CREATING THE FUTURE.

We are a team of bright people with an entrepreneurial spirit and a passion for taking complex problems and creating innovative solutions.

For example, we recently worked with a client to create a digital assistant to deliver a new person-centred service. In 14 weeks we engaged over 100 customers in research, ran multiple design sessions and built a working prototype that combined a mix of technologies including Artificial Intelligence (AI), mobile, big data, machine learning, cloud and social media platforms.

We also provided our client with a delivery plan and a business case. It’s no good having a good idea if you can’t deliver it and it won't make any money!

WORKING WITH US.

Delivering innovation and transformational change is hard. Most organisations' DNA is tuned to be operationally efficient, not disruptive.  Change needs energy and some radical thinking. That’s what we bring to the party.  We push people out of their comfort zone and help them shift their thinking and see different alternatives to the status quo. It’s hard and it takes a lot of energy, yours and ours, but it’s a lot of fun!

Collaboration is a bit of a cliche these days, but that’s exactly how we work: openly and in partnership with our clients. For example, if you work with us you’ll need to take part in daily stand ups, research and ideation sessions, you'll have to make fast decisions and put time aside to attend weekly show and tells. Your customers will also need to be fully engaged too, after all, the solutions are for them.
'An idea is nothing more than a new combination of old elements.'

OUR APPROACH.

We use a Design Thinking and Lean Start-up approach. To us, that means understanding people’s needs, designing solutions for them and taking action to test out those ideas quickly and cost effectively. You learn a huge amount by taking action.

We also make the most of the fact that we were born from a technology consultancy, BJSS, with over 25 years' experience of delivering enterprise IT solutions to some of the world's biggest organisations. Our design and prototyping teams include architects, engineers and project managers with deep experience of delivering solutions in complex environments at scale. It means our ideas are firmly rooted in the art of the possible.

OUR EXPERIENCE.

Client credentials are always tricky for us because the work we do is typically at the leading edge of the market and is commercially sensitive. We have an obligation to our clients to not give too much away. If we were working with you, you wouldn't want us to share your value-adding ideas and innovations, so we don't.

Instead, we came up with the concept of the Innovation Lab: a series of projects we've run internally as a team that showcase the type of projects we do and the way we work. You'll see projects that combine and mix a number of technologies including data science, big data, service design, mobile, cloud, AI...
