The 100 Day Design and Innovation Program is a framework I created at Fjord that represents the next wave of digital innovation methodologies that can be offered to clients. Its a coherent set of interdependent design processes that dictates how a company can search for problems and deliver innovative solutions like a start-up.


Why 100 Days?

Innovation is not an event or department, it's the output of a culture and journey. I have observed that consequential solutions are very difficult to accomplished in novel one week workshops, in business-as-usual environments, or with teams lacking the tools, knowledge and guidance they need to succeed. 100 days is the standard on how progress is measured, like when a new CEO begins their role, so its a great place to begin the journey. It is also my first answer when asked, “How long does innovation take?” I can confidently and boldly say that this can be done together in 100 days. The truth is, this program combines with a series of other innovation propositions to feed a continuous culture of innovation.

Service Design-led Innovation

Framework & Playbook

With everything we do, we aim to challenge the status quo. The 100 Days of Innovation Program was created with one big idea; to evolve the way we generate ideas, prioritize and refine concepts, and develop them into new service offerings that people will love.

Facilitated Experience

Work Together as One

We are the experts who can guide client team members through design led innovation to collaboratively solve the problems emerging in their business. Ideally, this will also lead to a massive positive cultural change on how these companies will operate and thrive in the future.

Minimum Lovable Product

Co-Create with Purpose

Making is the moment that talking stops and things get real. Its a commitment that we do together because before that moment everything is just an opinion. Amazing design visions with great principles and inspirational concepts create zero value for companies if we are not able to implement, test and make real.

The biggest threat to innovation is internal politics and an organizational culture, which does not accept failure and/or does not accept ideas from outside, and/or cannot change.
