Innovations Sprints

Innovation sprints allow for rapid and rigorous exploration of opportunities while delivering actionable artefacts, stakeholder engagement, and employee education. The sprints are conducted by specialist designers and researchers from the QUT Chair in Digital Economy.

Innovation sprints typically involve 30 days of activity, spread over a six week period. The sprint is designed to uncover and customer problems as reframed opportunities and design solutions for them, while iterating the solution to align internally with an organisation’s strategy and resources.

Our design-led approach is uniquely coupled with rigorous academic research to tackle tough, intractable social problems, by exploring how your organisation could focus on proactively delivering solutions to their customers whilst aligning new solutions and future business strategies.

The absolute core of the sprint is that in ten days, the sprint team explores the digital future around the given problem space, and provide concrete concepts into how this future can begin to be implemented. We are proud of the fact that our holistic, research intensive and conceptually implementable method has worked with small, medium and large organisations, academic institutions and all three levels of government to deliver purpose-led outcomes.

Each sprint delivers a future vision, proof-of-concepts, digital artefacts and qualitative academic reports. Our approach provides a platform for rapid exploration, ideation, design, validation and co-creation of proof-of-concepts in an environment that is free from the distractions of a normal business environment. Customers are at the heart of every sprint. Through research, ethnography and journey mapping, to concept and prototype testing; customers and stakeholders are key to the co-design of understanding problems and informing proactive solutions needed in this new digital age.
