WHAT’S GOING ON?
There will be a number of different event types to choose from driven by the topic and desired output:
Design sprint is a process for answering critical business questions through design, prototyping, and testing ideas with customers. Great ideas are everywhere, but the path to success is uncertain, even with the greatest ideas. Many traditional companies spend months to develop a solution, to only then find out that customers do not respond to their product. What a waste! A Design Sprint helps you to save your precious time, energy and resources, by jumping into the future.
Hackathon is a design sprint-like event in which computer programmers and others involved in software development, including graphic designers, interface designers, project managers, and others, often including subject-matter-experts, collaborate intensively on software projects.
Workshop is a meeting at which a group of people engage in intensive discussion and activity on a particular subject or project. This is great for problem definition, idea creation or high-level solution finding.
A year of work in a week – 60 focused minds on a project = 2100 hours! It’s an opportunity to accelerate an existing project without the usual constraints in the office. Project on steroids!!
