Understanding the context, core problem, and ideal outcome utilizing human-centered approaches such as observation & interviews.

Establishing success metrics
2. Design solution blueprint
Utilizing our collective competencies and experiences, we map out the opportunity & blueprint the ideas and experiments needed to guide the strategic direction. Some questions to answer:
How can we use technology to help us reach our strategic goals?
