The Cross-Functional Innovation Sprint is great for innovation, growth, strategy, and product/service/experience design teams who need to:
Our teams become one team with an immersion into goals, desired outcomes, and business results. We co-create a Strategy Brief that will guide the project.
We ground the process in insights on your users, your business, your industry, and a few of the people who are shaking it all up.
We’ll bring together a divergent, cross-functional group and ground them in the insights from our research before facilitating them through a highly creative and experiential ideation workshop. From there we will gather a smaller group to prioritize and refine our top 5 ideas into a detailed concepts prototypes that are ready to be put in front of customers / users for feedback testing. We’ll develop the concept name, description, key features, interaction storyboard, 1/3/5 year vision, and a higher fidelity illustration to bring it to life.
We’ll map out the next steps, including a recommended pipeline strategy, the short term testing roadmap, and research plans and discussion guides for customer / user testing. Then we’ll either kick-off the pilot phase with you, or transition it to your team for testing in-house.

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).
They can be fully embedded with our team or hands off – we know calendars are tight, we so we’ll mold to what is feasible.
Sprints are designed to accelerate the highest priority initiatives you’re on the hook to deliver. We will work with you in advance to make sure they’re scoped against the right strategic priorities so it doesn’t feel like a ‘side of desk’ project.
