Design Sprints and Idea Jams
When an organisation has a specific problem, the outside perspective of an expert who knows how to drive innovative thinking and employ Design Thinking practises can help to stimulate ideas and achieve significant progress.
That's why in addition to delivering training that inspires a sustainable culture of innovation, we also deliver facilitated Design Sprints and Idea Jams for teams looking to solve specific challenges or overcome roadblocks.
Offered both on-site at your own premises or in our purpose-designed innovation space in Geelong, these events typically occur over one day or three to five days and employ G2 Innovation's Design Thinking toolset to enable rapid progress on your complex challenges.
Who are they ideal for?
Contrary to common belief, Design Sprints are not just for developing products. They are also fantastic for solving complex organisational and business challenges, especially those with multiple stakeholders.
G2 Innovation have delivered Design Sprints and Idea Jams for Councils, Government Departments, UI and UX teams, Manufacturers, Service providers and FMCG groups.
If you need to overcome roadblocks efficiently and effectively, but have limited time, then these events are a great way to achieve impactful results in a very short time-frame.
The one-day Idea Jam
Our one-day Idea Jam gives your team a burst of dynamic thinking and creativity as well as new and enhanced perspectives on your challenges. Idea Jam's focus on framing the problem to be solved and generating break-through ideas. You will finish the day armed with powerful insights into your users and your problem, a range of new ideas and the process and motivation to keep moving forward.
THE ONE-DAY DESIGN SPRINT TASTER
Our taster sessions are designed to train your team in the skills required to run their own Design Sprints, whilst also achieving palpable progress on their project or challenge. By providing shorter turn-arounds and enforcing quick thinking, you not only have the opportunity to see rapid progress on your projects, you also learn to apply a range of tools and best-practise Design Sprint methodologies.
The three to five day Design Sprint...
Our multi-day Design Sprints take place over 3-5 consecutive days with the actual length determined by your needs and available time. These events cover each stage of the Design Thinking process in depth and detail. At the end of a multi-day sprint, your team will have the kind of tangible and tested results that in normal business circumstances would usually take months to achieve.
During your event, your team will participate in:
- Immersion and discovery
- Framing the problem to solve
- Generating ideas for solving the problem
- Selecting the ideas to move forward
- Creating prototypes
- Testing prototypes with users
- Analysing the test findings
What we provide...
In addition to providing a facilitator who is an expert in Design Thinking, trends and co-creative innovation, prior to your sprint we will immerse ourselves in your industry and your problem, ensuring that we are ready to tackle the complexity of your challenge and offer up new perspectives. We'll then combine our knowledge and expertise with yours, to generate and develop robust, exciting and informed solutions.
Whatever your challenge is, we're ready and waiting to help you solve it.
