Corporate Strategy Sprint

For: large businesses

The Advanced Urban Services sector is already worth £5 billion. As it becomes better defined and more widely acknowledged the market is forecast to grow rapidly. Already businesses and cities are forging partnerships to meet growing demand for smart products and services. But rapid urbanisation means both sides are struggling to implement the right strategy and provide the best solutions.

We’ll help you understand your current market position and capabilities so you can establish a smart cities roadmap that priorities relevant products and services. At an organisational level we can develop proven processes and strategies that facilitate a focus on and growth in Advanced Urban Services. We’ll also be able to offer more direct routes to market.

How it works

The Sprint is a short (one day to one week), intensive process that:

  • Helps you understand your position in the Advanced Urban Services sector
  • Gives you insight into the best practices for corporate smart city strategy
  • Establishes priorities for you in the form of a roadmap

Our team can give you more detailed information about how the Sprint works connect@futurecities.catapult.org.uk.

Case study: Nike Explore

We facilitated a one-day sprint for the Nike Explore Team to discuss how Nike can position themselves in the Advanced Urban Services sector. We deep-dived into their lighthouse projects, exploring potential new areas in which Nike could make a difference (e.g. active urban mobility and an acceleration programme with startups).
