Products and Innovation
We make products that prove the value of innovation
We often hear from clients that they feel “stuck” in one way or another, unable to move as quickly as is required to capitalize on emergent market opportunities and adapt to shifting customer needs.
The roots of immobility can typically be traced to a combination of factors including legacy technologies; organizational inertia or lack of focus; and the absence of a process for identifying, validating and maturing innovations.
We help established companies behave more like successful startups—to operate with a clear sense of purpose, urgency and discipline. We typically start by diagnosing the causes of immobility and partnering with our clients to identify opportunity spaces but shift as early as possible to learning and innovating by doing, establishing a platform for ongoing experimentation and market validation. Depending on the company's needs and ambitions, we either engage in shorter cycles to reach key validation milestones or over longer time frames to take the products we build all the way to market.
