Lancashire Forum Creative and the Media Innovation Studio’s Think Differently team bring you a one-day, hands-on experience to explore, accelerate and innovate ideas that will transform your business.

The Think Differently Sprint will introduce you to a new way of looking at and developing ideas, services and products that you will be able to use in your business. These sprints all have ideation, prototyping, testing and refining at their core.

Lancashire Forum Creative asked our colleagues Dr. Mark Lochrie and Gareth West to develop a unique version of the sprint process. Both Mark and Gareth have extensive industry and academic experience which means the process is tuned to the needs of SMEs. Mark has design sprint certified status from AJ & Smarts.

Why should I attend?

Every business needs to be agile, flexible and ready to react to challenges and opportunities.

Sprints help you develop and rethink ideas, understand customer needs, conduct research and development more effectively and explore new paths for new products and services.

The sprint involves:

  • Pre-workshop support to establish your needs, aims, and goals
  • A one-day workshop where you will focus on two core component of the Sprint methodology; ideation and prototyping
  • A bespoke toolkit and strategy document tailored to your business needs and a sample of the tools needed to support you in running your own sprints

Breakfast, lunch and pizza in the evening are all provided so please let us know how many members of your team will be attending. Come along with a good understanding of your business and customers, and enthusiasm and an openness to explore new ways of working.
