-19 took the world by surprise, our team had to gather all their experience of physical design sprint and looked for ways to make it as efficient and enjoyable, but in a remote setting. We worked on a template to allow running 5-day Design Sprints fully virtually. And we are proud to share it with you!

The story: How it became the official remote Design Sprint template

While Steph was designing our template for running 5-day virtual design sprints, at the exact same time, Jake Knapp and John Zeratsky (the creators of the Sprint at GV), were teaming up with Jackie Colburn to write an in-depth guide to run full five-day remote design sprints.

When they saw our canvas, they immediately loved it and asked Steph if he was willing to share it with the world. (Steph took one minute and yelled a big YES!) 
Jake and John invested personally in writing crystal clear instructions, and even added new exercises that don’t appear in the Sprint book but were part of their trainings. Now it’s time to share with you the result of our work: this template works hand in hand with the book and will help you run excellent 100% remote design sprints.

If you have feedbacks or suggestions on how to improve it, don’t hesitate to contact us!
