UNDERSTAND. CREATE. ITERATE.
We've distilled decades of design leadership experience into a simple, flexible approach to helping our clients build, lead and scale design teams through fractional design leadership. This approach gracefully weaves the rigor of methodical, sequential processes together with rapid, iterative, test-and-learn frameworks that set our clients up for both short and long-term success.
Before the engagement, we spend time becoming familiar with you, your goals, your expectations, and (at a high level) the people, processes & culture that contribute to your current situation. This allows us to align on the approach, key outcomes and initial estimates of cost and timing before the official work begins.
During the engagement, we apply deep listening skills, empathy exercises, assessments and other techniques to understand the breadth and depth of your current situation and establish a baseline from which we measure future success.
Our understanding of the current-state unleashes us to envision the ideal future-state. We engage you and all relevant stakeholders in collaborative techniques to generate ideas, identify opportunities, prioritize specific improvements, and place these priorities on your 1, 3 & 5-year roadmaps.
We make progress toward our vision by employing proven, test-and-learn techniques. These techniques regularly put the people most impacted by our efforts at the center of attention, intentionally gathering their perspective, balancing that perspective with competing objectives and pivoting when necessary. This approach ultimately produces better, faster, more human-centered outcomes that carry strong buy-in from everyone involved/impacted.
