Design Sprints and Workshops Tailored To Your Objectives

Improve organisational agility and speed your time to market with Design Sprints and Workshops by The Familiar.

Our Design Sprints and Design Thinking Workshops are designed to replace long, aimless conversations and meetings with time-boxed, focused decision-making frameworks to speed you and your organisation forward.

Our Workshops

The nature of your organisation and the challenges and opportunities it faces are unique and ever-changing. Our workshops are designed and delivered in a way that recognises what makes you unique and uses it to your advantage.

Our Workshops team delivers around four core frameworks, but each and every workshop is adapted to your organisation’s unique circumstances.
