Find your path
The Design Sprint Workshop is a thoughtful assembly of your stakeholders and Praxent design thinking experts who collaborate to solve big problems and validate ideas in a focused, 4-day span. Why should you invest four focused days
Design sprint workshops are a great way to get everyone’s ideas on the table. Sprints are designed to remove personal biases and level the playing field. Your people will work well together while contributing individually. As a result, your business will benefit from cross-discipline ideas, knowledge, and experience across the board.
There is a time for everything — but the design sprint isn’t a time for discussion. The 4-day workshop quickly establishes a productive, problem-solving mindset that values tangible ideas over needless debate. Design thinking techniques are used to draw out, fully explore, and effectively evaluate those ideas.
Do your teams tend to think customer experience problems can’t be solved without supernatural levels of creativity or perfection? Let’s debunk that belief. Your teams have tons of great ideas on ways to improve user experiences across your business. A facilitated design sprint can help everyone align around ideas that warrant serious investment.
You can’t innovate if you never get past the questions that hold you back. Design sprints are about moving forward — not about being right. Defining your goal, curating ideas, building a working prototype, and testing user experiences with real people is the best way to gain insights that lead to competitive advantage.

Four day agenda
We’re expert design sprint facilitators who love to solve complex problems that unlock significant value. Invest in four days with us, and you’ll come away with confident alignment and actionable product insights. Here’s what it looks like.
Day 1: define
We come together on day one to define the challenge, striving to capture as many solution ideas as possible. Setting blockers aside, we build a concept map that dares to ask: “how might we” move towards our goals?
During this day, we go from background concepts to concrete ideas. Activities include SME interviews to deepen the group’s understanding, 4-part sketching to capture ideas, and lightning demos to communicate ideas to the group.
Day 2: Curate
On day two, we align our thinking by carefully curating the group’s ideas. Then, we push our thinking further to find the strongest contenders — and prepare to turn the idea into a working prototype.
Working through rounds of solution presentations, heat map, straw poll, and deciding votes, the group will select the best solution for development. Together, we’ll create a more detailed storyboard and testing flows to validate the new prototype with users.
Day 3: Envision
On day three, the entire Praxent team leaps into action. Back at our offices, we’ll design and build a working prototype based on the chosen solution. Our agile process enables us to turn around a high-fidelity prototype at lightning speed.
While our designers and developers are busy creating the experience, our user research team will find and schedule five user testers who are available to give the design sprint group first-hand insights the very next day.
Day 4: Validate
With Praxent, users don’t have to imagine. Day four allows us to test the prototype with five real users to learn exactly what they think of the experience. User feedback, positive or negative, is the best way to refine solutions until they’re just right.
We’ll create a testing report for you, identifying how users felt, where they had moments of frustration or joy, and how much they valued the experience as a whole. You’ll gain the evidence you need to move forward, course-correct, or refine the solution to build a product users will love.
Gain actionable insights.
The Design Sprint Workshop is a fast, focused way to gain actionable insights on what your business needs to win. In just four days, you will have defined your challenge, ideated concepts, and tested a solution with real users. Ready to go?

Executing your design
Choosing a design sprint facilitation partner is more than buying a service — it’s investing in innovation as a competitive differentiator.

Successful engagements following a design sprint include:
The level of sheer intellect shown in their way of thinking about problems added tremendous value and saved us time. Praxent thought through all issues ahead of time before letting us run into them.
Stakeholders anticipate the visual appeal of the new designs to be above and beyond the current product. Praxent has maintained a concise, clear communication style throughout the engagement. Their expertise allows them to provide useful insight, and their detail-orientation stands out.
Praxent trained us well and gave us all of the skills we need to be successful. The internal UX team is now skilled enough to improve CX on their own. Since working with Praxent, mores users can access the self-service, and call rates have decreased, signifying an improved UX. Praxent’s team was friendly and easy to work with. They’re highly recommended.
The body of work they produced under our circumstances was no joke; they did a fantastic job. Although we had so many stakeholders with varying cultures and priorities, Praxent’s team was helpful in mediating between our partners.
Praxent gives us weekly updates, so we always know where we are. They’ve always hit their dates and goals. I couldn’t have asked for better communication, and the project is exactly what we were expecting it to be. They’ve blown us away with the design, and truly listened to what we and our customers said. It’s a great product that they’re rolling out. It’s going to be a huge game-changer for our company.
We have grown sales by 600% with minimal hiring and the technology Praxent built enabled that. Not only has the technology worked, but working with Praxent has been great too. I consider them to be an extension of my team.
