Remote Design Sprint

Advancing and implementing entrepreneurial projects as a team - decentralized, remote and networked

More than just an innovation method

Over the last five years, we have successfully applied design sprints to a wide range of challenges in over 200 innovation projects with start-ups, mid-sized companies and Fortune 500 companies. We have seen and learned a lot about what works in practice and what doesn’t.

Program modules

Context Workshop

Every project starts with good preparation and a common understanding of the challenges and goals of all relevant stakeholders. From conviction and experience we adapt each sprint to the individual needs and contexts of our project partners.  We help to put together suitable team members, select tools and methods and, if necessary, activate our international partner network.

Remote Design Sprint

In the sprint, our coaches accompany the team, help them focus on the essentials, give methodical impulses and help with the structuring of ideas and visual preparation. Our experience shows that four to five full days divided into attendance phases and development phases achieve the best results.

Add-ons
In order to guarantee a successful sprint, we actively support the implementation beyond moderation, for example by developing UX prototypes, user research or by accompanying the implementation.

Our methodolgy

We use different methods from the agile start-up world, be it design thinking, lean start-up or business modelling. In addition, we work with the Entrepreneurial Spiral, a self-developed framework that covers the central tasks of everyone who wants to bring something new into the world.

At its base, the essential questions of an entrepreneurial project are answered: Is there an opening in the market, a vision or a trend that make my idea look promising? Can I offer and keep a value proposition that my customers love? And how do I manage to implement my idea strategically and sustainably?

In combination with our video-based Innovation Kit, all team members can also independently supplement their practical experience with theory to further anchor the methods used.

About us – the team

We have been working for years with a wide variety of companies, teams and individuals to develop new products and services.

Our focus is on empowerment and support. We act as entrepreneurial coaches who contribute their experience and methodological competence to the projects we accompany. We have founded our own companies, helped build innovation labs and taught entrepreneurship at universities.

Remote philosophy

Especially in times of social distancing, home office and collaboration across locations, it is important to promote human potential and network through technology.

Based on our experience as entrepreneurs*, coaches and mentors of successful teams and companies, we transfer the most valuable elements of interpersonal interaction in project work into virtual space. Our remote formats include check-ins, warm-ups, impulse sessions, focused work and reflection phases as well as the use of digital tools and virtual workspaces such as Miro, Mural, Zoom and Microsoft Teams. Without travel expenses and room bookings we bring teams together in virtual workspace.

We look forward to hearing from you and discussing whether and how the format can help you achieve your goals.
