You might be familiar with our Design Sprint Masterclass program, where we teach you exactly how to run Design Sprints, step-by-step.
The Design Sprint Masterclass is a fantastic program for mastering the facilitation of Sprints, and you’ll be fully equipped to facilitate them confidently after taking the program, BUT the Design Sprint is just ONE workshop, and if you’re looking to build a career around facilitation, then it’s VERY important to master the art of facilitation as a stand-alone skill, so you can navigate when things go off-script (which they often do!) and/or when your team/client requests that you help them solve a challenge that the Design Sprint isn’t the best option for.
By knowing how to facilitate in any scenario, you can be flexible and can build a sustainable career as a Facilitator, where you’re not ‘bound’ to one workshop.
I sometimes share a story about a VERY difficult Silicon Valley client we worked with. Long story short, because we ONLY did Design Sprints at that time, we were STUCK when the client demanded some modifications, and when we were faced with a trouble-making-workshop-skeptic.
After this nightmare situation, I went and learned EVERYTHING there was to know about facilitation, so that when we went back to that same tricky client a few years later, we were able to seamlessly navigate whatever they threw at us!
