Sprints come from the world of Agile management, where a small team works together for a fixed period of time in order to achieve a specific goal or meet a set milestone.
A Growth Sprint is an accelerated innovation sprint, where a team sets out to generate, develop and test a new innovation idea, or identify how to build up an important specific innovation capability.
Usually these take a few weeks, where I work with one of your teams away from their normal job to solve a specific innovation challenge you might have.
You will be amazed how your company’s challenges which previously would have taken your teams months (or even a year or more) to solve using traditional methods can make significant progress in a fraction of the time and for far less budget.
Growth Sprints are also a vital method to validate progress on specific innovation initiatives, a core part of prioritising a healthy innovation portfolio.
