Asking for a retainer?
I’ve working with client marketing project and is coming to an end. Our agreement was a fix fee but there is still things to do. How would ask for a monthly retainer? How would phrase it?

@Kathryn Davis thank you. I’ve not thought about the “retainer” trigger. I like how you phrased the request. I’ll start from there.

@Salah Bouchma good point, so I’ll include SOW.
1.5 hour strategy workshop - £1k
Hi all, I thought i'd share an interesting workshop I ran recently - hopefully it's helpful for someone else who has a similar challenge or brief! The client is a large charity and this was their brief: Produce a short vision statement for our future digital fundraising and engagement and the required transformation over our strategy period (they obviously shared context of their org strategy etc). I split this up into two stages: 1) Vision & 2) Required Transformation. Here are the exercises I ran: 1️⃣ Vision ➡️ Lightning Demos (this helped us focus on the market and the team created some really great How Might Wes). We clustered these to use as stimulus for the next exercise. ➡️ Vision Statement Drawing. People drew their vision statement and presented back to the group. I was mindful that if we asked people to write them they would get caught up in the language rather than the overall concepts. We asked them to share their vision and gathered the main themes. 2️⃣ Required Transformation ➡️ We then essentially did a Lightning Decision Jam which I don't need to explain! This was a fun one to run but I was very worried about timings, we did get everything done on time though which was a relief! I was constantly talking about pace and how it's going to feel like everything is going WAY too fast before and during the workshop and I think that helped a lot! They just could not get people together for longer but all worked out ok! I've had some really positive feedback from the client and recently ran a training session for them too so hoping to run more sessions with them next year 😁 Shout if you have any questions! 😀

Congrats @Louis Childs. Can you walk me through how you guides the group from lighting demos to HMWs?
@Chris Green HiChris Lighting Demo is an exercise where participants get inspiration from other companies or products. And then share their choices with what and why they like it.

B2B design sprints test
Hey everyone, I'm specializing myself in design sprints, and there's a challenge I'm facing now that I'm running a "simulation" to train myself. This challenge being that for B2B projects, I have no idea how the test on the last day could work. Does anyone have a clue or could share some insights? Thank you for your time!

Joseph, Focus on the audience you plan to serve. customers, clients, employees etc) Since you are ruining a DS, you might have gathered idea that solve a problem. From the top ideas, list what assumptions you’re making. Ask what needs to be true for this idea to be a success? Create experiments for the most critical assumptions. For instance, value proposition; revenue model, etc. I hope this helps.
Help with facilitating my first official workshop.
Hi everyone, please I need your help on this one. I’m a fresh graduate and I have an opportunity to return to the university where I got my first bachelor degree to organise a design thinking workshop. The workshop will be will be for 96 students split into 8 groups of 12 & the workshop will hold for 2 days. The students have no previous know-how of design thinking and at the end of the workshop they need to pitch a product/service idea to a jury (like the series Dragon’s Den). Please I’ll appreciate any help & tips regarding how I can make this a successful experience for both the students and my self. It’s a big opportunity for my career and I really want to make the best out of it. Thank you in advance.

@Elijah Shoroye how did it go? I don’t know if it still time, I was wondering that if instead of students pitching their bus idea to judges, they do a “customer interview” (kind of a customer fit validation) with the judges - each group present converse with two judges. (The rest of the jury observe and takes notes) Once all the student groups are done. The jury deliberates on what idea has a better customer fit. And provide advice on how to improve the interview experience.
