DISCOVERY

We help our clients match the right web solution to their organisational and user needs. Our discovery projects are research-rich and allow our expert teams to immerse themselves in our clients' organisations, their systems, digital operations and user requirements. We explore your current performance and establish future vision opportunities. Our expert teams help to roadmap a practical route for web transformation.

IMMERSE AND ALIGN

At project outset, we ensure that we are clear on the goals and desired outputs of discovery. Typical projects need more than just costs and project timelines and require specific options reports or business case creation before proceeding to next stage web investment. 

Communication and vision alignment is key to discovery success and this is mapped at the early stages too. Stakeholder engagement is a critical factor in web transformation and vision setting activities help onboard and align key parties.

RESEARCH AND EXPLORE 

Before recommending specific research activities, we take time to understand what you know already about your organisation, users and competitive landscape. Our subsequent gap analysis informs our research programme to gather a full set of solution requirements. This can take the form of surveys, user research programmes, stakeholder workshops, interviews and systems analysis sessions.

COLLATE AND PRIORITISE 

All requirements exploring your organisation, users and competitive landscape are captured in a log that is maintained throughout the process. We tend to use MoSCoW prioritisation (what items Must, Should, Could and Won’t be implemented as part of the roadmap recommendation) to organise the log and retain focus. We work closely with our client’s project team to ensure prioritisation supports the web transformation vision.

ASSESS AND TEST 

A platform assessment follows requirement collation and prioritisation. We typically assess against our client’s integration requirements (e.g. CRM, payment services, monitoring systems), platform features (e.g. content editing, security management, workflow) and website functionality (e.g. media streaming, HR, advertising support). Factors such as total cost of ownership and exposure to product demonstrations are critical to our overarching platform recommendations.

In cases where we incorporate prototyping into our discovery, we will user test our solution and refine our recommendation in line with findings.

SUMMARISE AND RECOMMEND

A successful discovery results in actionable implementation with demonstrable results. Our final discovery output is never a surprise to our clients, as we ensure that their project team and key stakeholders have been engaged throughout the process, and have confidence in the next stages of their web transformation. Outputs capture our findings, making the next steps clear (including costs, opportunities and risks) and ensuring wider organisational understanding and buy-in.
