An Introduction to Design Sprints for social impact organisations

April 30 @ 09:30 - 11:30

Design sprints:

Design Sprints, first developed at Google, are all about developing a idea quickly with real users. They involve:

  • zeroing in on the problem you’re trying to solve
  • fleshing out a concept
  • building a prototype
  • and getting it front of real people to test

But how do you do all of that? And quickly?

Why this event:

At Outlandish they have been running Design Sprints for NGOs, charities, unions and socially positive start-ups for the last 3 years

If you’re thinking of running a sprint at your organisation, if you want to get ideas off the ground fast, or if you’re just yearning for everyone “to be a bit more innovative”, they can help.

What you’ll learn:

In this workshop, they will demystify what a Design Sprint involves and share how they have adapted them for teams like yours.


  1. learn how they’re good for any idea – from tech ideas to campaigns, from strategies to processes
  2. get an insight into the key steps of a Design Sprint and why they are useful
  3. understand how to adapt the Design Sprint process to get it to work for you
  4. overcome key blockers to Design Sprints internally and during your sprint
  5. find out how to get stakeholders involved (without eating up their time)
  6. go beyond Design Sprints to start thinking about planning your idea in a way that cuts risk
