What is this?
Short term remote sprints are a compressed version of the longer design sprints. This is ideal for groups with limited time and resources who need to see some progress on an idea.
What’s the outcome?
It’s a quick way to answer critical questions. Sprints help determine the direction of your organization by building consensus as a group and working toward a shared vision.
