    Module participants testimonials

    Philipp Zhuchkov
    Philipp ZhuchkovDirector of the group of companies “Altair”
    “I want to express my gratitude to the creators and organizers of this training program for the modern strategic approach to modelling business processes, with which the cycle from abstract idea to the creation of a specific roadmap for development, promotion and market roll-out of the products is reduced to a few hours. The simplicity and usefulness of this methodology allow to apply it to such innovative and breakthrough projects, as our project E-Veche, and for already working in real context manufacturers. I emphasize that our team immediately after the module applied this model to our existing construction enterprise, creating hazardous production facilities, which opened up new development prospects and growth points for us and pointed out the mistakes and weaknesses”.

    “It was useful for me that for all four days I was immersed with the same team in the same context, I was able to completely disengage from the situation in which I am in Russia. After this workshop, I have formed a new look, formed new requirements for some processes and the environment. I want some things to irritate me, and what causes irritation should be corrected. For Shvabe there need to be such activities, where they gather groups and teams with opposite professions and responsibilities. It is amazing that in our team today was a specialist in the field of procurement. It would be nice if a lawyer or an accountant participated in our team, for example, because we look at the same matters differently, and when this symbiosis develops, it shows the whole picture. This workshop expanded my mind, made it more open, and as they say in photography, the view became wide-angle”.

    Frequently asked questions

    What to do if we do not know which product to create?2021-09-17T13:37:06+00:00

    Each team goes through a stage at which it is necessary to decide what to create. There are different approaches, and we want to offer you a user-centered approach. This means that instead of first creating a product and then pushing it to the market, we immediately work on a solution together with the user. Together we will figure out what kind of product customers need and test the prototype of the idea with real users.

    Should we use innovative methodologies in a conservative industry?2021-09-17T13:37:31+00:00

    There is room for innovation in every industry without exception. In progressive industries, it may be easier to apply design thinking or agile development, but in a conservative industry, implementing such methodologies will be much more beneficial. If you have conservative competitors, small performance improvements can easily make you stand out. In addition, a fresh look at daily operations can inspire you to enter a new market or a new client.

    Why can’t we create a product ourselves?2021-09-17T13:37:56+00:00

    Of course you can, and you should! But sometimes companies have difficulty coming up with a new product for the market. This is where the design thinking methodology comes in, helping to create the product that the client really wants. Together we will go through the stages of design thinking and develop a product concept that will ensure your success in the market. You can read more about design thinking here.
