A design sprint addresses that shortfall through a set of activities that turn an “idea” into something that has a greater chance of seeing the light of day and succeeding in the marketplace.
Grounded in a deep understanding of the relevant business sector it is geared to produce an output that is not only user-centric but vetted for tangible business impact.
Design Sprints are a great tool to insert into your innovation program. They are well suited because they are lightweight and deliver infectious outcomes.
It’s a repeatable methodology that works seamlessly with a well-implemented agile operating model, a key element in building successful innovation into a core capability of an organization.
We leverage a combination of design thinking methods with sprints and business innovation canvases curating the approach for each partner we co-create with.
During the design sprint workshops, we align stakeholders around a defined challenge and rapidly prototype and test realistic solutions with real users.
Every sprint ends with an actionable to-do. One week of work could lead to a year’s worth of solutions, features, and ideas.
Getting timeline and budget numbers help you identify potential trade offs, shaping the core experience while providing visibility into the costs of the potential long term roadmap.
