Best practice, pre-packaged 

Each SmartSolution comes with all the elements needed to facilitate a powerful programme of work. They are "out of the box" best practice digital solution. 

Programme delivery:

  • Pre-configured and customisable environments.
  • Guided process document to run the SmartSolution.
  • Assignments, tools and templates to support each stage of the process.
  • Facilitator accreditation and training.
  • Supporting learning modules to provide a knowledge rich environment.
  • Collaborative online tools to support the process (DecisionApps).
  • A single place for all resource sharing and collaboration. 
  • Virtual teams that can work synchronously (live together) and asynchronously across time zones.
  • Parallel working cohorts to deliver different programme elements. 
 

Powered by DecisionApps

DecisionApps play a fundamental role in the delivery of SmartLab programmes. They are a series of digital "building blocks" that connect together in different combinations to enable powerful and accelerated working practices to take place. They are the DNA of SmartLab's Strategy, Collaboration, Design and Learning solutions.

Future State Modelling

Align, define and build the new strategic direction with input from the global team.

The Future State Modelling SmartLab Solution brings teams together to ideate and design new solutions for their programme. This takes a Design Thinking approach to generate new ideas, which are re ned, iterated and mapped within the context of the existing state ready for implementation.

Output
Documentation of the key ideas and challenges for the Future State in addition to implementation documentation.

1.

Brainstorming
Teams generate ideas together and share their perspectives on key requirements.

2.

Future State Visioning
They map the key aspects of the future state into visual representations.

3.

Rapid Prototyping
Ideas are developed and turned into working prototypes.

4.

Iteration Cycles
Ideas are then iterated and refined with the group.
