What is an innovation sprint?

An innovation sprint is a focused, time-bound process used to develop and test new ideas or solve specific problems quickly and efficiently. Typically lasting from a few days to a week, an innovation sprint leverages cross-functional expertise and agile methodologies to transform an innovative idea into a tested and validated prototype and proof of concept within a tight timeline. 

WestLink’s innovation sprints are designed to foster creativity, collaboration, and rapid iteration, enabling teams to swiftly and effectively validate the core functionalities of new technologies or ideas, minimizing risks and accelerating decision making.

How it works

2. Prototype

What is a design sprint?

Design sprints are a structured framework for rapid ideation, prototyping, and user testing within a condensed time frame. This method allows for thorough exploration and validation of product concepts, market needs, and user personas before development begins. By ensuring the product meets both user needs and business goals, design sprints minimize risks and accelerate time-to-market, ultimately leading to a market-ready product.

Leveraging our Advanced Discovery process—our most comprehensive discovery approach—we deliver a functional, yet minimal viable product (MVP) featuring the essential functionalities that early adopters will use and love.
