Every day, we wake up to the NEW.
This is not a choice, it is the essence of who we are and our dreams. We dedicate most of our energies to share the NEW with whomever we can. The NEW can be complicated to perceive, hard to understand and sometimes just an OLD in disguise.
During the day we will embrace the NEW and try to make it our PRESENT. We absolutely cannot do it alone. We need DREAM COMPANIONS that just like us cannot ignore the need for CREATION and constant improvement to who we are and what we do. Together with our DREAM COMPANIONS we wish to soar, to learn, and to make sure the NEW is possible, and does not have to be a threat to the OLD. We are well geared with patience and DECISIVENESS. Our travelbag contains an endless amount of aspirations and an-ticipation.
Our mind is ready to construct the perfect platforms on which we do it all. Some will find it cumbersome, some will grab it as an invitation to a journey of a lifetime. To the first we send our best regards, to the latter we say: “let’s talk!”
Design is multifaceted, multilayer and conveys many meanings. Importantly, it is both a verb and a noun, referring to a process and to a product, to an activity and to the result of that activity. Design is simultaneously a problem seeking and problem solving activity, a means to achieve desired goals not only the goal in itself. It is a creative process referring to every course of action aimed at changing existing situations into preferred ones, driving innovation to deliver value.
What we DOE
In the process of the design of education,(DOE) we observe, identify needs, seek and frame problems, work collaboratively, explore solutions, weigh alternatives, and communicate our ideas verbally and visually.The design process includes periods of self-assessment, critiques of work in progress, revisions and opportunities for reflection. We utilize a shift from a mono-modal and linear system of consulting to one characterized by the spatial organization of different modes. The emergent multimedia model means communicating through assemblage, through relationships among different types of creative expressions and discourses.
The fundamental skills and cognitive processes of the designer – holistic thinking, empathy, imagination, creativity, visualizing problems and solutions – are more critical to us than the traditional analytic skills used by typical consultants. Learning is our unit of progress. It is more important than making money, getting customers, building features, or engineering technical quality.
Those are important but only insofar as they contribute to learning what creates value to our customers. This learning can be validated by running experiments that allow us to test each element of the client’s vision. The fundamental activities we carry turn ideas into products, measure how customers react, and then learn whether to pivot or persevere. A successful process of consulting for us is geared to accelerate the feedback loop of build-measure-learn.
