Since 2010, Else has helped Innovators, catalysts, and leaders create new innovative products and services, and improve the fortunes of their organisation.
The people we work with are either causing disruption or responding to it, usually acting on a sixth sense for an opportunity or threat.
We work to explore those opportunities, bring them to life and create the cultural alignment that ensures their success.
We help clients identify new CX opportunities, and develop new strategies, to create innovative products and services.
From product strategy to customer-facing launch, we bring design leadership, core UX and interaction skills to experiences that create lasting business and customer value.
We work alongside our clients to help improve product performance — setting up better design practices, tools, workflows and systems.
The emergence of a new technology, a shift in consumer behaviour or some other competitor event can signal that your business has an opportunity to explore. Our innovation sprint helps teams clarify high-value opportunities and what it might take to deliver them.
Primer — helping you explore the signals for change.
The Primer is an entry point to Else’s experience design services, finely tuned for change agents, and their teams, to work out their pitch. It’s of high value, with minimal investment. A week-long strategic sprint that moves you from the point of sensing an opportunity to arriving at complete clarity on what the opportunity is. It culminates in creating a case for change.
We have three approaches to product and service innovation, depending on you’re start point and what you’re looking to achieve. In all cases, they deliver what we call effective innovation — the right solution and shared belief in what’s possible.
Accelerate — Looking to launch a new product or service experience into market?
For businesses looking to launch a new product or service, and to quickly define how it attracts an audience, engages them and evolves their experience over time.
This strategic approach to innovation has been designed to relate customer experience to the future value for your business and to outline practical steps to getting there.
Explore — Don’t have a specific service in mind but want to probe opportunities?
For organisations who want to explore opportunities to reimagine their current offer. For when businesses don’t have a specific service in mind but want to probe the future.
The ideas generated will be placed against 3 time horizons – things we can do now (inside 6 months), things we can do soon 6–12 months, things we should do later (18+ months)
Benchmark — Want to assess your position against a benchmark and how to improve?
For organisations who want to understand where the opportunities are to elevate their experience against the competition, both direct and indirect, and find new ways to deliver value from their digital estate.
This is an incremental approach to innovation with the aim of improving a current product or service that is already in market.
