⚡️ Organizations need to innovate faster than ever, but distributed teams' work can be a tricky challenge. So what about running a fully remote virtual Design Sprint? Sounds crazy? - well, we think that it's the perfect solution.

With the Remote Virtual Design Sprint, we are potentially compressing months of work into a few days, with no travel-time, hotel-reservations, or other restrictions (i.e., travel-bans). Everyone can participate remotely from the comfort of their own home.

Three years ago, it would have been impossible to offer such a service. However, the tools to make Remote Virtual Design Sprints a reality are now here. The Design Sprint community has done a lot of testing and experimenting. Tools such as Miro or Mural have integrated feedback from design sprint leaders to make it suitable for a Design Sprint. So today, thanks to these tools and our experience of running in-person Sprints with more than 60 companies, we are ready to accompany you in your virtual workshops.

Throughout your remote virtual Design Sprint, we will interact with each other in real-time by videoconferencing on Zoom. Mural, a virtual whiteboard on which everyone can contribute, allows us to run practical exercises and keep track of our ideas. A simple piece of paper and a pen will help you capture your sketches which will be shared on the whiteboard as well.

What is the best team for a design sprint?

The key to the success of a Design Sprint is to bring together a small multidisciplinary team of 5 to 7 people. When we carry out the Design Sprint, we ask for undivided attention and active participation during the first three days. We from Design Sprint Ltd. take care of the prototyping and user testing on days 4 and 5. All team members are then reconvened to discover the results of the Sprint either live on day 5, or later while watching the replays.
