Design is transforming business.

Design-led businesses correlate to higher revenue growth and higher returns to shareholders, according to McKinsey.

While there’s no single way to lead with design, it requires strategic experience designers. They are the drivers that make design-led companies work today.

Business transformation starts with people.

According to the State of the Global Workplace report in 2018, 85% of employees are not engaged at work. The economic consequences of this global "norm" are approximately $7 trillion in lost productivity.

Redesigning how people work to improve that engagement can therefore have a massive impact within a business.

What is a Sprint?

The Sprint is a step-by-step process for answering critical business questions through design, prototyping, and validating ideas.

Defining

1. Understand and define

Together, we understand the long term goal, define the challenges and produce a mass of solutions.

Choosing

2. Curate and decide

We curate and vote on the best solutions together, deciding what should be in the prototype with a storyboard.

Reviewing

3. Prototype

Once we know what we are designing, we create the prototype and setup the user test scenarios.

Interview

4. Validate and learn

Testing the prototype with real people, we then use the feedback to create clear next steps in the form of a roadmap.
