projectlabs

The fastest way to get from problem to innovative solution.

At the heart of our projectlabs is the art and science of facilitation and co-creation, which we have mastered by working with hundreds of teams in various industries and organizations around the world.

Our projectlabs are based on the classical design sprint, which we sometimes condense, and often times convert in a series of short facilitated workshops to fit into the busy schedule of any team. In our projectlabs we step firmly on design thinking and scrum and will drag and drop from other agile methodologies like service design and futures thinking as needed.

Through our projectlabs we help teams move away from the world of old school - slow, linear, solution-centred way of working and onto the more contemporary - fast-paced, iterative, customer-first approach. This approach allows teams to effectively take user perspective and focus their creativity into designing for actual needs. It also allows them to explore and validate innovative concepts, quicker and at a low risk - leaving your company with tested solutions that balance desirability, viability and feasibility.

The projectlabs are made for organizations willing to go deeper and move faster on their most important projects. They are suitable for those organizations that have a pipeline of strategic innovation and improvement projects and want to accelerate them. They are also fit for organizations running or about to launch internal innovation challenges, accelerators and intrapreneurship programs, and need help facilitating multiple teams.

No matter how experienced or inexperienced your team is, through our work you'll enhance both project results and your confidence in running design sprints.
