Design Thinking

Let our years of expertise take you further than just the basics.

Design thinking is a mindset, it was born out of Agile principles by providing the missing aspects of human needs and experience.

The heart of Agile is to find solutions that adapt to changing needs. It is rapid, iterative, adaptive and rhythmic.

This cadence for innovation is well suited to any field, but for most organizations Agile alone lacks one singular aspect: humanity.

We can help instill a methodology for long-term sustainability and growth for your team.

How We Do It

We help set up long term experimental mindset processes to help clarify who you are selling what to.  The below graphic provides an illustrative description of our process implementation:

ITERATIVE AND INCREMENTAL BASED LEARNING

Bring a bit of Agile back into the fold: it is the natural precursor to successful design thinking.

We’ll help you implement methodologies to quickly develop the products, roll them out in little increments, gather feedback from customers and continue to develop without losing a beat.

The most important principle of human-centered design starts with empathy: without understanding your users, why and how they do what they do, what they need and how they think, it’s impossible to create anything meaningful to them. Design Thinking is really just a set of frameworks designers use to observe, engage, watch and listen to the users they are designing for. It’s a method of co-creation really, just a way to come up with ideas to test on users. There are a series of frameworks and exercises for each of the following Design Thinking modes:

Define Image
Ideate Image
Prototype Image

The ultimate goal of working through each of the modes is to iterate on your design until the users validate what has been created works for them. Design Thinkers embrace failure as an opportunity to get the solution right sooner rather than launch with something that doesn’t work for the user.

Digital Onion layers or weaves Design Thinking into Agile as a process to generate ideas to work through solving problems for users. During the Agile Sprints, the frameworks provide a consistent methodology for the team to use as they develop solutions.
