Integrating Human-Centered Design to unlock a step-change in value creation
In today’s digital environment, every company wants to be the disruptor, and Human-Centered Design (HCD) is the way to get there. Unlike traditional strategy, which is often linear, slow, and product-driven, HCD enables companies to build agile businesses, products, and experiences that meet users’ ever-evolving needs. This infographic illustrates the three key phases of HCD: understand, visualize, realize.

Strategy& helps companies turn ideas into transformational digital businesses. At the heart of our unique approach is the application of Human-Centered Design by multi-disciplinary teams that integrate across strategy, design, technology and analytics. As applied by Strategy&, Human-Centered Design lets businesses rapidly build digital products and services that meet a user’s ever-evolving needs. As well as applying insights to pursue disruptive strategies and business models, this user-centric push can shape a company’s innovation and marketing capability agenda.
Traditional strategy is often linear, slow and product-driven, rather than user-focused and agile, which results in companies playing defense against disruption vs. being the disruptor themselves.
