What is the Design Sprint?

For 5 consecutive – and intensive – days, you will develop your idea, surrounded by experts from all fields of digital technology: from infrastructure administrators to web editors, including designers, programmers and project managers.

The workshops take various forms: diagramming, discussion, inspiration, investigation, analysis, synthesis, voting, prototyping and testing. A game plan serves as the basis for the sprint, but flexibility is welcome depending on the varying challenges of the projects.

The workshops are ideally all carried out in our offices so that we can easily have access to the various Libeo specialists, if necessary.

5 major stages, 5 days

And at the end of the week…

You will have in hand all the elements necessary to resolve your problem:

  • A clear and common vision of the problem and the issues
  • Different avenues for innovative solutions
  • The diagram of the most relevant solution (sketch and storyboard)
  • A prototype of the solution
  • The results of user tests carried out on the prototype

You will therefore be able to embark on the complete development of the solution with a clear vision and minimal risks.

Why sprint?

We choose our partners for their digital challenges, for unique projects that have an impact in their industry. Our clients understand that to stand out, you have to dare and create new solutions, truly adapted to the specific reality of the organization and its customers. Not necessarily reinventing the wheel, but accepting the fact that a company is unique, and that it is thanks to this uniqueness that it can grow in its market.

Yes, but…

To create these digital tools, for our clients to truly stand out in their market, we cannot simply adjust the design of a generic solution a little. We can’t ask serious companies to write us a blank check either.


We took the time to analyze 10 years of digital projects carried out by our team. We extracted the success factors of the most recognized projects, as well as the errors that led certain projects to less good results. The observation was striking: the desire for innovation, creativity, alignment with the real needs of organizations and the sharing of a common vision by all stakeholders make successful projects.

That’s why we created and tested a unique design methodology, adapted to digital, and we made it our guarantee of success.

An astonishing proposal

This is exactly what we offer you.

An intensive week of structured workshops surrounded by all the experts necessary for the design of a digital project. At the end of these workshops, you will have a clear and precise strategic and field vision, a game plan ready to be put into motion.

Based on an approach used since 2002 by Google Venture, the Design Sprint has been tested to solve hundreds of problems. We simply adapted it to our context and that of our clients.

A logical proposition

It’s simple: digital projects that do not achieve their objectives have the choice of:

  • A lack of technical realism
  • A concept ill-adapted to digital reality
  • An unrealistic budget
  • An impossible deadline to meet
  • A vision that is too down to earth
  • Too abstract a vision

To ensure your digital project will be strong and achievable, we created the Design Sprint.

A solid guarantee: pay by result

Yes, we guarantee every day of the sprint. If at the end of a workshop day you are not satisfied with the progress or you do not see the added value of the work accomplished, you keep the deliverables and only pay the balance of the workshops completed, less the current day.

We want our method to propel you faster, further. We have no interest in forcing you to complete a process that you no longer believe in.

It’s as simple as that.
