Product description


Read this book and do what it says if you want to build better products faster.
- Ev Williams, founder of Medium, Blogger, and Twitter

Sprint teaches you a novel process for solving really thorny problems in just 5 days. It's full of helpful, entertaining stories that will make it easier for you to succeed. What more, exactly, would you demand from a book? I wish all business books were this useful.
- Dan Heath, co-author of Made to Stick, Switch, and Decisive

The key to success, often, is building the right habits. But which habits work best? Sprint offers powerful methods for hatching ideas, solving problems, testing solutions--and finding those small, correct habits that make all the right behaviors fall in place.
- Charles Duhigg, author of The Power of Habit

To quote one of my colleagues, "don't get ready, get started". Through hard won experience Jake Knapp and the team at Google Ventures have refined an efficient, hands-on approach to solving your product, service and experience design challenges. Try the book and try a Sprint.
- Tim Brown, CEO of IDEO and author of Change By Design

"Every business leader I know worries about the same thing: Are we moving fast enough? The genius of Jake Knapp's Sprint is its step-by-step breakdown of what it takes to solve big problems and do work that matters with speed and urgency. A sprint is a cure for what ails companies in an ever faster world."
--Beth Comstock, vice chair of GE
