About

Facilitating innovation workshops and design sprints for teams to quickly identify and solve creative challenges.

Organizations of all sizes and from every industry are being called to respond to rapid change in their market. Their imperative is to innovate or be left behind. Daniel Vogelzang utilizes proven frameworks and methodologies to facilitate innovation workshops and design sprints so that teams and companies can quickly identify and qualify ideas, build, test and iterate, and pitch business cases to receive buy-in.

Facilitated sprints range from 3 days to 5 day workshops, held at functional locations designed for thinking big, and getting hands-on. Every session is customized exactly to the client’s needs and challenges at hand. We will plan and prepare all logistics, advanced materials, research, questions and exercises as needed. The sessions will be structured yet creative; rigorous yet fun. Participants often report deep enthusiasm from the experience with a sense of team closeness and a drive to execute on results.
