why do 90% of innovations fail?


It's not the technical aspect of implementation - in fact, that's getting easier every day.

Innovations fail because business impacts are not properly vetted, or customer needs are misunderstood or poorly translated into experiential and operational requirements.*

Future-Proof parses all the business, operational, and customer decisions you'll need to make to step through your innovation journey with confidence.

new service experiences

Whether you're augmenting a standalone product with a service or designing a new service offering, we help you create seamless experiences for your customers across every touch point with your brand. 

  • Ethnographic research to uncover latent wants and unmet needs.
  • End-to-end customer journey mapping and service design to translate findings into requirements for the users, customers, and business.
  • Business process engineering to operationalize the new service.
 

new operational processes

Whether you're optimizing operational processes and governance methods or engineering backend processes to newly designed customer experiences, we give you the blueprints and spell out the playbook to follow:

  • Business process research to analyze failure points and identify optimization opportunities.
  • Process design (or re-engineering) and KPIs to meet optimization targets.
  • Institutionalization of ongoing governance and continuous improvement practices.

business model transformations

Transforming the way you do business from selling products to subscription-based service experiences? We define requirements for recurring revenue streams, ongoing customer relationships, and support service operations.  

  • Market and competitor research to uncover untapped differentiation opportunities.
  • Business model design and assumptions testing to ensure viability.
  • Process engineering to operationalize the new way of doing business.

why work with us?


We're obsessed with customer experience. So we'll be obsessing over every aspect of your experience with us. 

Here's what it's like to work with us:

 

commitment

Unlike large consulting agencies, you’ll know who you’re getting before you sign on the dotted line.

confidence

Great innovations don't have to come with great risk. We uncover your blind spots and help you mitigate both market and business model risks before you make large investments.

Value

We maximize value for your spend. Whether it's qualitative research or data analytics, we engage the right skill-set at the right time, saving you money without sacrificing quality. 

 

lasting impact

Designing a great customer experience is only half the solution. Your ability to sustain business outcomes will depend on adopting the right processes, policies, tools, metrics, and governance practices. We cover all that.

personalization

We don't force-fit your business problem into one wheel house. We take best practices from Service Design, Design Thinking, Lean Startup, Outcome Driven Innovation and Six Sigma (among others) to customize right methods for the right outcomes.

support

Innovation projects spell change and that can ruffle feathers. Our approach fosters empathy and inclusiveness so each stakeholder is aligned and feels rewarded.
