Even within a single organization, different teams and departments can all have slightly different visions of what a product “should” be. We’re good at aligning and uniting those teams so they can make decisions together and move the project forward.

Identify what people want and how to get it to them

Too often, organizations know what they want their product to do, but no one is quite sure what the user wants the product to do. We can help identify market segments and their needs, evaluate how users respond to product features, and adapt accordingly. We can also determine the best way to get the word out and generate excitement about the product

StrategicPlanning-MarketStrategy

We help align your team and establish direction.

As a 3rd party, we help bridge the gaps between user needs, internal team needs, and business needs. As we bring these needs into alignment, we end up with a clearer picture of what the product needs to accomplish. As teams communicate what they want to us, those ideas get clearer and eventually morph into an executable strategy.

StrategicPlanning-TeamAlign

Ask the right questions.

Without a clear product vision, no one can be sure who the product is for, how it will be used, and what exactly it needs to do. Our team knows which questions to ask to help bring the product vision into focus. Only with this focus can we design clean, clear, comfortable interfaces that will delight users and accomplish end goals.

StrategicPlanning-ProductVision

We scale to fit your project's needs.

Different teams can describe and execute the same process in different ways. Our flexibility allows us to recognize and understand those different processes, identify any major gaps, and bring everyone to a shared understanding of the process and workflow. We’ll point out the tradeoffs and help you decide what’s best moving forward.

Our strategic planning expertise has served many great companies over the years, including:

  • Global Financial Services Company
  • Zerorez

Global Financial Services Company

Drawbackwards guided a global financial services company through a design thinking process to improve how merchants add branches to their existing accounts. Over six months, we collaborated with their team to clarify and define the existing process, researched the current merchant experience, analyzed the strengths and weaknesses, and designed a Future State solution that would elevate the experience for all internal and external stakeholders.

Zerorez

The challenge: to create, then validate, a subscription-model offering for repeat customers. After extensive market analysis and customer focus groups, a surprising conclusion: customers didn’t want a subscription model for their carpet-cleanings. Armed with this discovery, we helped Zerorez pivot, honing their business strategy through other market differentiators.
