What are Design Sprints?
A four day process to solve complex business challenges and test out brave new ideas.
A Design Sprint uses a step-by-step process which allows your team to work together collaboratively and test new ideas.
It is a powerful process and the great thing is that it works whether you are a startup or a large organisation.
In a design sprint you have the right people come together to build, test and learn and make real progress. Put simply, with a sprint you can build better products or services, faster.
WHY A NAKED AMBITION DESIGN SPRINT?
We run our design sprints using the best facilitation and design thinking tools and processes available.
Through careful planning, helping you select the right big challenge to bring into the sprint, curating the best team and having a guided process, we can make your sprint an enjoyable and productive experience for everyone involved.
THE PILLARS OF EVERY DESIGN SPRINT
Working together, alone. An efficient and democratised way of working, allowing everyone to work towards the same goal without discussing what they are doing until the end.
Making ideas tangible. Removing interpretation by visualising what you need to talk about. Having something tangible to help you to focus the discussion.
Starting is better than being right. Going from one exercise to the next is more important than making everything perfect. Stopping to second guess if we are right or not is going to kill the momentum and we want to avoid this.
Not relying on creativity. In a sprint, the process allows for creativity but it doesn’t rely on creativity. It has a framework to allow creative solutions to be identified.
5 Reasons You need Design Sprints
We engaged Naked Ambition to deliver our high profile innovation program, the CEO Think Tank.
Both, Fiona and Nigel, delighted us in every interaction; always supportive of our ideas and truly listening to our expectations, helping us turn this into a bigger and better program for 2018.
As design-thinking experts and innovators, they totally own the room at every facilitation session. Our participants love them, and so do we!
I was absolutely thrilled with the innovative Design Thinking program that Nigel and the Naked Ambition co-designed with us for our students at Ormond College. The 8 week course was hugely popular, it had an excellent attendee rate. Feedback from the students was that not only did they feel engaged and get learn important new skills and mindsets to prepare them for their future careers in modern workforce – but they had fun too!
Naked Ambition listened to us and were able to create a tailored training program that really worked for our people – the resulting boot-camp was jam-packed, fun and great learning experience. We’ve had fantastic results too – many of our people are now confident using design thinking techniques and are applying them to all sorts of problems and ideas.
