Design Sprints

Using new technology to transform professional service firms.

About Design Sprints

Building on the work of the NextGenPSF project, Lancaster University and Oxford Brookes University are offering a limited number of spaces on their Design Sprint masterclasses, taking a structured approach to supporting legal and accountancy firms that will help to address and overcome firm-level challenges to implement AI technologies.

The workshops will engage a range of PSF leaders, introducing them to the outcomes and impact of the design sprint approach and provide an opportunity to work deeper with the research team to develop implementable action plans.

Sign up to a workshop below, or let us work with you to design a firm-specific version for in-house training. Bespoke consultancy support is available to include full development planning workshop and implementation support.
