Accelerate product development exponentially while decreasing risk
Traditional product development process take months or years to go from from concept to testable prototype. If the prototype proves unsuccessful, hundreds of thousands of dollars in time and effort are wasted. To stay competitive, companies today must launch successful, innovative products quickly without wasting resources. With a Design Sprint, you can test a prototype in just five days, accelerating product development exponentially while decreasing risk.
I help companies and organizations solve their most important business challenges using design thinking.

I worked at Google and practiced this process on the Gmail team.
I’ve also participated in or run design workshops with teams at these organizations.
I've been practicing Google Ventures style Design Sprints for over five years under the mentorship of the author, Jake Knapp. I even participated in the first ever Design Sprint with the CustomMade and the Google Ventures team in 2012. I've run sprints with companies and teams in a variety of industries including life science, finance, and consumer software. If you're excited about getting your organization to follow the principles in the book Sprint, then I can help you and your organization.
