You bring your business challenge – we’ll bring the rest
The Strategy Sprint is a systematic and pragmatic process to collaboratively setting goals, making informed decisions, and planning out future steps with your team.
It’s a smart way to tackle complex challenges that include knowledge gaps and missing stakeholder alignment.
Effective – We will condens months of planning into action-driven roadmaps that make your projects happen.
Clear – Proven tools and methods enable us to create a clear path everyone understands and agrees with.
Collaborative – Selected stakeholders and experts will sit together in a physical room, to share knowledge and make effective decisions.
Outcome-oriented – No one size fits it all. We create a custom session that produces the results you need to move your project forward.
Let's design your workshop
“The process was beyond our expectations. The individual components of the workshop could be flexibly adapted to our needs. Overall, it was a successful concept!”
In advance of the workshop, we analyse your market, your current strategy, customer journey, system landscape and business challenges. We pre-define a target picture and stakeholder roles.
We kick off the Strategy Sprint with a “Vision Statement”: Goals, KPIs, the scope of this project and its dependencies. Therefore, we sum up our previous analysis, look at the company’s overall goals and identify the most profitable products and customer segments.
On day 2 we screen your company’s and your customers’ perspective: pains, gains and potential solutions. If possible, we have a customer representative with us to really hear their experiences from first line.
The goal of this day is to design a “Service Blueprint” that outlines technical requirements. Therefore, we elaborate selected solutions to the previously identified pain points. By leveraging the expertise of different departments, we make sure they profitable and technically feasable.
To develop your target architecture, we evaluate and prioritise the selected solutions according to impact and feasability. We use our tried and tested IBM iX reference architecture as a foundation, by making make sure to align with your company’s IT strategy.
On the last day, we transform your target setup into a roadmap of concrete measures, incl. effort estimation and responsabilities. Depending on the project, the next steps can vary from a refined UX strategy, data strategy or feature prototyping.
