Problem solving and design sprints

Students work on a problem

Design sprints

Everybody agrees that problem-solving skills are essential for success in a rapidly changing world. At CLC we teach problem-solving in context. Students get to solve real problems for local businesses and communities using Google’s design sprint format.

The design sprint is a five-day process for answering critical business questions through design, prototyping, and testing ideas with customers. Developed at Google Ventures, the venture capital division of Google, it’s a “greatest hits” of business strategy, innovation, behavior science, design thinking, and more—packaged into a battle-tested process that any team can use.


Energy Design Sprint

In June 2018 Cambridge Leadership College led a team of international students on a Google design sprint to tackle the challenge of how to make energy as abundant as music.

Cambridge Leadership College has design sprints planned throughout the 2018-19 academic year. The next ones will be during:
22-26 October 2018
18-22 February 2019
