Innovation Sprints

Innovation sprint – accelerate your development through the shortcut to learning

 

The innovation sprint is a battle-tested process for solving any challenge in 1-5 days. Sign up to get hands-on experience with the process and learn how to use the essential innovation tools. This applies no matter which organisation you work for or what type of product or service you offer. 

The course will strengthen your understanding of the concept and methods we use when working with innovation sprints, and you will get the chance to try it out in a hands-on compressed form through the course. You will be equipped to plan and facilitate your own innovation sprint after completing the course. Innovation sprints are a process that originates from the start-up and tech world of Google, but which has been adjusted to a process that can tackle any business challenge.

The language of instruction is English.
