How to Solve Big Problems and Test New Ideas in Just Five Days

Racing to Solve Problems

by David Meyer

The authors detail their Sprint process for turning ideas into testable prototypes.


You couldn’t find three guys who do a better job of bringing today’s spirit of finding and applying efficient problem solving to life than Jake Knapp, John Zeratsky and Braden Kowitz. As the pace of change accelerates, even the best ideas have little time to gestate. In that hurried atmosphere, businesspeople must identify, polish, map and test new ideas quickly and thoroughly. In a company such as, for example, Google, nobody has six months to find out if something works. The next idea is already bulleting down the pipeline.
