Our Proven Methodology Framework

Product / Tech

We have deliberately put our product and technology talent into one team, to form a set of skills able to define and deliver the needs of market, customer, data, technology, and monetisation in an optimised manner. An overall methodology that is market & design/customer & data driven.

Ideation

Our initial step is a laser-focused understanding of the innovation objectives, combined with the market / customers needs via relevant insight + technical and economic criteria. We then ideate amongst the combined teams often using DWG’s controlled workshop/hot-house methodology. Resulting in a number of ideas, ranked systematically, typically focusing on 1-3 for the next stage.

Concept / Prototype

For those selected, each is then defined using a combination of market insight combined with a customer experience / gamification focus. Definition covers all necessary elements of use-case and domain led development – business process and user-experience, wire-framing, relevancy mapping, monetisation optimisation, discovery (SEO) & advocacy (social media) needs and GTM discovery, platform & data architecture and more. Resulting in core success criteria and measurement points. As needed, prototyping is used to gain initial feedback in market or enterprise.

Build / Test

Via development partners, using our product and technical blue-prints. Delivered using an appropriate methodology to the task, but always measured, flexible, agile and fast-paced, with high quality built in.

GTM / Monetise

Roll-out and monetisation occurs as per the GTM plan, with core success criteria constantly measured to identify improvements or sun-setting. All the time our team mentors in-house teams for eventual hand-over.

This framework is flexibly structured to allow clients to select the breadth and depth of the insight required, to meet their budget and needs.

The Benefits

As well as ensuring innovation and future-proofed considerations are protected, limiting the risk of legacy. Ultimately benefiting the top and bottom-line of any organisation into the future
