We fell in love
with a new way of working
90+ Design Sprints since 2016
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.
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 / Ivory Coast
The big 2021 Roadtrip
Travel increases your versatility, adaptability and sparks creativity. All key ingredients for solving challenges in new ways. 2020 was the year of our big Sprint Adventure Roadtrip. Covid decided differently. So, in 2021, we’ll drive from Amsterdam to Beppu, from A to B. On the trip we would love to get inspired and inspire, share the Design Sprint love and help teams to move forward, faster, more focused and customer centric. Want to join us?

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.
