Collaborative Consulting and Engineering to Deliver Tangible Results
Business Design – Innovation meets Experience
When needed, our approach mixes research, full project and business model prototyping and organizational design in parallel. We define an ideal solution and work backwards to identify key intermediate steps that can be launched quickly, and new business prototyping to confirm and refine ideas in the marketplace before a large-scale launch. We look for white space in the business ecosystem, flesh out emerging opportunities with the data required to support investment decisions and work with clients across functional boundaries to develop plans for prototyping, launching and refining new products and services.
Service Design – Servitization at its Best
Designing services that work requires holistic understanding of a company’s total ecosystem. Our team is expert in all aspects of service design and delivery: environments, communications, maintenance know-how, customer interaction, process re-engineering and service operations. For existing services, we map the customer’s journey to understand how they perceive the service, what is their experience and design ways to improve it. For new services, we envision the ideal customer experience and design specific interactions that will bring that experience to life. Our service design team collaborates across client organizations, with external firms and our own experts. Via prototyping elements of both the business model and service experience in parallel, we quickly discard weak ideas and refine the strong ones. We test back-office operations and front-line delivery, while gaining buy-in from key stakeholders. We’ve made powerful B2B services designs across a wide range of public and private organizations and industries, including regional development organizations, city support organizations, forestry, pulp & paper, wind energy, wire & cable, hoisting systems, transportation, energy and marine in different cultures and language areas.
