The Design Gym Sprints: Work better together.

TDG SPRINTS

What is a TDG Sprint?

TDG Sprints are strategy and innovation projects designed to help leaders move quickly, creatively, and collaboratively in environments that are volatile, lean, and fast moving (kind of like right now).

A Proven Formula for High Performance Projects:
  • A hand selected team of 6-12 cross-functional people
  • A well-framed objective that’s measurable and specific
  • An iterative process that blends design thinking and agile
  • An accelerated timeline of 4 – 12 weeks
  • Expert facilitation and coaching from 3 TDG strategists

TDG SPRINT OPERATING PRINCIPLES

DE-RISK WITH DATA

We validate (or bust!) assumptions by infusing data into decision making moments, from insights to investments.

PROTOTYPES OVER PRESENTATIONS

We ditch the decks in favor of tangible solution artifacts that can be shared with users and stakeholders alike.

DURABLE OUTCOMES

Sprint final deliverables don’t sit on a digital shelf, we intentionally design them for frequent use in everyday work.

HIGH-PERFORMANCE HYBRID

We strategically mix virtual, in-person, and hybrid experiences to maximize the cost-to-value ratio.

APPLIED LEARNING

We leave teams smarter than we found them with built in learning moments along the project journey.

SCRAPPY INTERNALLY, SHINY EXTERNALLY

We share scrappy versions early, often, and internally to maximize time for creating shiny final versions for users

BRING THE OUTSIDE IN

We curate experts, fresh perspectives, experiences, and trends to help illuminate inspiration areas yet to be explored.

HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK

We create project collaboration experiences that spark employee engagement and are – dare we say – fun!
