Workshop Overview

The most critical question strategic leaders are grappling with is which business challenges to address using a corporate innovation drive and which ones should pass through a traditional strategic approach.
Problem Framing is a time-tested methodology evolved by our globally acclaimed partners, Design Sprint Academy, Berlin and customized for the Indian business context by QGLUE.

This 1-day workout involves the main stakeholders, typically executive level and business level decision-makers. Problem Framing is used primarily before running an Innovation Design Sprint or undertaking a design thinking journey.
  • Use a structured approach to discover and define the challenge space objectively for a Corporate Innovation Intervention (open innovation, Sprint, design thinking immersive or hackathon).
  • Learn how to align innovation challenge areas with strategic objectives.
  • Use the Algorithmic Approach from DSA- Berlin and TRIZ Methodology to frame the challenge areas with expected outcomes and criteria for success.


This program is designed for 15 participants who will work on a specific business challenge in groups of five. Participants will receive a DIY Guide, and the facilitator will guide teams across the entire journey. The engagement runs in a time-boxed sprint with individual and team activities in each module.
The workout has 4 phases. Each phase lasts for 60 minutes, followed by FAQ.
  • Discover an entirely new challenge area.
  • Align the challenge to corporate strategy.
  • Learn a repeatable and time tested method: ensure that we are defining the right challenge before launching a corporate innovation drive using a design-led approach.
  • Business innovation heads.
  • Strategy leaders.
  • Transformation program heads and managers.
  • Anybody wanting to find an answer to “Are we solving the right innovation challenge?”.


Our Design Sprint and design thinking experts conduct the entire workout in a live virtual format. The session utilizes remote collaboration tools like Zoom, GoToWebinar and Mural. Each module has virtual breakout sessions for participants to work on cases studies.
