BUSINESS DESIGN

Human-centered approach to innovation

Business Design is an integrative process model to turn innovative ideas into business. The process works best when you are about to design and implement a new product, service or an entire business model, whilst facing a lot of uncertainties.

Business Design is based on a systematic development and learning cycle:

  • Plan: We design business models and experiments to test hypotheses. We define and prioritise our first market offerings and set up the execution.
  • Execute: We run the defined experiments and implement the initial market offerings in short cycles of seven weeks.
  • Learn: We analyse the findings from the experiments and reflect the status quo of our execution process.
  • Decide: We decide whether and how to improve our business model and the market offerings.
