Lightning Decision Lab

Move From Debate to Action in Just Two Hours

Our Lightning Decision Labs replace the messiness of your typical meeting with a structured and time-boxed workshop guaranteed to deliver a decision. It sparks creative solutions and encourages doing over discussing.

This workshop is a great replacement for your typical decision-making meeting and serves as the perfect kick-off for a larger project.

Identify and work on a broad topic affecting your organisation

A Lightning Decision Lab works best when you have a broad topic affecting your organisation. We’ll work with you before the lab to choose a suitable topic.

Replace endless discussion and meetings with a focussed creative problem solving and decision making workshop

There’s a time and place for meetings and discussion, and there’s a time and place for action. This is the latter. The Lightning Decision Lab provides a focussed, time-boxed framework for creative problem solving and decision making.

Learn a repeatable framework you can use for future meetings or workshops

Take everything you learn back with you, giving you and your team powerful new tools you can use everyday.

Set the scene for a Project or Remote Design Sprint

A Lightning Decision Lab is the perfect setup for a larger project or a Remote Design Sprint, covering a lot of the Sprint’s groundwork in a morning or afternoon.
