Solve complex business problem in less than 5-days with a battle-tested process
If your job can survive a 5-day vacation, it will thrive after a 5-day Design Sprint!
A Design Sprint is a rigorous 3-to-5 day facilitated innovation cycle, where up to 7 – 12 cross-functional team members deep dive and immerse themselves to solve a complex business challenge, using a battle-tested process. It significantly shrinks project budgets, timelines by selecting the right problem to solve. The team accelerates solution development and decreases risks by testing a prototype and getting actionable feedback in just five days. It fosters radical collaboration to set your team on a path to achieve long-term goals most effectively and efficiently.
This workshop is for participants who are prepared to work hard in an intense, time-boxed, collaborative setting.
We have run tailored innovation sessions with multiple-startups. Our methodology is based on Design Sprint: A Practical Guidebook for Building Great Digital Products, by Richard Banfield, Trace Wax, and C. Todd Lombardo; Google Venture’s book Sprint: How to Solve Big Problems and Test New Ideas in Just Five Days by Jake Knapp, John Zeratsky, and Braden Kowitz; and Marketers Touchpoint’s internally tried and tested tools.

What are the possible outcomes from a Design Sprint session?
The possible outcomes are:
Outcome # 1: All your hypotheses are validated. Great, you can now move on to build the final solution.
Outcome # 2: Limited success. Only a few of your hypotheses got validated. You gain greater clarity to make necessary course corrections.
Outcome # 3: An efficient failure. You just saved hundreds of thousands of dollars in time and effort (months of design, engineering, development and deployment costs). It’s time to go back and deep dive into your customer needs and problems.
