One Bootcamp, Two Experienced Sprint Leaders

John Zeratsky 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. John will be joined by Jackie Colburn, Minneapolis-based Design Sprint facilitator and design strategist.

This Bootcamp is All About Action

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.
