Because doing the same thing and expecting new results
is the definition of insanity.
FORGET EVERYTHING YOU KNOW ABOUT WORK.
You have never worked harder, faster, smarter or more efficiently than within a sprint.
A creative sprint applies agile development principles (traditionally used in software and technology startups) to solve problems and jumpstart projects.
A resource-savvy approach to inventing and validating solutions, a sprint is trademarked by many smaller decisions over a shorter period of time with an easily testable hypothesis. With far more minimal budget and time investments, companies can save millions of dollars and thousands of man hours bringing the wrong idea to market.
BECAUSE MEETINGS ABOUT MEETINGS ACCOMPLISH NOTHING.
It's time to get serious about idea generation.
Emails, deadlines, phone calls, meetings, spreadsheets, timesheets and more meetings distract us from real work. In fact, the average office worker spends about 15 minutes each day doing actual work. Think about how long it takes to come to a mutual decision, to solve a problem, or to complete a project in your organization. Isn't it time to try something different?
A sprint can reboot your team and defines a unique precedent to future problem solving. And it's not just for software: marketing, product, strategy, company development, customer service, fundraising, mission creation, philosophy defining, IT and other teams have used sprints to rapidly generate and test solutions to their problems.
You won't finish the sprint with a perfect, finalized, polished and ready-to-ship solution. But you will make unfathomable progress, cut through tired corporate practices and receive validation that you are on the right track—all in five days.
