Description

This is the GALWAY Ladder community.

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 of "The Ladder"-learn Google Design Sprints, while solving real problems for local non-profits and communities and help the urgent planet goal to reach the UN Sustainable Development Goals

Join our meet-up every Thursday , Galway 6:45-9pm

//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 this 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 'Sprint' over 6 weeks.

You will learn how to define, ideate, prototype and test any idea using, the fastest and cheapest way possible. Validate your idea before spending significant money, time and resources 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 - getting nations to reach the global sustainable development goals by 2030 by scaling impact.

OUTOME: You will be a Design Sprint Practitioner- ready to try your own idea with a sprint as well as getting inside a real non-profit or charity and contributing locally.

We also provide paid professional faciltator training to a very limited number of participants each Sprint Cycle. Check out the eventbrite page above.

What you get:
* CDST Training and be Design Sprint Certification ready
* The knowledge that you have helped a non-profit, community directly or indirectly
* Pre requisites completed for CDSF - certified facilitator

//Who should attend
Innovators, designers, PM, PO, marketers, developers, social entrepreneurs can leverage this methodology to drive meaningful change. Commercial, non-profits and .gov folks can all benefit. No prior experience is necessary

//What if I can't attend?
The ladder provides on-site training and sprint facilitation to your company

//What if there are no spots left.
