The Milky Enterprise Design Way

Welcome to learn more about how the Milky Way can help you take the next step to create faster innovation and change. A change grounded in your business’ situation. During this course you learn how to use the Milky Way to rapidly innovate and facilitate faster changes using an Enterprise Design Sprint.


We accomplish this by combining the Milky Way with Enterprise Design and see how Enterprise Design Sprints are a fast, workable approach to the whole business, (not only IT). This enables us to go from the big picture, to details and back to the big picture again: making the links visible, tracing performance and decisions, and engaging stakeholders.
