Change starts with people.

People often resist change because they believe they will lose something of value or fear they will not be able to adapt.

One of the six human needs that we all share is certainty. This is a need for safety and security and for knowing how a change will affect us.

We unlock the value of people in teams.

When an organisation has a problem that they cannot solve with internal resources, we unlock the value of teams through following a better approach.

We partner with businesses to execute a plan to work on the pressures that are facing the company and train people on better ways of solving problems as we go.

What is a Sprint?

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

Our role is to lead you through the process so that you are free to solve problems as a team.

1. Understand and define

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

2. Curate and decide

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

3. Prototype

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

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.

Why use Sprints?

“I'd started reading the book and what I found really useful was actually the practical side of it. Having the verbal presentation then backed up with the workshop was very good! ”

[The Note and Vote:] It was very different from what we expected in the sense that it addressed other areas of the business, not just the product.

“I found it so effective to do [learning the Design Sprint] as I learn with activity and it helped embed learning as I went. It was proper learning, rather than training!”
