What we deliver
No project ever starts with a blank canvas. In our groundwork phase, we bring ourselves up to speed with where you are, looking at existing data, past learnings and understanding your business’s broader objectives and KPIs.
Problem Framing is a design thinking method used to understand, define and prioritize complex business problems. In this one day workshop we will work with you to validate, justify and contextualise your challenges.
As with all things in life, preparation is key. We work together with your team to prepare the sprint and make the best use of everyone’s time and effort.
Once you have defined your problem, built our team and planned our agenda carefully, it’s time for the fun to begin! Our expert facilitators take you through a 4 day design sprint, keeping you motivated and on track with outcomes.
Report & Plan
Once the sprint is over, we collect and analyse our sprint findings, put them together in a detailed report along with your Design Sprint narrative, photo documentation, user testing results, conclusions and next steps.
Our Facilitation Style
Grounded in an understanding of organisational and human psychology, we facilitate based on three basic principles we believe bring out the best in each and every participant.
We connect with our clients, and strive to understand users and stakeholders alike.
We set the stage for successful teamwork and teach you how to work together.
We create opportunities for everyone to be heard.
What our team will help you do
Invest in the right opportunities
Make sure the challenges you work on are aligned with your business goals and relevant to your customers.
Derisk big projects
Avoid wasting time on ideas that don’t work by building and testing a prototype for just a fraction of the cost.
Break silos and drive collaboration
Involve the right people from the start, build solutions collaboratively and get your stakeholders on board with the solution.
