Inspiration through the Collective

Strategy Design Sprint

Program overview

With the world undergoing rapid changes in shorter cycles, the traditional business and organisational strategy-making approaches are beginning to falter because of their heavy reliance on past data and rigid problem-solving models.

For that reason, newer strategy-making approaches are needed that meet the demands of the 21st century world.

The Strategy Design Sprint is a facilitation methodology that harnesses the power of the collective to create emergent strategies that solve complex and unpredictable organisational challenges.


Designing Emergent Strategies

About the Strategy Design Sprint Workshop

Inspired by Google Venture's 5-day Design Sprint process and anchored by Design Thinking, the Strategy Design Sprint workshop combines these method with efficient and engaging group facilitation techniques including LEGO SERIOUS PLAY, Liberating Structures and Management 3.0. The workshop is a highly collaborative and inclusive activity in designing and roadmapping organisational or business strategies.

While typical strategy development methods focus on creating a pathway towards leadership's big vision, the Strategy Design Sprint method focuses on surfacing known and unknown challenges that may derail the big vision from being realised. Following Theory of Constraints, the intent is for the organisation to address existing and emergent challenges that are truly limiting the potential of its business or organisational growth despite its future-proofing investments.

Once this is understood, the Strategy Design Sprint follows a problem-solving and lean approach to strategy roadmapping and execution by using the collective expertise of workshop participants in developing implementable and testable solutions.

Depending on the client's brief, the Strategy Design Sprint can be facilitated within a 1-day session and up to a 5-day period.
