How We Start with You

Initial Consult and Discovery
You can expect us to do a deep dive to understand your requirements fully and what your visions are regarding your business. This typically is done over multiple interviews and workshops to ensure we’re tackling the root problem and paving the right way forward.
Project Scoping
After initial discovery, we discuss the results of our consultation engagements and identity the best course of action to hit KPIs and deliver the highest ROI. Our scope of work will outline key objectives, our processes and methodology, and the desired goal/outcome of the project.
Estimation and Proposal
Once all parties agree on the scope of work, we submit a detailed proposal with an executive summary, an overview of processes and methods, estimated costs, and a general timeline.

  • Understand Objectives

    We kick things off by conducting an in-depth diagnostic to understand where you’re at and where you need to be. Through workshops and interviews, we distill things down to the root of the problem and pave the right way forward.

  • Gather Insights

    We gather company and user insights through our data-driven approach, which helps us fine-tune a strategic plan and roadmap ideal for achieving business goals and the highest ROI.

  • Collaborative Design
