Sprinting Towards Innovation

We have heard about how developers use Sprints as an agile tool to get code shipped. How about using a similar concept for innovating on an idea? Ideas are abundant and many times teams struggle to figure out which ideas to pursue. Design Sprints use a design-thinking-like process to understand which ideas are worth moving to the next steps. In this interactive workshop you'll learn:

  • How to research an idea's merit from a customer's perspective
  • How to gain insights from that data (and how different the data may be from what you might expect)
  • Modifying, evolving or killing an idea based on that research, prototyping and feedback

Note: Due to feedback, we're cutting networking in the beginning.  We'll start presentation shortly after 6:30 so arrive on time!

C. Todd Lombardo has over 15 years of experience creating change in the corporate world. A bit of a generalist with a slant towards design. He excels at bridging connections from different areas and believes in the power of thinking visually for effective communication. He has worked with organizations large and small to deliver innovative practices in product development, organization design and communication. He currently leads the Innovation Catalysts at Constant Contact and is on the adjunct faculty at IE Business School in Madrid where he teaches MBA courses in design thinking, communication and innovation.

    The session was great! I liked the examples to help clarify what we were doing at each step, and it might be a good idea to incorporate more physical movement to get blood pumping and provide more energy (tough to do in such a short amount of time!)

    C. Todd Lombardo's hands on approach allowed us to experience the innovation flow. This made it easier for me to see how this would apply to my team.
