Product Engineering

img workshop 03@3x.png

Over the years of developing software, we have worked closely with our clients to not only deliver technically sound software, but also provide them with support in generating real bottom-line benefits with their products. Our efforts focus on creating a common understanding and purpose in the minds of our clients that goes beyond mere product functionality. For this, we have tested various workshop methods and have internalized those that establish a productive work environment and convey inspiring and impactful experiences to our clients. 

Our goal is not to overhelp our clients and max out the hours we spend on a project. Rather, we want to identify quickly at which stage of development our clients are at and add value exactly where it’s needed. This is why we have developed a modular product engineering process that let’s us jump in at any given point of product development and start contributing towards our client’s goal immediately.

The first step is Goal Setting that aims to help our clients develop a strong long-term vision and create a common understanding of why they inherently want to go forward with a project. With Future Modeling, developed by our friends at Knoweaux, we have a fundamental method in our toolset to support change-makers and leaders in fleshing out their visions, laying the groundwork for impactful strategic goal setting. After a two-day Future-Modeling workshop you will have specified a concrete action plan leading to the development of future-proof strategies that fit right into your team’s ongoing innovation process.

Having set clear goals for a project, the next step is to understand the environment and stakeholders and how this system needs to be approached to follow through with a successful project. During the Systemic Understanding step, we aim to help our clients map out the stakeholders affected by goals set prior and examine the interdependencies of all stakeholders affected by the project. This is done with our in-house developed tool Actor Landscaping, developed by Thomas Schindler. 

After an understanding of the goals and the surrounding system of a project, the final step of Prototype Building can kicked off. For this, we have acquired the method of Design Sprints that help us develop what our product should exactly look like. A typical Google Design Sprint is a five-day program that compresses months of ideation into a single workweek. As a result, teams short-cutt weeks of endless debate-cycles and have a tested prototype on their hands going forward. Inspired by these basic principles, we have refined the concept to offer our clients flexible Design Sprints timewise and with a unique delodi touch to the methodology.

With Fastlane, we have added a final service to our methodology that supports our clients in preparing a compelling marketing storyline and gaining insights about their target groups. These insights are acquired through rapid user research methods that draws direct insights from a pool of customers in only 48 hours.

After following through with all three steps, our clients have a well rounded and tested product prototype on their hands, with which the technical realization of the software can be launched. For this, they have the option to get to know our developers, who are eager to bring the project to life.

Call us today and tell us about your idea! We are happy to schedule an initial meeting to figure out where you stand and how we can contribute.
