Imagine starting Monday morning with your team and exploring an idea to create something new or improve a product or service. On Friday of the same week, the idea was finalized and tested on real customers.
Designsprint was developed for exactly that purpose; a tool that enables a team to create results together in a very short time.
“We have design sprint digital products, navigation system, subject systems, music festivals, service design, wilderness program and marketing campaigns.”
This course is for working groups of up to 10 people who want to use design sprint as a working methodology in their workplace.

Design sprint is often referred to as Google Design Sprint, because the three authors of the book describing the process worked at Google Ventures and because the process is actively used by Google every single day.
In short, the design sprint is a process for a team of about 8 people who work intensively together for 4-5 days to create a tangible model or prototype of a product or service - which can be tested on real customers or users. The purpose of the test is to find out if what the team has created is something that customers understand and both can or will purchase/use.
The reason why several of the world's most successful companies use the method worldwide is that it is highly effective and helps create better products or services - faster. There are also many examples where projects have saved many millions on development costs because they started with design sprint.
Facilitating a design sprint checks off at almost all the points of the known The Future of Jobs Survey which describes which characteristics will be most valuable and in demand in the future labor market. Mastering the facilitation of design sprint will for many be an important investment in their own career.
Gaute works as process manager at Increo and has had design thinking as the starting point for innovation, strategy and growth processes for our customers for a number of years. He facilitates about 50 workshops a year focusing on product development, commercialization, strategic growth.
In the course, he trains your team in practical tasks over two days to make each one confident in the role of facilitator - and provides an in-depth introduction to the methodology with examples from a multitude of real cases we have worked on.
After the course, you will also have access to our digital resource hub. Here you will find useful videos, links to external resources as well as downloadable resources.
The videos go into depth on topics that the course does not cover during the two days. Here you also get access to all the forms, presentations and checklists that we ourselves use in our work.
If you are the leader of a team, the course will provide you with a tool that you can actively use to create progress and results with your work group. And perhaps most importantly; an environment in which it becomes easier to make good decisions.
The team will also get a good hands-on introduction to the methodology. In this way, it will feel safe and familiar when you are seriously going to work with design sprints in the time afterwards.
Our goal is that it should be as simple as possible to introduce the working methodology into the working group. The most important thing is to build experience as early as possible, which is why we also offer support and coaching in the aftermath of the course.
Design Sprint is perfect for creating new products or services, improving existing services, or structuring and improving work processes or customer journeys. The degree of complexity of the problem is almost inexhaustible, but if the problem is too simple, it can quickly turn into shooting sparrows with cannons.
Gaute usually jokes that he used design sprint so as not to lose control when arranging his own wedding party. Kinda true it is too!
In other words, the process can be used for most things. Hier u Increo we design sprint digital products, navigation system, subject systems, music festivals, service design, wilderness program and marketing campaigns.
