Is the Design Sprint a one time thing?

Creating a completely new medical device in one year? Easy! When you have hundreds of people working only on this product and unlimited budget... We have none of these two things. And you can take for granted that it is really hard to iterate with hardware. But we did it and we are doing it all the time. Is there something "potentially releasable" every Sprint? Almost never! Do we learn something new about our product every Sprint? Definitely yes! There are many projects shipped to the clients for the first time after one year or more. That's a big problem and there are so many startups falling apart when their products eventually hit the market. Do they work in Scrum? In most cases - yes (and in some cases, they are really good at Scrum). Is it enough? No. I will show you our way to work with this issue.
