Adopting ideas from Stanford d.school.
Design Thinking as a method was developed by the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design (Stanford d.school). It has five steps, applied applied in an iterative loop: Empathize; Define; Ideate; Prototype; and, Test.
It all starts with Empathy Mapping.
Empathy Mapping allows all stakeholders to express ideas in different ways, unhindered by undue fear or negativity. With receptivity, rapport and trust established, stakeholders can create meaningful Empathy Maps.
Tangible results from innovation.
Our Design Lab is built on a scalable network of like-minded people, grounded in the real world. We commit to delivering measurable value outcomes. We know time is money, so we remove this risk for you.
Design Thinking drives innovation.
Design Thinking, when applied to the widest network of stakeholders and subject matter experts, enables value to be better quantified, and risks to be reduced. Creating receptivity and rapport leads to trust.
Eisenhower meets Churchill.
Our Tools enable the constant reprioritisation of Tasks into the 4 Ds: Do; Develop; Delegate; or, Delete. This is inspired by Dwight Eisenhower, former President of USA - underpinned by Churchill's 'Action This Day'.
Design Principle 01.
When designing a Web, mobile or SaaS app, the first thing to create is its journey: the path, steps or tasks that users will complete in providing a service, undertaking work or solving a big and important problem.
Design Principle 02.
When users get confused with apps, it's usually because what they are confronted with on a page view offers too many choices of what to do next. Often, there is no obvious place to go or action to take next.
Design Principle 03.
When designing a Meaningful Journey and applying Fierce Reduction, it is better to have more clicks or swipes through pages of an app, than add too many options in any given page or screen view.
