Need a groundbreaking solution for a tricky challenge? Design Sprints transform problems into prototypes in just days.

What is a design sprint?
Built on Google's Design Sprint toolkit, we bring together diverse experts to solve big problems of all kinds—for companies, federal agencies, and nonprofits. A Design Sprint is like a highly-regimented workshop, immersing your team in innovation for one week. Whether you are solving big challenges, kicking off new products, or improving existing ones, you’ll work collaboratively to move from a complex problem to a viable prototype in just a few inspiring days.
How we work
Design thinking is how we operate—internally and with our clients. We have built a culture around an iterative and design-centric mindset. We train our consultants with the Spark Labs toolkit, encompassing a variety of workshops and Design Sprint experiences. This allows the diverse experts within ICF to come together and work on your challenge.
No matter where you are in your project journey, Spark Labs drives rapid progress through co-creation. This approach allows us to engage and leverage the right expertise and decision-makers when kicking off new projects, driving long-term success.
