Benefit from the power of design tools
Teams know how to solve their problems.
Your teams can solve their problems. But sometimes a day does not have enough hours to fit everything that demands your attention. It really is not easy to meet all your obligations in the day-to-day and still solve that nagging problem in the back of your head that you just can't make time for.
Often, as an internal team you may just find it hard to forge solutions while looking at the problem from within the processes that created it in the first place. All you need is a fresh mind that helps you break the cycle.
With SOLVE I offer a fresh eye and my problem-solving skills with a heavy emphasis on speed. The different programs I have put together are generally a combination of consulting and facilitation formats that involve the existing product team but unload some of the heavy lifting in the design process from them so they can keep working in their existing capacity while working on solving a new problem at the same time.
The reason why I am involved as a designer typically is connected to a problem with an existing product, the need to extend or transform it or otherwise change something about an existing offering or situation. While I love to help with my external expertise I insist on doing this together! All team members in these programs will learn new methods, tools, and techniques for problem-solving by applying them directly in the project. They will benefit in their day-to-day work.
Each of these programs make the most sense in a real project or product development environment and will be tailored to your topic. If you are on your journey already, I also offer to coach teams in each of the phases. Do you need help with your individual creative challenge? Please get in touch to learn more about each of the programs and how to shift gears between the phases.
