Summary

Entrepreneurs and leaders face big questions every day. How should you be focusing your efforts? What will your idea look like in real life? How do you start? How many meetings and discussions does it take before you can be sure you've got the right solution? Now there's a surefire way to answer these important questions: the sprint.
Created by three partners at Google Ventures, the sprint is a unique five-day process aimed at helping businesses to answer crucial questions and deliver the best results in the least time, allowing the businesses to move on to the next level. It's a 'greatest hits' of business strategy, innovation, behaviour science and design thinking - packaged into a battle-tested process that any team can use.
Jake Knapp created the five-day process at Google, where sprints were used on everything from Google Search to Chrome to Google X. With John Zeratsky and Braden Kowitz at Google Ventures, the team has run more than 100 sprints with start-ups across all kinds of business, including mobile, e-commerce, health care and finance.
Sprint is about arming your business with a process to get problems solved by short-circuiting the endless debate cycle, avoiding groupthink and utilising the people, knowledge and tools that every team already has. It's for companies or groups of any size, from small start-ups to Fortune 100s, from teachers to nonprofits - anyone who has a big opportunity, problem or idea and who needs to get started.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Not ideal for the audio book format

While the topic isn't anything new, seeing examples of how sprints can be used to solve problems was very interesting. The problem, I found, was that it's more of a reference on running a sprint and for that the physical book would be more helpful. There were frequent lists, timetables and tools to use. In an audio
Io book format these were hard to follow. You'd probably need to by the book as well.

Amazing!

A truly great new system. If you like building things and the Lean Startup this book will fit right in.

Stop wasting time and use this system to test assumptions quickly.

Highly Recommended

Good Idea, Not Meant for Audio book Format

The ideas presented in the book are quite good and I believe will help teams validate ideas and find solutions to problems. However, I do not believe that the audio book format is an optimal one for this type of book.
It was hard to keep pace with the progress of the ideas and the references . A paperback or hard cover edition will work better, and I intend to buy one

Dumbed down version of The Lean Startup

Skip if you already read one of the game changing books about taking a scientific approach to eliminate unknowns and validate assumptions such as The Lean Startup, Hacking Growth, etc. This book attempts to do the same, but less neurons were involved at writing ita.

Skip if you haven't read any of those books and go and read them instead.

Read if this book was a present/requisite or you are in no mood/capacity to read a more in depth take on the same topic or simply if you are not into science and prefer a more anecdotal approach.
