Sprints

Post learning workshops, you can begin to apply processes and tools in solving specific problems of your company or in undertaking innovation or transformation journey.  Design Thinking fundamentals combined with ExO fundamentals provide you a pathway to kick-start your corporate innovation or digital transformation.  Here we provide a typical timeline of Design Sprint and ExO Sprint.

Typical Design Sprint Schedule

We adopt a 4-day Design Sprint process to rapidly validate ideas for specific challenge through prototyping and testing ideas with customers.  The process compresses potentially months of work into a few days. 

 

Instead of waiting to launch a minimal product to get feedback, you can get clear feedback from a realistic prototype. The sprint gives you a superpower: You can fast-forward into the future to see your finished product and customer reactions, before making any expensive commitments.

 

"In a Design Sprint you'll have to be comfortable with being uncomfortable: uncomfortably fast, uncomfortably imperfect and uncomfortably incomplete"

Typical ExO Sprint Schedule

To help clients develop corporate innovations for their digital transformation journey,  we adopt the ExO Sprint as the strategy and approach for generating and building exponential technologies initiative ideas.  The ExO Sprint covers two streams of activities, namely Core and Edge. 

 

The Core stream helps the current organization to become more lean, agile and adaptable to the industry disruption within its current business model. The Edge stream then works 'on the edge' of the current organization and focuses on disruptive innovation outside of the original business model. The Core stream helps to get the most out of the current business model and existing strategy while the Edge stream works to disrupt the current model and build the future of the company's industry.

 

"If you are not already in the business of doing ExO Sprints and experimenting, then you're halfway to being disrupted already."
