A Google Design Sprint:
Design thinking & Design Sprints are a set of tools and processes thing bring cross disciplinary minds (usually non-designers) with different skill sets into the design process to help us achieve our goals.
These tools help you involve the stakeholders and/or clients into the creative process thus, creating a shared ownership of the solution. This helps avoid being told what to do from a stakeholder/client. Remember the "swoop & poop."
