Research & Analysis

DOT1 Global Institute helps clients transform the way they do business and create significant performance improvement, through our rigorous & globally-focused research; and objective insights & analysis.

Product Development

Our Global Institute is unique, in being able to go beyond analysis & research, beyond presentation slides- and actually develop new products, product extensions, product improvements.

In line with DOT1's engagement philosophy- the Global Institute Delivers what it Advises and Optimizes what it Delivers.

We have a Systematic approach to Product Development beginning with a Fuzzy Framework:

  • Identification of design criteria -- involves brainstorming possible new products. Once an idea has been identified as a prospective product, a more formal product development strategy is applied.

  • Idea analysis -- involves a closer evaluation of the product concept. Market research and concept studies are undertaken to determine if the idea is feasible or within a relevant business context to the company or to the consumer.

  • Concept genesis -- involves turning an identified product opportunity into a tangible concept.

  • Prototyping -- involves creating a rapid prototype for a product concept that has been determined to have business relevance and value. Prototyping in this front-end context means a "quick-and-dirty" model is created, rather than the refined product model that will be tested and marketed later on.

  • Product development -- involves ensuring the concept has passed muster and has been determined to make business sense and have business value.

Design Thinking is central to our Product Development Approach:

  • Empathize -- Learn more about the problem from multiple perspectives.

  • Define -- Identify the scope and true nature of the problem.

  • Ideate -- Brainstorm solutions to the problem.

  • Prototype -- Weed out unworkable or impractical solutions.
  • Test -- Solicit feedback.
