Advanced Design Sprint Facilitation - Berlin
A 2-day training that equips future Design Sprint Facilitators with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to lead sprint teams to results.
About this Event

Can you imagine someone teaching you how to ski while sitting comfortably on your couch? Pretty impossible. You can only become a great skier is by sliding down the mountain. Design Sprint facilitation is skill-based, and it requires practice. One cannot become an expert overnight.

We believe in experiential learning and so do our alumni students. Here's what they have to say about it:

This training is for you if you already acquired the theoretical knowledge, meaning: you've read the Sprint book, you've watched an online course, you've joined a Design Sprint intro workshop, you've attended or even organised a design sprint or two. Now, you want to take your innovation skills to the next level and gain more confidence in the way you facilitate this framework.

In this experiential learning journey, you'll learn how to:
  • Onboard and engage your sprint team
  • Guide the sprint team through all 6 phases of a sprint
  • Manage difficult situations and personality types (i.e. skeptics, debaters, time-wasters, power-driven, or rebels)

Additional benefits:
  • Muscle up your mediation skills to help manage difficult group dynamics
  • Increase your influential skills by keeping team members focused on critical discussions
  • Get feedback from seasoned Design Sprint Facilitators during a simulated design sprint run by you

Key topics
  • Design sprint planning
  • Design sprint ground rules & mindset
  • Nonverbal & para-verbal communication
  • Knowing what questions to ask
  • Emotion management
  • Conflict management

  • Decision making, focus & plan of action
