Create products, services, business models
New digital technologies are creating significant business discontinuities.
Do you know how to create empathy with users and customers? Which tech-nologies, applications, and use-cases to focus on? Which business models to pursue? Which relationships to create?
Understanding the customer experience through the user’s eyes enables a much deeper human-centered appreciation of how solutions align with needs. Engaging ecosystem partners and “strange bedfellows” in participatory design fosters an acute understanding of the potential business system to support a new solution.
Smart systems design needs to transcend discrete product or service innovation. Business developers must creatively imagine fully developed systems and whole marketplaces.
As much as we would like to offer a simple “linear” process and recipe to drive new smart systems innovation, the nature and complexity of Smart Systems and the Internet of Things makes that impossible.
CONSULTING & RESEARCH CAPABILITIES
Traditional strategy development and planning processes with their linear view and built-in bias toward the established and predictable, fail to prepare a company for change.

result, we combine domain knowledge, strategy and solutions and venture design
