Our Meta Process & How We Work

As part of our consulting branch we perform organizational consulting, develop company’s information strategy, conduct feasibility studies or calculate solutions cost.
Derived from our meta work process, we - within our consulting services - focus on understanding clients challenges, concept work and selecting the best possible solution to solve identified inifficiencies. Focusing on the first three steps of our meta process, we have scientifically worked out a set of methods that best fit each steps needs.
Along with a focus on the first three steps of our meta process, tasks like analysing an organisation's data, determining information system requirements, making soft- and hardware recommendations, defining project objectives, compiling and presenting information and various other tasks form our backlog of work.
[Examples of how we tackle tasks are presented below]

Understanding the Client and his Challenge

Design Thinking (DT) based Workshops to understand Clients Challenges.

EMPATHIZE
DEFINE
IDEATE

What our DT-based workshop looks like: Empathize, the first activity, is the very base step of how we try to understand clients challenges. Important techniques that often come to action are interviews and observations. In the second phase, clients needs are recorded and converted into problems by techniques like a stakeholer map or the desk research method. The ideation phase then serves to generate radical and alternate solutions. This phase often is implemented by answering various how-might-we questions.

What we offer: S to M-sized Workshops.

Solving Clients Challenge by Prototyping

Design Sprint (DS) based Workshops to solve Clients Challenges.

IDEATE
PROTOTYPE
TEST

What our DS-based workshop looks like: Our DS-based workshop is split into three activities mostly spread over 3 to 5 days. Similiar to the last activity of the DT-based workshop, within the ideation phase, various ideas are generated based on clients challenge in the first step. We then switch into a prototyping mode to actually build prototyps which are further used for evaluation. Finally, the by now built prototyp, is used to generate actual user feedback. Rather than working on a concept level, this workshop format is more of a hands-on type to generate output that might as well be used in future project stages.

What we offer: M to L-sized Workshops.
