PeerProjects

PeerWorkshops

Blenheim Chalcot's PeerWorkshops are a heavily condensed version of the five-day Design Sprint invented at Google by Jake Knapp, perfected with more than 150 startups at Google Venture (GV), then shared with the world in the bestselling book Sprint.  

The big idea with GV's Design Sprint is to build and test a prototype in five days. The PeerWorkshops at Blenheim Chalcot draw heavily from GV's work on Design Sprints. They are created to enable senior professionals to efficiently collaborate and solve real-world problems in a close team environment. Hosted out of the Blenheim Chalcot office in New York City, each workshop is built around a specific theme raised by one of our Peer Community. Typically, 20 professionals meet, split into groups of 5, then tackle a core business issue and ideate solutions, all within a session duration of less than 2 hours.

How it Works?

How Might We - Hive App

After the Workshop

Within two weeks of the session, all participants will be asked to share digital 'sticky notes' called "How Might We" in their Hive Learning app group. These notes are very powerful and should suggest solutions to the key questions raised. Instructions on how to add a "How Might We" sticky note are included in the app. Participants are welcome to continue the discussion by responding to the sticky notes posted by their peers.
