Good ideas are everywhere, including in your organization.

Today we're getting ready for Part 3 of our #ProblemFraming workshop with Turner Construction, focused on exposing "raw" ideas to senior management.

We're ditching the PowerPoint presentations, as they only create high expectations for a slick, refined idea.

We're removing the well-intentioned gatekeepers from the process who tend to iterate and refine an idea until sometimes it loses its beauty.

And instead, we're allowing for early-stage ideas to shine on their own and trust the leadership team to vet them and get excited about their potential.

How to sell design sprints internally? A 5-step approach.

Most companies are optimized to execute and solve a stated problem. But as they strive for disruptive #innovation, they must find ways to inject and scale #creativity across their organizations.

Having a structured framework for problem finding and problem-solving it's essential during uncertain times. Over the past years, we at Design Sprint Academy, helped many design sprint ambassadors, Innovation Managers, and Product Leads embed #DesignSprints into their organizations.

Here's our 5-step recipe to sell design sprints to the leadership team:
1. Build empathy
2. Find their pain
3. Discover the opportunity
4. Craft your sales pitch
5. Prove the value

Alignment on the problem and embracing different perspectives are critical to any project's success, as they will help project leaders make better decisions and their teams generate more robust solutions. 

Last night we empowered the teams at Amazon to navigate through complexity and unknowns by balancing logic and intuition and establish a shared point of view. 

Here's a sneak peek into our corporate #ProblemFraming training!

This week, Design Sprint Academy hopped on the SAP #devXchallenge Romania! Our expert facilitators run 3 #designsprints in parallel to help solve different challenges around the topics of mobility, sustainability, and of course traveling by train as we are in the EU Year of Rail.

After three days of intense remote collaboration, the prototype is now being built and we're excited to see what the riders will have to say about the three innovative concepts the SAP teams come up with.

We're grateful to be part of the SAP challenge days and instill creative confidence in the teams we're working with. Kudos 🙌 to the SAP organizing team for planting the seeds of change where they are needed the most - Cameron Rouse, Marina Milani de Faria Comar Lolato (she/her), Bogdan Cioc

Moving ideas forward with #ProblemFraming . Last week, we had the pleasure of bringing the problem framing process to the AKQA family, during an in-house remote training and really enjoyed working with a senior group of product designers, strategists, and account directors.

We're now looking forward to seeing all the learnings put into practice!

SAP devX challenge "The EU Year of Rail 2021" meets “Happening Places”

Design Sprints offer problem solvers a chance to design with communities, deeply understand the people they’re looking to serve, and create innovative new solutions rooted in people’s actual needs.

That's why we're "Hoping ON" together with SAP to chart a path towards more sustainable, smart and resilient mobility. We're proud to partner with SAP and empower their #devXchallenge teams use #designsprints to imagine a new future for mobility in #Romania.

We're looking forward to the challenge days!

Design Sprint Retrospective

No matter how successful a #DesignSprint is there’s always room for improvement.

Whether you are new to Design Sprint #facilitation or a seasoned facilitator, you probably realized that no two Design Sprints are the same. Every time you run a design sprint, it feels like a completely new experience, therefore, an amazing learning opportunity. The question is: "How do you capture the lessons learned and make them actionable?".

Since 2016 we've been facilitating design sprints all over the world, helping teams across different industries solve their biggest business challenges. And every single time we had to change, adapt and improve the Design Sprint process so we get great outcomes. We learned that a growth mindset and a good Retro workshop can do miracles!

So, today we're sharing with you some of our in-house secrets on how to run a productive design sprint #retrospectiveworkshop virtually!

Sneak peek - Design Sprint Training

Here's a sneak peek 👀 into our 2-day #DesignSprint training with the teams at Turner Construction Company. We're strong advocates of #reflectivelearning as a way to help participants take a step back from their learning experience, by analyzing what they have learned and how far they have come. In this video, the teams are reflecting on a specific exercise from the sprint: the Long-term goal.

If you also want to learn more about #designsprints and build your facilitator's muscle 💪, join our live online courses in MAY!

There are many moments when innovation leads or product people consider #framing or #reframing a problem:
✔️ Every time they want to solve a business problem and need to gain stakeholder support
✔️ When they are attempting to influence the direction of a project
✔️ When the stakeholder's agenda may interfere with their plan of action
✔️ When they are not sure about where to start or if they are solving the right problem in the first place.

But the sooner they start 🧠 thinking about framing an issue, the better!

Yesterday, we trained the internal teams at Turner Construction Company on framing a business problem and running better meetings with their stakeholders. Together we addressed a broad issue from many angles and identified different factors contributing to a problem.

We're now ready to move into the solution space and identify creative ways to solve the problem. Follow us to see how the #DesignSprint training unfolds.

New to #DesignSprintRetrospective? A #retrospective is a well-known term, especially in Agile / Scrum, and it refers to a meeting where the team reflects on their recent work to improve the process and the way they work together.

At Design Sprint Academy, we took the concept and turned it into a Retrospective Workshop, which we run after each #designsprint.

Coming 🔜 🌟 The Design Sprint Retrogram Template 🌟 - a virtual workshop template to help #Facilitators efficiently highlight opportunities for change and generate meaningful improvements on areas like:
↪ Remote Design Sprint format and schedule (offline vs. online sessions, number of sprint days, daily plan, the team size and structure);
↪ Team collaboration (communication, decision-making, team alignment, engagement, inclusivity, accountability, trust, psychological safety);
↪ Design Sprint Results (the long-term goal, sprint questions, solution sketches, prototype, user testing).

Design Sprint Training

We found design sprints through our own example of a successful failure.

Our Design Sprint journey started late 2015, before the Google Ventures book ‘Sprint’ was published.

With our strong background in building digital products, we decided to help a new client build their own digital product. Much time passes, and we’re ready to launch the new product only to quickly realize it crashes before we can even get it off the ground. Why? Well, we didn’t invest the time in the beginning to identify the right problem, the right user, and the right market needs. This failure led us to our success – discovering design sprints.

We’ve gained expertise in service, product and vision sprints.
