Our Sprint Masters' Community designs for the 99%. We are democratizing the access to service design by putting it at reach of SMBs worldwide. Read more about our movement in this article at Core77. Our manifesto is expressed below:
We believe that the innovative power of design can be transmitted to all people regardless of technical background, social status and geographical location.
We praise, and live by, a collaborative and open source mindset. From the methodology we use to the transformations we foster. Our community plays open, share a lot and build upon the work of each other.
We are biased to action and strive to produce real implemented change. The makers agenda has changed into one that is lean, fast and Agile. We believe in learn, build and measure loops. And we also stand by the idea that the empathetic power of design must be at the core of every Agile and fast-paced innovation effort.
We are not a design firm. We are not a bunch of flat-lined know-it-all consultants. We are engineers, lawyers, scientists, scholars, designers, doctors, dog walkers, your average joe. We are anyone willing to learn the path to foster business transformations through service design. We are organized as a community, one that looks after each other and is united by one purpose: To change the world in 4 days, one sprint at a time.
We practice and preach service thinking. We focus on services and see products as mere avatars, vessels for the services they provide. We believe the path to solve the complicated challenges we face as society today lies in seeing things as a service.
