RedRock is an early practitioner of 'Design Sprints' pioneered by Google Product Teams. It is a unique constraints-driven approach that accelerates a team's understanding of the user behavior and results in actionable solutions and insights. Regardless of what the over-arching project methodology is (Agile-Scrum, Agile-Kanban or Waterfall), design sprints help us learn fast and learn often.
