It all starts with business strategy. Winning in digital begins with a deep understanding of industry dynamics, recognizing how those trends are disrupting and altering the competitive landscape, and surfacing the next big idea. From the right strategic ideation comes real commercial opportunity.
It's not enough to have the idea. Value creation requires bringing that idea to life—creating a vision of a compelling user experience, designing it, prototyping it, and getting ready to develop it.
It's not all glamorous—it takes hard work to realize value. It means architecting the solution and ensuring it gets built and launched on budget—all the while building the organization's capability to deliver it on an ongoing basis.
Strategy&'s Digital Services's team of strategists, designers, and architects has the vision and technical expertise to design three years out but build for today. Simple means we design for use, not for technology. This approach significantly changes the game by accelerating value and driving disruption downstream.
Handing off from one partner to the next is fraught with risk, increases costs, and dilutes accountability to the client. We identify disruptive opportunities, design and visualize how to capture that opportunity, and then partner to build, scale, and transfer that solution. The Strategy&'s Digital Services model avoids the pitfalls of multiple handoffs, producing better outcomes with less risk.
Our integrated model makes us unique—our people make us great. It's not enough to be smart—our people all have real-world industry experience creating or operating digital businesses. Ours is a talented multidisciplinary team, skilled in all key capabilities from strategy to UX and product design to IT solution architecture.
We believe in being in the trenches with our clients from beginning to end, defining and realizing the digital business opportunity together. Because our people have hands-on digital industry experience, we can go the full distance with our clients, not only envisioning the solution with them but also helping them launch, transfer, and operate it.
Strategy&'s Digital Services bring together a multi-disciplinary team across strategy, design and technology to create high impact solutions for our clients that are 100% digital. Our areas of expertise are:
Digital business strategy, product innovation, user experience, user interface design, ecommerce and digital monetization, app and web development, and project management.
