EcoSystem Exploration

Nothing exists in a vacuum, so solutions shouldn’t be developed in one.

EcoSystem Exploration is our unique three-phase discovery process that informs everything we do. It enables us to quickly learn about a work system at an in-depth level and identify the highest value solutions for an organization.

Why EcoSystem Exploration

The symptom is not the problem—it’s a result of the problem. You still have to pinpoint what the problem is so that you can solve it. Our unique EcoSystem Exploration process helps your organization do just that. We help your organization remove bias and see the issue from multiple perspectives, in order to identify the real problems (yes, we often find more than just one). We then help you prioritize and select the best solutions for your organization.

We also include users that other approaches tend to leave out. As a result, we see more people in our client’s organization feel heard and become invested in the solutions. Your team helps us understand your workflows and systems so we can understand the impact of both issues and solutions.

Don’t worry—we respect your team’s time and the fact that they have jobs to do, so we schedule interviews and activities around your team’s mission-critical activities. The bottom-up approach we take ensures we’re creating solutions for end-users throughout your organization.

What Our Clients Are Saying

They have been essential in increasing our efficiencies, helping empower me and others to question more and improve processes, and introduced and trained us in tools to improve our operations.

JD Bower


They’ve been highly responsive and flexible as our requirements and even vision for various projects have changed. The rapid turnaround for updated versions of those projects have allowed us to solidify the concept and generate final products that are more useful and effective than we’d initially envisioned.

Tool Design

Sometimes off-the-shelf isn’t good enough. If your organization requires a custom solution, our team of designers and architects will build it.

Targeted Tool

Sometimes the best digital solution for your operations is a new twist on an existing solution (can you say shorter timeline and lower expenses?).
