The Google Design Sprint Methodology* is the innovation method we will use during our sprint.
It can produce results in 5 days for challenges that would normally take up to months to solve. Companies are inspired by a customer-centric innovation process that leads to a minimum viable product (MVP).
Students learn from experts and mentors, experience the process from start to finish, and test their product or service with the target audience.
*About the benefits and outline of a Design Sprint as developed by Google Ventures, visit The Design Sprint — GV.
Teams take a close look at the challenges at each company’s headquarters.
Teams interview stakeholders and customers, then begin to generate their ideas.
Teams develop an MVP, a concept for a minimum viable product, service or system.
Teams test the MVP and get feedback from the target audience.
Teams pitch their MVP to the companies, experts and invited representatives. For each challenge, the jury declares a winner.
