During two days in January 2019, nine business faculty from seven institutions and three states (VA, NC, OH) worked together to develop a testbank for the open textbook, Fundamentals of Business. This library-planned and facilitated work sprint was designed as a productive, capacity-building, and network-enriching event for college and university instructors who use the open textbook Fundamentals of Business in introductory-level business courses. It was also held to explore and build capacity among librarians regarding the use of work sprint methods as a method for creation of scholarly works, encouraging multi-institutional collaboration, and creating opportunities for in-situ faculty (and librarian) development.

This seven-minute lightning talk presents the rationale, planning process, collaborative model, schedule, resources used, and outcomes of the testbank sprint.
