UX goes beyond mockups

While working with our clients we use a lot of Service Design techniques that help us to identify the pain that the end-users are experiencing and enable us to offer solutions to their problems. We are evangelists of Lean Startup approach (as described by Eric Ries), which forces the teams to get out of the office and investigate the business need, discuss it with the client and promote the interviews with end-users. Our Design process starts with interactive workshops that take from two to five days (as designed by Jake Knapp in Google Sprint guidelines) during which often the Proof of Concept is created. When the solution is validated it is further analyzed in an iterative fashion to offer new features that are regularly released to the real audience so that to build the MVP. This process helps us to stay aligned with the end-users needs and deliver the highest value.
