Event description

Description

Imagine if we could solve the world's problems at a local level at the same rate we solve technology problems at a global level? That is the purpose "The Ladder" - learn our advanced version of Google Design Sprints, while solving real problems for local non-profits and communities.

Join the fastest growing innovation community in Ireland and the world's largest Google Design Sprint meet-up

// What you will learn

(The workshop can be joined at any time, but you'll get the most out of it by attending all 6 weeks. If you can't attend see below for online and custom workshops)

There is only one real way to learn the Design Sprint skill - by doing - so you will solve a real problem with a local non-profit using skills you already have (and they need) in a structure we provide through the Google Design Sprint' adapted for use over 6 weeks.

We'll guide you along the way with a professional facilitator. You will learn how to define, ideate, prototype and test any idea in a rigorous, fun and proven way - through direct participation. You will learn how to build something before committing to people, time and money. Validate using the most rigorous, proven - and innovative approach available today.

Not only will you be learning, you'll be contributing directly to a real local cause as well as helping The Ladder reach it's goal - helping nations reach the global sustainable development goals by 2030 through scaling impact for local organisations and communities.

By following the steps, you can then try to run your own design sprint, or with some additional training facilitate at a Ladder Community or professionally. Join us after for an informal catch up in a local pub to get tips on how you can incorporate these techniques in unique ways within your team and organization.

The outcome is that you will be a Design Sprint Practitioner, having solved a REAL problem through practice. You will be ready to try your own idea with a sprint as well as understanding the issues that face charities, communities and non-profits in your locality.

Interested in facilitating sprints? We are the only organisation who provide training on real sprints with real organisations from day one, with dedicated mentors. This is offerred to a very limited number of participants each Sprint Cycle. Check out the eventbrite page above.

* Pre-requisites completed for CDSF - certified facilitator.
