Data Driven Ideation Services
Companies are buried in data, both historical and an ever-growing base of newly acquired data, but often lack the resources of skill, time, or applications to transform this data into meaningful knowledge.
80% of the work in leveraging data is in the preparation. We onboard quickly and operate in a targeted way to clean, organize, and transform your relevant existing data or market research into knowledge.
We then bring the best of class approaches in visualization and data mining to explore data collections and identify key relationships and insights.
While data can tell us something of the past and present, we can also us it to help us understand potential futures.
What financial outcomes can we expect? If we are going to move the needle, how much can we move it, and what is the broader impact operationally?
Using existing data and information from Design Thinking Sessions, Focus Groups, or other qualitative sources we develop models and dashboards that define potential futures. We articulate likely outcomes and risks from different approaches in launching a new product or service or making changes to an existing one.
While data and models may help us predict and understand potential futures, they are often based on the past and include meaningful assumptions or reasonable unknowns. Whether it is a statistical model based on millions of data points or a lean canvas map outlining a new startup there is an initial and ongoing need to validate the model.
We help clients efficiently validate models through focus groups, surveys, “MVP’s” and control sets.
Ongoing validation is the difference between a idea and a great product or service. To continue benefiting from models and projections, they need to be continually revisited and refined.
Once a new product or service idea or planned operational change has reached a launch stage, it is challenging to reach the right audience, in the right way and at the right time to be successful.
We work with clients to leverage data in informing key parts of a launch strategy, including market segmentation studies driven by GIS data or internal data collections.
We help you identify who to target for your initial launch and how to stage the launch with target audiences.
