Our Approach

Method

Our capabilities across research, strategy, design and development come together in a pod-driven, iterative, solution methodology centered around 3 key phases: Spark, Ignite, Elevate. We conduct all our work in 2-week sprints – across every discipline and all activities.

Our sprints are hypothesis driven and evidence based, yielding rapid outcomes, responding quickly to change as it occurs, so that the final product and solution reflect optimal results. Our product and solution development process challenges the typical project lifecycle and yields living products that provide real value for the long-run, far beyond the launch date. We obsess about usage and adoption long before the product is launched. We create product measurement and optimization strategies to continually ensure business value.

Mindset

Beyond Curious Methods

We accelerate momentum by adopting a 10x mindset. Whether it’s through insights or strategy, design or development, our techniques are designed to unlock big ideas, bold moves and big returns. We look for opportunities that catapult you forward faster and more effectively. We drive focus on the right things at the right time, helping you make innovation an everyday occurrence instead of an occasional event.

Our hiring and training model, supported by BeyondCurious Academy, develops the behaviors and mentality required to unlock potential in people and organizations and act as a catalyst for digital change, even in the face of challenge and uncertainty. Innovating in large organizations can be difficult. Our approach has proven successful because we incorporate method and mindset.

Metrics

We ensure success by aligning behaviors with goals. Great outcomes are guaranteed when our clients are happy and our team is thriving. We track 2 metrics that have been proven to show delight: NPS (Net Promoter Score) for our clients, and PIP (Pride In Product) for our team members.

If our NPS and PIP scores don’t meet our high standards, our compensation is directly affected. So we have as much at stake as you do in delivering success together. But creating massive impact for organizations goes beyond simply tracking metrics and numbers. It requires constant measuring, monitoring, and optimizing—just like any great product. Our sprint-based methodology provides a regular cadence for evaluating the NPS and PIP performance, which allows us to constantly pivot and change to ensure a great partnership with our clients and a great product solution.
