What I'm Reading: The Sprint Book by Jake Knapp with John Zeratsky and Braden Kowitz

The Design Sprint is a five-day process for solving problems and testing new ideas.

Invented at Google by Jake Knapp, perfected with more than 150 startups at GV, then shared with the world in the bestselling book Sprint.

Three takeaways:

  • Sprint helps with taking ideas, creating a prototype and getting user feedback immediately (well, within 5 days)

  • Running a Sprint allows product teams to quickly validate an idea before heading down the wrong direction.

  • It is an excellent exercise to conduct before developing a big feature set.
