Innovation Sprints

WHAT IS AN INNOVATION SPRINT?

A SIX-WEEK, CO-DESIGNED IDEATION PROCESS, GROUNDED IN ACADEMIC RESEARCH, TO EXPLORE OPPORTUNITIES AND SOLUTIONS TO WICKED PROBLEMS.

 

Exploring Opportunities

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.

 CDE has conducted 24 Innovation Sprints over the past three years with 60% of solutions in further development and 20% in market.
