What is a STEAM Sprint?

During our quick, intensive STEAM Sprints we’ll guide you through a process called ‘design-thinking’ that helps you get under the skin of the challenge you’re trying to tackle, making sure you’re solving the right problem.

You’ll work with your colleagues and other stakeholders to generate ideas for new solutions, and working closely with our team, you’ll develop the skills and mindset to think creatively about stubborn challenges.

What our members say

The STEAM Sprint workshops helped us bring together staff from across different business units to collaborate in thinking about drivers of change, and how that will affect our services, and the sectors we work in. The outputs of the sessions are influencing our regional business planning as well as our staff development approach.
