Innovation sprints bring together a select group of key stakeholders and decision-makers to solve a complex problem, explore a new area, or improve an existing experience. Fresh facilitators guide a group through a workshop-based process of understanding a challenge, generating ideas, prototyping solutions, then testing in front of users to gain actionable insights.
