Discovery Sprints - What If We...

The real voyage of discovery consists not of seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes. 

Discovery Sprints Mission:  To build out scenarios and backcast to action, surfacing outlooks and unlocking breakthroughs.

Formats:  Scenario Planning, Opportunity Assessment, Rapid Exploratory, Lead or Edge User Co-Creation, Open Crowd Challenges

Defined: Tapping into deep wells of strategic foresight, futures thinking, open collaboration and experimental research, Discovery Sprints open the curtain to a better future, incorporating workshop facilitation, rapid exploratory participation & development and open forums to capture and catalyze imaginations. The intent of these sprints are to unearth strategic issues of importance to the firm, derive relevant future scenarios of possibility and create new prototype-able solutions to the various uncertainties presented.

The Cygnus Difference: 

  • Speed & Urgency - researchers can sometimes take months to just get sensors in field, we do it in three months or less

  • Platforms - access to platforms where we can host research, collaborative development & open challenges

  • The Lead 10% - when you want to see new possibility,  it helps to tap the opinion of pioneers and early adopters ahead of the curve 

  • Doubles, Triples and Home Runs - able to look at different ambitions, scopes and time spans of change

  • Implications w/ Evidence - combines the strength of actions, loosened constraints and supporting plausibility
