We fell in love

with a new way of working

85+ Design Sprints since 2016

Our story

Years of waterfall project management, Excel spreadsheets, lots of talk with long reports and little action left us uninspired and energy drained. We decided it was time for a change. Margriet quit her job and spent 3 months hiking the Himalayas. Robert hitch-hiked from China to Turkey. In Amsterdam they met armed with the energy and belief that work can be done differently. 

 

Fast forward 5 years, still full of energy and a company that strives to inspire and activate customer focused innovation. We believe in the Design Sprint as we have seen its impact time and time again in terms of results to solve challenges. Not only that, also the impact on teams to work differently. The week is an eye-opener that transforms how teams communicate, learn, have fun and get results.

Our principles

Have fun or go home

We love what we do and our enthusiasm is contagious, you’ll want to get moving too.

You've got 99 problems

Customers don’t care about your solution, they care about their problems. We love problems.

Curiosity is your friend

Adventure of the unknown is exciting. With the right questions you make the greatest discoveries.

Validation trumps assumption

Need we say more. Customers are full of inspiration and surprises. Talk to them asap.

Sharing is caring

You don’t need us forever. We guide, train and empower you to work with an entrepreneurial mindset.

We work globally

We are based in Amsterdam, but love to travel. It keeps us sharp and allows us to cross-borders with new insights. So far we have Sprinted in 12 countries: 

The Netherlands / Belgium / Hong Kong / China / Spain / Czech republic / Turkey / Tanzania / Hungary / Germany / United Kingdom / Lebanon

 

Challenges in need of attention

Far too many times we hear a lot of talking, but don’t see people acting. So many challenges, where to start? That’s why we love the Design Sprint, it is such a good fire-starter. We are especially passionate about finding impactful solutions. A few challenges lay extra close to our heart.

The great Design Sprint roadtrip

Travel increases your versatility, adaptability and sparks creativity. All key ingredients for solving challenges in new ways. 2020 is the year of our big Sprint Adventure Roadtrip. We’ll drive from Amsterdam to Beppu, from A to B. On the trip we’ll look for inspiration, share the Design Sprint love and get out of our comfort zone. Want to join us?

In short

We’re adventurous out-of-the-box do-ers, engaged facilitators, challenging the status quo with humor, energy and years of innovation practice. We have run 85+ Design Sprints globally and countless innovation mindset workshops to get teams moving and adapt a growth mindset.
