Are you seeing the forest for the trees?
We all get lost in the weeds of our day to day activities. We come in to pull you out. With a new vantage point, problems look different and solutions come from places you would not expect. Yet it is not simply about a new vision; you need a path too. A clear, actionable plan to focus on. The key attribute of our frameworks is that they mesh creative problem solving with process oriented grids. We use design-centric tools to think big and our engineering roots to plan deep.
Establish Your Core
We believe in a set of core principles and processes that drive your business. To establish this core, we take you through one or all of our products listed below, depending on your organizational genre, needs, and competencies. These products are for start-ups and established companies alike. Each consists of a 1-2 day collaborative workshop and a follow up report generated by our team.
Organizations are not humans. So they don't have the innate value that humans do, but they certainly do have an identity. This identity drives values, culture, and ultimately contributes extensively to the success of the organization. We have developed a framework for establishing and communicating your business identity. This process will truly pay dividends for years.
Business Model Prototyping
Business model prototyping is a collaborative and highly communicable approach to iterating your business model. This workshop is typically used for startups but is also ideal for any organization looking for a fresh outlook. Our approach utilized a series of tools which extract the essential attributes of your business and translate them onto communicable frameworks. Fresh ideas always come from this process, such as new customers segments, innovative value propositions, or sustainable revenue streams.
Identity Based Strategic Planning
We believe in vision that leads to action. We also believe in vision that is driven by identity. So we start by defining your identity, then we press on to blue sky thinking with your core principles acting as guardrails, and last we land the plane with a robust action plan. In a workshop setting, we employ our processes to extract your latent creative potential and create a 2-5 year strategy that will guide your organization.
There is always a bottleneck in manufacturing environments. Organizations are no different. There is an aspect of your business that is not only inefficient in itself, but it is actually bogging down the organization's creation of value. But we are not just talking about processes, we are talking about systems. This includes people, practices, culture, as well as processes. Whether the hard part is locating the bottleneck or understanding what to do about it, we are ready to help. Both our teams will collaborate for 2-5 days. You bring your deep knowledge of your world. We'll bring our system design tools.
Business System reDesign
There are a number of reasons that you may need to redesign one of your business systems. You may have grown rapidly and you need to set a new foundation. On the other hand, it may be time for a pivot. Regardless, assembling a team consisting of front level employees to leadership to systemically rethink and reform your world creates tremendous alignment and clarity. Our reDesign methodology guides the journey. It starts with understanding the current state of the business system, segues into unconstrained design, and ends with implementation. It also means change. Managing the psychology of change is often half the battle in large scale design initiatives. We come with years of experience in the arena-we will walk with your leadership team as the waves of acceptance and push-back ebb and flow until you finally reach the tipping point.
