The Remote Sprint Guide is here!

Hey there,

I hope you’re well and holding up okay. Just one thing to share today:
This is a complete guide for how to handle video, whiteboards, voting, facilitation, interviews, and pretty much everything else in a remote Design Sprint. John and Jackie and I have been cranking on this guide for the last three weeks and we think it’s ready for prime time. You can find the whole thing here.
Super big thanks to all the folks who contributed. After the last newsletter we heard from over 100 readers with tips and tactics to share, including folks from places like IDEO and Google and also many small agencies who run Design Sprints all the time. Really awesome how super smart you all are and what cool ideas are being put into action around the world!

We took all that good advice and asked questions and argued among ourselves and then we made some easy decisions and some tough decisions and turned the results into one opinionated how-to guide (which might also be the longest web page on the internet). Should you use Miro or Mural? We have an opinion. Should you use Zoom or Google Meet? We have an opinion. Should you do an icebreaker, and if so which one? We have an opinion. And we have tips for handling every little nuance of online facilitation—all of it thanks to the Design Sprint community.

We’ll keep adding and improving, but we want to get the guide in your hands as soon as possible in case you have the chance to do a remote sprint soon. World’s gone crazy, y'know, so not a moment to waste.

If you use the guide, please let us know how it goes and if you have any additional tips (email We appreciate it!

Thanks, and hang in there.
