participants from DIVERSE BACKGROUNDS & EXPERTISE
MBA Corporate lawyer, moving to tech (CHANGER)
"The best part was coming out of the experience feeling more confident talking about product management, knowing I don't need a chunk of knowledge to be more credible. It's more about practice."
Entrepreneur, venture FundRaising (Founder)
"I'd been thinking about my venture for a 8 months but now thanks to WorkSprint I'm in the YCombinator product school to continue working on it."
Investment analyst and founder of real estate fund (changer)
"It's very scary releasing your solution, and challenging framing your problem without anchoring too early on a solution. A major thing I took out of this process is what a market signal looks like."
Front End Developer, building experience (maker)
"Normally it takes months to make something, but I built our product in a day. I also liked how diverse the people were and that we worked with people from around the world."

Follow Our Story
We're an open startup. If you'd like to follow our venture or hear about upcoming work sprints, please sign up below.
It’s a product bootcamp.
It’s an online startup accelerator.
It’s an online product management course.
It’s a maker studio.
It’s a future of work agency.
It’s a product coaching service.
We’re beyond that.
We’re a society.
We focus on meaningful experiences rather than codified knowledge to learn.
We believe in emerging practices and not best practices.
We celebrate imperfection rather than standardisation.
We know everyone wins when knowledge expands without borders.
We value intuition/holism over logic and reductionism.
We like polarizing voices and deep personal cultures.
We like activist and conscious professionals.
We like people who want more and are unsatisfied with the status quo.
We believe work is personal.
We believe work is imperfect.
We believe work is more psychological than rational. And all of that is ok.
We believe what people work on and how people choose to work have a big impact on our world’s big problems. Work is how we create our realities and if we don’t do it well (meaningfully, consciously and sustainably), our realities will suffer.
We believe that the conversation of what is value has been silenced by the extreme view that the market is the only thing that matters. That is leading to distasteful products and services and is dehumanising the culture of work.
How we work together needs reform through a new culture(s) of work. That is why we are creating a space where we explore, develop and perform emerging work practices that create real and meaningful value for business, individuals' careers and society.
We’re starting our journey on what is referred to broadly today by product management. This is because we believe that, as our societies digitise, the various types of careers that fall under its umbrella are going to be the most impactful to our future realities.
We deliver coaching, advisory, bespoke engagements services and create spaces where you can experience a different kind of work. We help organisations reform through product culture and we grow our community. We also like to think we’re providing thought leadership and at the very least, bringing back vital topics to the table for an active debate.
How does it work?
You show up. You join a team. Then the team starts building. Simple and Real. You’ll work in a virtual organisation alongside other cohort teams each working on their own problems. The outcome for each team is a testable product. Just as in a real workplace, your work will be facilitated by senior product people according to emerging practices in the field, but don’t expect to be lectured.
What is the timeline?
Runtime: We recommend 10 hours per week at least, including team debriefs (4.5 hours)
Just as in a real workplace, how much time you spend working is up to you and your team. We care about the outcomes only.
You’re only required to show up online for 3 team debriefs, 1.5 hrs each on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Timezone: BST time.
Who is this for?
We’re looking for people with a Curious, Crossfunctional and Creative mindset, regardless of their backgrounds.
Biz, Design, Developers
When is the next
We will run the program monthly:
Jan 15th - openFeb 15th
What is the cost?
Cost is £250 per person payable upon acceptance
Can I get a refund?
Our intention is to provide the best team-based learning experience available for product. If the program does not meet your expectations, we will honor refunds for participants who complete the full Work Sprint and offer thorough feedback on the experience
