Behaviour Sprint

In this short, high-intensity innovation sprint, we will identify the hidden factors influencing your customers’ decisions. Together, we will uncover opportunities to improve their experience and the success of your product, service or programme.

WHY FOCUS ON BEHAVIOUR?

Nobel prize winning science established that human behaviours are neither random nor senseless — they are systematic. We all make the same types of mistakes over and over. The big opportunity lies in helping people not make those mistakes.

Fortune 500 companies are working with behavioural scientists in house to deliver competitive advantage and drive business growth. What their competitors are ignoring or marginalising, they are leveraging and maximising.

Whatever the outcome you’re trying to achieve, the challenges are always rooted in behaviour.

WHERE WE HELP

Whether it’s helping people manage their finances, encouraging active travel, or establishing healthy eating habits, the challenges are always rooted in behaviour. Your challenge is likely to be:

  • increasing uptake of a new product, service or programme;
  • increasing the chances that someone will engage with your product or service;
  • reducing drop-off in sign-up and midway through key journeys;
  • bridging the gap between stated customer intention and the required action;
  • creating long-term habits around usage or consumption.

We will help you discover hidden challenges, diagnose your customers’ behaviour in the moments that matter most and develop routes to deliver behaviour change that will improve your product or service outcomes.

Together we will:

  • Get Specific: Zoom in on the key behavoiurs that you want to change
  • Get Scientific: Identify the Behavioural Science principles associated with the behavoiur
  • Get Solutions: Develop ideas that enable the behaviour change

WHAT TO EXPECT

A Behaviour Sprint is typically run over one or two weeks with your team. If a shorter sprint isn’t feasible, then we can tailor the engagement to fit your requirements.

BUT WHAT IS BEHAVIOURAL DESIGN?

The power of behaviour design lies in understanding which decisions are crucial to nudging users’ actions towards desired outcomes. It is this understanding that allows us to make a big impact where it counts. Behaviour design is a powerful supplement to human-centered design methods, not a replacement. It combines the rigour and depth of behavioural science with the creativity of design thinking to identify and tweak pivotal moments of decision making, exponentially increasing your product or service’s success.

Behaviour design is, in a nutshell, is a set of techniques and patterns you can use to change the way people behave and make decisions. It should be wielded to help people meet their goals, not make them meet yours. It will deliver new insight and ideas, more effective prototypes and the ability to evidence results as you scale.
