This first method, Incremental Increase, is probably the first that comes to mind when you talk about speed building.

The concept is simple: you start out at a very comfortable tempo, where you have absolutely no problem playing the lick, and then you gradually raise the tempo in small increments.

How big the increments are is up to you, but generally, around 4-8 bpm is recommended. Sometimes I increase it in increments of 1 or 2 bpm, if I'm really struggling with a certain lick.
