On 13 December 3pm CET, Milan Guenther will give a free webinar on Design Sprints and empowering your intrapreneurs for rapid innovation.
The role of a change agent in an enterprise is no easy one. Even with the right entrepreneurial spirits in your teams, politics, silos, established cultural traits and operational challenges get in the way. This has led many enterprises to try a different way. Diving into intrapreneurship programs employing lean and agile approaches, organizations are attempting to catch up with the startup world.
The ideas of working in rapid iterative sprints and avoiding waste have proven vital to overcome the natural inertia of organizations. The Design Sprint was originally developed at Google Ventures with Silicon Valley pioneers. It is a rapid innovation workshop format that aims to tackle problems for teams of any size, validating the challenge and potential solutions before investing into their realization.
In this webinar, Milan will introduce Enterprise Design Sprints, a variant of the original tool developed working with the likes of Google, SAP and Toyota. It is designed specifically to get innovation initiatives up to speed, mapping complexity rather than ignoring it, and triggering transformation dynamics.
