The team at GV (Google Ventures) has graciously published a fabulous book, "Sprint," in which Jake Knapp with John Zeratsky and Braden Kowitz comprehensively explain their Design Sprint Methodology. It's a five-day process that spans from Monday to Friday. Design Sprint Events or Activities are respectively Understand-Diverge-Decide-Prototype-Validate. This presentation focuses on Event 1, which is "Understand."
In this presentation, the visual tool of the Design Sprint (DS) Map is used to summarize "Understand" tasks as a visual checklist. In addition, the DS Map is used to present a worksheet that is used to visually collect, organize, select, and test (C.O.S.T.) ideas during a Design Sprint. Included in the presentation are three case studies that illustrate how the "Understand" activity is used on Day (Event) 1 of the 5-Day Sprint.
