Chances are you can name a few challenges that your business is facing right now! You’ll even have some ideas about how to tackle those challenges. The tricky part is having the time to explore your ideas, pick the most innovative, and test them without breaking the bank.

In critical times like these, innovation is even more important. 2 out of 3 organisations say innovation is crucial to survival, but less than 1 out of 3 say they are innovating successfully to drive growth and increase revenue.

Working remotely doesn’t mean your team has to stop generating new ideas. It’s what you do with them that counts. At Whitespace we’ve developed a way to work remotely using our tried and tested NowLab model to make sure you don’t get left behind.

How does a NowLab work?

 

You bring us a challenge facing your business, we ask you lots of questions, and together we frame the problem. Then we pull together a crack team of creatives, developers, and UXers to work with you and your team to generate lots of ideas that tackle the problem.

Then collectively, we pick six ideas. We take these, cut out the fluff, trim the fat, and refine the flavour, so to speak. We present these back to you as extra refined concepts.

Next, you select the best three and we rapidly prototype them. We test the prototypes with real users from your target demographic to see what they think, and create a detailed report of our findings.

We talk you through the report and tell you whether the ideas were ‘Yeah!’, ‘Meh.’, or ‘Bleh! (It’s as important to understand why the flops flipped, as much as why the hits hit.) We walk you through all our insights and give you final recommendations on which ideas to ditch, and which to improve and build. (As an added bonus, our reports include tons of great collateral – demos, prototypes, feedback – you can share with your wider teams.)

And that’s it. NowLab is a straightforward, ultra-speedy process to frame problems and test solutions. And with a cloud-based toolset we can run NowLab anytime, anywhere, including user testing, even under the tightest lockdown.  

We love working on NowLab projects, and we are getting some great results (at least our clients think so).

 

It’s great to work with a team who follow through on their promises and deliver things on time. It really makes managing the excited folk back here (including me) much easier.

 

We’ve been privileged to work with a wide range of clients, from multi-nationals in the beauty industry to British financial services companies and Edinburgh based social enterprises. We hope we will get to work with you next.
