Why anticipate the future?

In a market characterized by technological disruptions, social tensions, and divergence of consumer habits, it is key for companies to anticipate information about society’s future changes in behaviors, demands, values and meaning in order to make strategic business decisions and get to market with innovative offers ahead of their competitors.

 

What is The Sprout Studio?

The Sprout is a Paris-based studio specialized in anticipating the future through scenario-building with the goal of designing innovative market strategies.

With the aid of The Sprout’s principles, tools, and techniques each project begins with a trend analysis and future scenario building, resulting in the development of powerful ideas that will express a company’s innovation objectives.

 

How does The Sprout methodology predict the future?

We use a qualitative method based on research and interpretation of facts, rather than mere statistics, while integrating and analyzing tangible and intangible factors, structured and unstructured information. This approach gives meaning to seemingly disjointed signals of changes. Quantitative data is then used as a complement to qualitative factors.

 

Who are The Sprout online workshops and webinars directed towards?

Professionals and students in marketing, design, management and research who are curious about how to anticipate the future and how to take advantage of this knowledge for business or personal reasons.

 

Can I take any of The Sprout courses if I’m not from the above mentioned backgrounds?

Yes, of course! No previous experience is required as we’ll take you step-by-step through the method and we’ll answer ‘live’ any questions or doubts you might have. Our students’ groups are generally quite heterogenous.

 

What is the difference between an interactive workshop and an interactive webinar?

An online workshop is quite interactive as the number of participants is limited to 12 people. Participants are expected to exchange ideas with us and the rest of the group in an open conversation that will benefit everyone.

An online interactive webinar is more like a conference that is broadcast live to a larger audience. Interaction is limited to a Q&A session at the end of the webinar where we will select some of the questions asked by the audience via messages though our broadcasting platform.

 

How can I register and pay for The Sprout online workshop and webinars?

First, you will need to select the workshop or webinar that interests you and make sure the date and time at which it happens are convenient for you as all our courses are live.

Once you have filled in the Registration Form you will be prompted to pay using a valid credit card through our secure payment system. Easy!

 

What if I register and pay for a workshop or webinar and, at the last minute, I cannot attend? Can I be refunded?

Unfortunately, once the payment has been processed we will not be able to refund you.  However, the workshop or webinar will be recorded and you’ll be able to access the webinar or workshop at your convenience.

 

Can I ask someone else to follow the online workshop or webinar for me if, for some reason, I cannot attend?

The courses are not transferable. You can email us at hello@thesproutstudio.net with any specific requests you may have that we haven’t accounted for in this section.

 

What broadcasting platform do you use to transmit the online workshops and webinars?

We use the platform ZOOM for all our broadcastings.
