Tackling your people strategy doesn’t have to be big, complex, expensive or boring!

It's hard to keep the strategy stuff moving when operational issues keep coming up. Constant restructures, legislation changes, managers misbehaving, and employees underperforming. But executing strategy doesn't have to be hard. In just six weeks, using Culture Design Sprints, you will make meaningful progress on your key strategic initiatives in an exciting and collaborative way. Plus, you'll have plenty of cool and tangible things to share at your next quarterly update!

Culture Design Sprints give you a fresh, not fluffy approach to culture. 

We've taken inspiration from design thinking and design sprints to build a unique method developed specifically for P&C teams in mid-sized organisations (100 - 1,000). Our approach enables you to make fast, tangible progress on your people strategy in a way that's super engaging and not at all 'corporate'.

Our Approach

WEEK 1

Align the Culture Design Sprint to your context and goals

We'll start with a session to deep-dive into your organisational vision, strategy and culture. We'll get clarity on your people strategy and the objectives you want to tackle in the Sprint. After the kick-off, we'll map out the logistics and timelines and review any work you and the team have already done.

WEEKS 2 & 3

Bring your people together and break the HR workshop stereotype

The thought of culture-building sessions usually invokes eye rolls and cynicism. Break the stereotype, and have your people walk away saying, "That was way better than the boring HR workshop I was expecting." Each workshop is tailored to meet the Sprint objectives, drawing from our toolkit of engaging and innovative tools and techniques.

Each Sprint begins with an ELT/SLT workshop(s). We then run workshops with the broader organisation to get bottom-up input. Workshops go for 3-4 hours, and we typically run 4-8 workshops as part of a Sprint.

WEEK 4 & 5

Prototyping & piloting to quickly test and validate ideas

Culture Design Sprint workshops generate tons of ideas and insights. We'll synthesise the data and build out some experiments to run.

Instead of spending ages over-engineering something perfect on paper but not perfect in practice, we quickly build prototypes for piloting. Prototyping and piloting allow you to test out more ideas and take a more agile and experimental approach to implementation.

WEEK 6

Action planning to keep the momentum going

We'll analyse the data and feedback from the experiments and then present back a clear action plan. This plan maps out the quick wins and longer-term initiatives that you should prioritise to positively impact your People Strategy. You'll walk away with data, tangible assets, and a plan so you can continue to move forward with confidence.
