Our client engagement process

Understanding client goals

Understanding is the first phase of the design thinking process with clients. During this phase, our consultant immerse themselves in learning the problem/challenges/needs. They talk with the key stakeholders and conduct research as required. The goal is to develop background knowledge through these experiences. They use their developing understandings as a springboard as they begin to design a response to the challenges.
