Driving Strategy with Human Centered Design

 

By developing strategies in collaboration with our clients, powered by insights about users, we lay the groundwork for transformative possibilities.

We engage with clients in strategy workshops that analyze problems and opportunities from multiple perspectives, taking into consideration needs and expectations among the groups they serve. We expose key challenges and competitive risks as well as assess current approaches, legacy considerations, and help shape the vision for the future.

 

Clients that engage in our strategy workshops benefit in multiple ways

  • Accelerate Innovation Fueled by a Common Vision

  • Intentional Alignment of Key Stakeholder's Needs

  • Reduce Risk and Lower Costs with Early Alignment

Our Structured Workshop Models

After consulting with clients and actively listening to their distinct needs, we tailor workshop engagements based on what they are looking to achieve. Workshops we construct align with the following models:

  • Discovery Workshops

    • Discovery Workshops dive deep into understanding requirements for a site, along with consultative website planning to determine whether objectives will be best met whether your goal is development of a new site or revisions to an existing site.
  • Marketing and Brand Workshops

    • Marketing and Branding Workshops focus on defining organizational strategy for messaging and marketing by evaluating target audiences, determining goals, and determining distinct value propositions.
  • Design Workshops

    • User Experience and Design Workshops evaluate the user experience of a system in order to optimize navigation and content structures within a framework of the user journey. 
  • Architecture Workshop

    • Drupal Technical Workshops are highly consultative and provide a blueprint for the Drupal technical architecture and content strategy for clients that have their own development team, as well as those that engage with Promet Source as a development partner.
  • Accessibility Workshop

    • Accessibility Workshops offer an intensive examination of websites and all online resources for creating a roadmap  to achieve compliance with ADA Section 508 and WCAG 2.1.

Our Strategy Workshop Approach

Leveraging Human-Centered Design and Design Thinking methodologies, we facilitate conversations for synthesizing an outpouring of new ideas within the framework of organizational objectives. We define and drill down on the needs and expectations of key persona groups served. We move toward consensus among stakeholders from disparate functions. 

Facilitated workshops may range in length from one to five days. Groups range in size from intimate workgroups to large-scale conferences. We can accommodate onsite facilitation or remote groups with virtual workshops utilizing remote collaboration technologies.
