There's a reason big companies like Google and Cisco are using the Design Sprint process to innovate quickly and get more done (in four days!)
Design Sprints are focused and hands-on. This process gives your team a set of tools to quickly identify and prioritize a current problem or challenge, build a test solution, and get it in front of sample users for feedback (again in four days).
Design Sprints help companies with substantial problems, not a small win or a 'nice to have.'Anything that has a big impact, or is time sensitive. Any place where teams feel 'stuck'. Anything that requires alignment across teams. Things like:
Validating a new product or service
Solving a problem with an existing offering
Eliminating a bottleneck in an internal process or
Being at a 'fork in the road'
How to generate more customer engagement
Testing customer interest
Testing a business model (for example, subscription vs. tiered package)
Something that impacts a number of departments
A 'messy' problem
Something that might cost a lot if you get it wrong
