Product Strategy

There are no good products with an inconsistent vision. You’ll need the help of battle-tested frameworks and experienced product professionals to create offerings that people will love and enjoy. Here’s how we start with helping companies with their product strategy:

  • Why, How, and What: Start with Why (purpose), then How (values, actions and differentiators), and then What (products and results for the users);
  • Clear product vision and focused strategy: Set a long-term vision and aspiration for the product; however, we'll start small by dividing the idea into smaller chunks as a working hypothesis to validate;
  • Creative disruption: Conduct brainstorming sessions to design products that can be faster, higher quality, more efficient, and more durable than those offered by competitors;
  • Concept testing: Create a work plan that includes product vision, as well as market and customer research.

Service Design

Service design is about planning and organizing resources to optimize output. Its end goal is to holistically cater to your users' needs by going beyond the delivery of services through an app or device. It invites you to consider your offering not only from the end-to-end perspective but also from surface to core.

When reengineering your company’s offering, we’ll look at the three P’s of service design:

  • People: Everyone who creates the service, uses it afterwards, or is in any way indirectly affected by it particularly employees, customers, and partners;
  • Props: All artifacts (physical or digital) necessary in order to perform the service properly, such as apps, social media accounts, and physical devices;
  • Processes: Relevant procedures, workflows, or rituals carried out by service providers, end-users, and everyone in-between.
