Why Work With Us?

We bring experience of design, data, lean & lean UX, agile, software development, 'principalling' at international product innovation consultancies, running consultancies and representing product/design as part of the C-suite.

This breadth of experience allows us to engage with all sectors of a business at whichever level is needed. We speak the shared languages of these domains and have experienced their pain points, which helps us to break down silos, and earn trust quickly and with honesty.

Apply a lean approach to product and service discovery and definition for a Scottish government related organisation.

As part of an extended digital transformation engagement involving wholesale culture shift, we worked with stakeholders across the business from C-Suite to developers, to frontline staff to discover, define and visualise the current state of play, a future desired state and the hurdles we might face in getting there.

The visualisations were used to frame the problems and solutions for the C-Suite and gain alignment around priorities and subsequently as framing for internal kick off workshops for each project.
