Event description

Description

John Zeratsky is Bringing the Official Design Sprint Bootcamp to Chicago!

In one action-packed day you'll experience an entire 5-day Design Sprint. You'll get to try the exercises, ask questions, build confidence, and develop muscle memory for running your own sprints. You'll laugh. You'll high-five. You'll leave with new and powerful ways to do better work, faster.

John is a former design partner at GV, where he worked with Jake Knapp to develop the Design Sprint process. Since 2011, he has run more than 150 sprints. John co-authored the Sprint book and he's the editor of Sprint Stories, where hundreds of teams share their experiences with the sprint process.


This Bootcamp is All About Action

John won't just talk at you. During the Design Sprint Bootcamp, you'll put pens to paper, sticky notes to whiteboards, and hands in the air as John leads you through the full 5-day sprint process. And there will be plenty of time for Q&A, so you can learn from John's experience running sprints with Slack, Blue Bottle Coffee, Flatiron Health, Uber, One Medical Group, and many many more.


One Bootcamp, Two Experienced Sprint Leaders

John will be joined by Chris Johnson, Design Lead at Devbridge Group and formerly a designer at Google and YouTube. Chris will be helping to facilitate the event as well as answer questions about building products from Design Sprints.
