The “typical” innovation process has three phases. The innovation sprint will get a team ready for the next phase. For example, a team in validation will complete its innovation sprint with a pitch requiring further investment and approval to go to the acceleration phase.
For a team who starts from a new untested idea an 8-week sprint helps the team map the business model and value proposition. Then make the underlying risks explicit, test hypotheses, and course correct rapidly. Adapt the idea over 8 weeks until it looks promising.
For a team who has previously shaped their idea and done early testing, a 12-week sprint helps the team drastically reduce the risk of a business idea that won’t deliver on expectations. In that time they per- form willingness to pay and pricing experiments. Prepare their idea for further investment.
For a team who has already made progress validating their idea, the sprint can last up to 24 weeks to enable more time-consuming experiments. Further intensify testing with strong Minimum Viable Products (MVPs). Gather evidence that you can acquire and retain customers. Prepare for scaling and further investments.
