Sprint Workshops

Find the solution with Sprints!

When your project is mission-critical and you need to rapidly prototype a concept, this intensive workshop reduces the risk and maximises the creative output in just one week!

These design sprint workshops – or ‘sprints’ – are a time-constrained method of solving problems through ideation, prototyping and testing ideas using design thinking to reduce the risk when launching a new product or service. It’s an inclusive, constructive and highly energised workshop built around key benchmarks that systematically refines a concept in real-time.

Sprints go beyond more familiar forms of brainstorming as they allow ideas to be tested on the spot and hone in on the best path forward.

What is a Sprint Workshop?

  • “The Design Sprint is a step by step process for solving big problems and testing new, big, maybe crazy ideas in just 4-5 days” – AJ & Smart
  • “A design sprint is a time-constrained, five-phase process that uses design thinking with the aim of reducing the risk when bringing a new product, service or a feature to the market.” – Wikipedia
  • “The sprint is a five-day process for answering critical business questions through design, prototyping, and testing ideas with customers. Developed at GV, it’s a “greatest hits” of business strategy, innovation, behavior science, design thinking, and more—packaged into a battle-tested process that any team can use.” – GV (Google Ventures)
  • “The Design Sprint is a proven methodology for solving problems through designing, prototyping, and testing ideas with users. Design Sprints quickly align teams under a shared vision with clearly defined goals and deliverables. Ultimately, it is a tool for developing a hypothesis, prototyping an idea, and testing it rapidly with as little investment as possible in as real an environment as possible.” – Google Design Sprint Kit

Our Approach

Rocketfuel uses the best of established methodology and international sprint thinking, but has honed and adapted our approach for creative strategy in our key focus areas of brand and product development.

We build the workshops around your goals and are flexible in terms of group size, which can range between a minimum of 4 and maximum of 11 people. While best results are achieved in a 5-day process, it can also be adapted between 2-5 days based on requirements. Each workshop is expertly moderated to organise thoughts, stimulate ideation and meet daily benchmarks to track progress.
