Design Thinking Sprint

Design Thinking workshops are not enough to build a culture in an organisation. Along with the workshops, we offer a staggered engagement for catalyzing Design Thinking led innovation and building creative thinking capability  in an organization. This engagement consists of initial short immersive workshop followed by DT sprints and standarisation. The DT Sprint is about applying Design Thinking tools in a real-time business scenario. For this program, senior facilitators from Turian Labs spend dedicated time understanding the problems and concerns of the organization to customize the process and tools specific to the organization’s requirements. 

Usually, it should take 8-10 weeks overall, with around 6-8 days of facilitation intervention from our side.
