SproutCamp teams commit one day a week to work together to rev up the gears of customer development, experiments and validated learning. This is not for the faint of heart. Your teams will be pushed outside their comfort zone and prompted to address the highest risks in their companies' immediate future.
It may feel like tough love, but it’s all in service of evoking the best team and product possible.×
The 8-week duration give a rhythm to the experience that is rarely possible without outside support. As entrepreneurs, there is very little stability or process in our work, and a little bit of predictability gives back huge returns in confidence and reduction of anxiety.
It takes repeated, habitual behavior to get into this kind of pacing. We’ve seen rock-solid behaviors emerge between weeks 6 and 8, which is why we shortened the duration to 8 weeks: long enough to prove rhythm, but no longer.×
Nothing reinforces ability like repeated practice of basic skills. Teams will repeatedly use simple patterns of work over and over until these approaches are baked into the team culture.
Teams practice how to identify a key question that needs to be validated, how to frame the question as a crisp hypothesis, how to generate ideas to make the most of the creativity of the team, how to rapidly and effectively get to shared decisions. These skills are the strong foundations of every stellar team.×
