Understanding your challenges to deliver smart solutions
At Elemental Concept, we not only strategise on solutions but through tailored consultancy, we enable your organisation to be the best it can be.
Figuring out your best path forward
Business building experience
Our team have rich experience building and enabling businesses including advising, investing in and scaling up new ventures. We draw on this experience to help our clients transform their vision into a solid business plan with a clear business strategy.
Range of skills
We have a wide range of skillsets available to you, ranging from infrastructure design, application architecture, creative and UX services, front end and back end development through to deployment. This enables us to respond to client needs and draw in the right people at different points of the business lifecycle to keep escalating your offerings appropriately as you scale.
Ensuring your tech can deliver your goals
Our enterprise architects & tech leaders have proven experience building complex ecosystems and possess the ability to solve high-level strategic issues.
As part of our tech strategy, we will always advise you to undertake a tech due diligence process. Having identified the requirements for your future state business, our experts come in to analyse your current system and processes, calling out any bottlenecks and vulnerabilities in your current technology stack and infrastructure.
Driving the technology evolution
We will then work with you to design a firm strategy that replaces the tech stack and infrastructure in a prioritised modular fashion to ensure the business can continue to operate without impact.
Putting your tech strategy on the right path
According to a 2017 survey by Planview, 49% of the companies surveyed had seen a project fail in the previous 12 months.
Organisations continually face the need to transform their processes and systems to meet new evolving requirements. This transformation demands specific expertise that is not always available from within the organisation. It’s also expensive to maintain these skills in-house.
Implementing transformation strategy
We can parachute in our experts to supplement your existing teams as needed, until your operations are up and running smoothly. Our team can support you in defining the strategic direction of the business architecture, identify the technology solutions that are needed to support that architecture and implementing them successfully.
Running a Discovery Workshop
Without offering value to users, any product idea is unlikely to make it off the starting blocks. Usability doesn’t breed utility. That’s why you need Discovery workshops.
The Discovery workshop is a step by step process to quickly understand whether a technology solution to a problem should be built and if so, for who and how. Its goal is to fully define the scope and goals that need to be achieved, but also to set expectations for all sides involved in the project.
We have refined our workshopping process over a decade and it has been instrumental to our clarity on a multitude of projects, from the build of simple apps to the creation of large, complex trading platforms.
Prep work is done in advance of a workshop, from competitor and market analysis, to the client homework we issue that gives us all the information we need to have a really impactful session.
Process and moderation
A facilitated Discovery Process uses specific use cases, calling on tools like the Business Model Canvas, empathy mapping, story-boarding, story-mapping, as well as exercises like gap analysis and north stars to define your solution.
Post session deliverables
Our Discovery sessions end with a comprehensive report, outlining the sessions findings, from summaries to personas, ending with our recommended steps forward for the client.
Protecting your business
Industry is slowly starting to recognise risk management as a vital operational function, especially organizations with extensive exposure to third-party suppliers. Thus, there is an increasing demand to measure and quantify risk in a meaningful way.
However, several recent studies show that there is a serious gap between recognising risk from information technology operations and taking active steps to avoid, transfer, accept and/or control risk. This is where Elemental Concept come in.
We’re ready to help you address all your GRC needs to ensure that your business is compliant and prepared for worst case scenarios.
Enabling you to optimise how you capture, analyse and use your data
Through our bespoke Data Discovery process, we do a deep dive into your business strategy and operational structure and evaluate how well your current data setup is helping to drive your goals.
The process begins with research into your business strategy and operational structure and enables us to understand the core drivers for your business so that we can ideate on how data can be used to optimise this strategy.
The end output is a consolidated findings report outlining the current state of your data, recommendations on how to optimise and secure to avoid potential exposure as well as insights into where the business might better leverage the data to provide insights and inform your transformation programmes as well as identifying opportunities for AI and machine learning to help drive business goals.
Let’s get stuck in. Get in touch with us today – we’ll put you together with one of our strategists to start discussing potential strategies for your project.
