Not sure where to start with your product, startup or service efforts? Let’s start with your customer and the drawing board. We use Design Sprints to compress work that would usually take months into days. Whether you need a new product from scratch, something drastically improved or just a difficult question answered ready for pitch for funding.

  • Do you need a new digital product, app or service, tested and ready for funding?
  • Your organisation can’t deliver a seamless customer experience strategy?
  • You have an idea and looking to build an MVP and pitch deck?
  • Do you lack on understanding your customer needs?
  • Focused on old processes rather than principles?
  • Looking forward optimising the current processes with lean, agile and digital solutions?
  • Your brand proposition isn’t cohesive alongside every channel?
  • Your marketing team can’t access information gathered by your own systems?
  • Your organisation is multi-channel already and you’ve been running digital services and products for some time but delivery and performance is too slow?
  • There’s no clarification about your customer’s best practices?
  • Not many ideas, but if there’re great ideas for improvement take too long to get to market?
  • Is the way we work slowing the ship down?

Integrating and improving DevOps/DesignOps in their product development process, creating culture of innovation and organisational change with Design Thinking + Design doing + Design culture + Digital inside (4Ds)

Is hard to focus on business as ‘usual’ (where usual is challenging enough) – and at the same time grow to organisation innovation along the road of digital transformation.

  • How do I change my culture to drive innovation?
  • How can you build my team to validate our hypothesis and disrupt ourselves before someone else does it for us?
  • how do we bring capabilities to rethinking the market, rethinking the business and rethinking the technologies required to enable a much bolder future?
  • How do I embed – and activate – my vision & strategy?

We firmly believe that there is no reason to innovate if you don’t have ways to sustain it.

This is the fastest way to shift your organisation’s innovation (a Design Sprint to rapid discovery and training or a Design Thinking workshop environment for up to 30 staff). Get quick wins, human-centric ideas or create digital culture rapidly. It requires your team highly involved and our team collaborates onsite with your team to assess and define the problem/challenge, get an alignment and empower people to co-design the right digital decisions.

Rapid Discovery & Design Sprints typically take place within 5 working days to 6 weeks with engagements.

Problem/customer lab

A project with potential impact

Discover, design, test and implement world-class customer experiences and edge solutions, or even disrupt yourself. It usually covers Human-centred Research, Visual Thinking, lean UX & startup and agile dev phases of the end-to-end innovation framework.

It begins with an on-site, market, customer and technical discovery sessions, followed by prototyping, validation and development of deliverables as well as business assessment to sustain the product/process activation innovation portfolio.

Typically they range from 2 to 5 months, sometimes it only takes 1 month for rapid prototyping.
