Design products, services, business models
Developing new networked products, services and smart systems can be very challenging.
Do you know how to create empathy with users and customers? Which technologies, 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 and customer experiences. Engaging customers and partners in participatory design fosters an acute understanding of the impacts of compelling user experience and a deeper appreciation of the underlying technologies and systems that inform new distinct solutions.
Smart systems design needs to transcend discrete product or service innovation. Business designers and developers need to creatively imagine fully developed systems and whole marketplaces.
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.
