WHAT IS AN INNOVATION SPRINT?
A SIX-WEEK, CO-DESIGNED IDEATION PROCESS, GROUNDED IN ACADEMIC RESEARCH, TO EXPLORE OPPORTUNITIES AND SOLUTIONS TO WICKED PROBLEMS.
The Innovation Sprint is a six-week, highly iterative, academically-rigorous, co-designed program. Innovation Sprints involve a team of QUT researchers, designers, and client stakeholders who rapidly ideate to explore opportunities to a specific problem, through ‘problem divergence’ and then quickly into ‘concept convergence’ to successfully develop a prototype and actionable framework for change. The solution is presented to a forum of stakeholders with on-going engagement with domain experts throughout the process.
Conducted in the Innovation Labs at QUT Gardens Point campus, an Innovation Sprint takes 30 business days scheduled as three 10-day blocks to:
- research and consult,
- ideate and develop solutions, and
- report on outcomes.
Since 2015, CDE has conducted 28 Innovation Sprints with 50% of solutions in further development and 20% in market. Check-out the wicked problems (and opportunities) that we have tackled through our Innovation Sprints – Innovation Sprint Portfolio.
