INNOVATION SPRINT
WHAT ARE INNOVATION SPRINTS?

Our globalized world is spinning ever faster. Complex challenges arise anew every day.

Innovative solutions are in demand. But how does innovation succeed? How can companies fully exploit their innovation potential based on the skills of their employees, their core competencies and their brand values?

We are convinced that in every company there are good approaches for the “next big thing”.

However, many organizations have in common that they do not have a clear answer to the question of the right process.

This is where the Innovation Sprints come in: As compact online formats, they deliver concrete, creative and strategic innovations. All is set within a defined time frame and has a clear structure and moderated process.

An Innovation Sprint is innovation on a new level.

FOR WHOM ARE THE INNOVATION SPRINTS?

Innovation Sprints are aimed at entrepreneurs, decision makers, professionals and teams from the fields of business development, strategy, marketing and branding. In particular, an Innovation Sprint is the preferred method for all:

● who are comprehensively dealing with how their company or business unit can be

innovative and successful in the future and who need support with the process, structure and methodology.

● who have a very specific question on a particular topic from the areas of New Work, New Leisure and New Identity.

● who are looking for new impulses, innovative approaches or a strategic creative partner to strategically lead their project to success.

The format is for those who like to work co-creatively and in sparring.

HOW IS THE INNOVATION SPRINT STRUCTURED?

Our Innovation Sprints always consist of an interactive workshop part and a strategic conceptual part. Depending on the scope and complexity of the issue, several innovation workshops and concept phases can be combined.

Innovation
Workshop

Period 1-2 weeks

In the online innovation workshop, we focus on an individual question. We work together in short, focused workshops to be maximally productive. Before and during the workshops, we have an open exchange to quickly get to the core of the challenge. In this way, we identify initial “Quick Wins” together and point out long-term solutions.

Innovation
Paper

Period 1-2 weeks

Even the best workshops are useless if the points discussed are not put into practice. Therefore, the participants receive a structured documentation of the results after the workshop. Moreover, they have access to the online workshop platform and receive specific recommendations for the next steps.

1.
SCOPING AND PREPARATION

In a first telephone or video call, we determine together where the innovation sprint should start and schedule the whole process. Based on this call, we prepare the workshop and put together the right team with the appropriate expertise.

2.
INTERACTIVE
ONLINE SESSION

In the next step, we work with a collaboration platform to find solutions for the individual problem. We recommend that all the relevant stakeholders on the client side are integrated in the sessions.

3.
WORKSHOP DOCUMENTATION
Immediately after the workshop (usually 1-2 working days), the participants receive a documentation of the workshop results. In addition, the participants get access to the online workshop platform for another 7 days to make additions or involve other team members.
4.
SPECIFIC
RECOMMENDATIONS

In order to move quickly from the initial approaches to implementation, a concrete recommendation for action is drawn up within a short period of time (usually max. 5 working days). Depending on the task, this can be a concrete project process for a quick realization of individual ideas or a long-term structured innovation process.
