What are Innovation workshops?

Innovation workshops or creative problem solving sessions enable business to rapidly prototype products, solve intractable problems or simply establish the next steps – risk free.

There are many Design Thinking methodologies in existence but we have found that the Design Sprint format and workshops grounded in these techniques, have the best and most rapid outcomes.

During Covid-19 we have also taken steps to enable our workshops to be conducted remotely, maintaining the collaborative nature and ensuring the same strong results.

What is Design Sprint ?

Design Sprint is a 5 day process for validating ideas and solving big challenges through prototyping and testing ideas with customers.

It was developed at Google Ventures by design engineers, including Jake Knapp, and was perfected across their portfolio of start-ups.

Now some years later, the Design Sprint has been adapted, adopted and used across thousands of innovative businesses across the globe.

What does a 5 day Design Sprint look like?

Monday

Determine the problem and and choose a key area to focus the sprint upon.

Tuesday

Collaboratively sketch solutions to the focus of the problem being solved.

Wednesday

Democratically vote for and then storyboard the best solution to the problem.

Thursday

Using the fully finalised storyboard, develop a basic prototype.

Friday

Test the prototype with the target audience & understand how it works.
