The journey to creating an MVP
Our strategists draw on our 21 years of software development experience working with some of Australia’s fastest growing startups, scaleups and corporates.
This experience, and our step by step process enables us to provide valuable ideas, inspiration and insights not available to organisations who otherwise attempt digital strategy internally.
We work closely with you through workshops, followed by research to provide you with valuable insights and determine and document a solution that achieves your overall unique strategy goals.
Identifying your key objectives and challenges to solve for.
(E.g. Increasing conversion, generating entirely new revenue streams, improving user experience, enabling scalability, creating operational efficiencies, digitally transforming your business etc)
Understanding your current assets, capabilities, risks and opportunities.
Based on your situation, goals and competitors, and our industry and technology insights – we provide ideas, solutions and their implications for your consideration. We work closely with you to prioritise items with the greatest impact and lowest cost.
Based on your goals and agreed solution, outputs may include:
– Solution Roadmap
– Technical Strategy
– UX Design
– User Stories
– Guidance on budget, timeframe and best practice for implementation
Typical cost ranges from $1,000 to $25,000 depending on your need.
Value reported by our clients is typically a significant multiple of the cost, as the insights generated can save hundreds of thousands of dollars of development or wasted effort, and also massively increase the likelihood of project success.
Typical time frames are between two and four weeks, depending on your need.

Nothing, however we’ll consider any documentation you have during the strategy process. Engaging our specialists early enables more productive discussions and valuable outcomes. Additionally, we have a structured set of questions we ask to get to the heart of your goals and objectives.
Thinking: Having external, independent expert advice often injects ideas and generate thinking that otherwise won’t happen when you attempt to self-serve.
Experience: We’re fortunate to have the benefit of 21 years working across hundreds of leading companies. We talk to businesses with new challenges, everyday.
Time: We have a process and structure refined over hundreds of engagements, therefore can help you get the optimal result faster and with less effort, allowing you to remain focused on your priorities.
Yes. If you have a brief already, our strategy service is fast and inexpensive. You come away with a validated strategy you can be confident in that will deliver the outcomes you need on time and on budget – typically with several new insights that will also save you time/money and increase the likelihood the project succeeds.
Ultimately you’re in control and the strategy will be based on your input. We work closely with you to ensure that not only are you comfortable with the outcome, but also excited by it. Our role also enables you to make the most informed decisions possible.
Information gathered through qualitative and quantitative reviews will allow you to make decisions based on data, as opposed to assumptions. We take risk mitigation seriously and recommend various methods such as assumption validation through designing hypotheses, as well as running experiments early on to test your market.
