Design Thinking Doing

SparkCanvas is an effective design method to develop concrete ideas for new products and business models within a day and make them tangible.

SparkCanvas the Mission
The Design-Thinking-Workshop Dilemma

Over the past few years we have heard repeatedly from customers who were unsatisfied with the results of design thinking workshops: “It was very nice, we had fun for two days and stuck colorful post-its on the wall – but we came out is nothing in the end … “

With SparkCanvas, we have therefore developed a workshop format that is clearly structured and results-oriented. SparkCanvas is based on a six-stage framework that can be carried out within one day and used flexibly in everyday work.

“With the SparkCanvas method, our team was able to develop important unique selling points for our new product in just a few hours.”

Malte Schönfeld, Venture Development Manager, Audi

“Our stakeholders often come to us with a ready-made solution. The problem that is actually to be solved is usually completely forgotten. With the SparkCanvas Framework, we then help them not only to understand their problem at all, but also to find a suitable solution And most of the time it’s not just another app. “

A concrete translation of user needs leads to banal solutions that do not promise success. The SparkCanvas method supports your team in transforming the user need into an innovative solution.

Researching your field only leads to insights that your competition also has. The SparkCanvas method supports your team in finding a unique value proposition.

“With the SparkCanvas method, design thinking becomes tangible and quick to use – great!”

“With the SparkCanvas method we were able to transfer special features from completely different subject areas as inspiration to the task to be solved and thus come up with ideas that would otherwise have been hidden from us.”
