We combine strategic innovation consulting with visual storytelling to; communicate the strategies we co-create, make data and research insights comprehensible, and visualize ideas and concepts to create buy-in and alignment.  
Insights & Strategy

We ensure the successful implementation of new services, products and business models by discovering underlying human-centered needs and drivers. By shifting your mindset to a truly empathetic approach, we help you translate research and insights into tangible, viable concepts.

Our process
At shift we know that all successful innovation is rooted in a deep, rigorous understanding of human - centered desirability. We believe empathy is the cornerstone of sustainable as well as impactful product, service and process innovation. We ask the difficult questions and design solutions that respond to real needs. Most importantly, we help you tell powerful stories that turn your good ideas into successful innovations.

We build empathy through a deep understanding of needs, technologies, ecosystems and touchpoints, translating data into insights and visualize the why.
