If you haven't read Sprint: How to Solve Big Problems and Test New Ideas in Just Five Days, you should. In the running for the most practically useful book of 2016, Sprint lays out a specific framework to test out ideas in a business week that could fundamentally shift the course of your business or idea. Vetted at Google Ventures on over 100 projects, Sprint is one of the few systems we've seen that when applied gives you real insight throughout the entire process.
The key is not dissimilar to our own Rapid Vision Development process—intense focus and unwavering commitment to the process while you are engaged.
"...working together to build something that matters to real people. This is the best use of your time. This is a sprint."
Monday - Mapping
Tuesday - Sketch
Wednesday - Decide
Thursday - Prototype
Friday - Test
Sounds simple? It kind of is, but that doesn't mean it is easy. We will swoop in and help you run a sprint for any idea - having facilitation from "outside" frees up important resources that will be vital to your effort, provides an external view of how best to proceed (and with who) and will be committed to the process over anything else you might have going on internally.
How does it work?
Reserve your Sprint with a $500 deposit (10%) and we will contact you within 12 hours to get more details. Once set, you can Set the Stage, gather the supplies and we will show up on Monday ready to start your sprint.
We highly recommend reading the book, and at the very least exploring the Sprint site to learn all about it. This is a serious commitment and fees are non-refundable, regardless of how far we get.
When can we start?
Please provide us with at least 7 days notice of when you would like to start.
What's it cost?
The total cost is $5000 for the week of dedicated time + traveling expenses if outside the Bay Area. 10% is required as a deposit, which is fully refundable if for some reason one of us decides not to move forward, and the remainder is due at least 2 days before the start of the Sprint. Travel expenses, if required, will be billed separately after the cost is presented and mutually signed off on.
