Development processes

Do our entire development process

Every company has experienced it: new products and services that have no market relevance at all. Or new products that are not innovative at all. At RDM Next we have different approach routes. These help you come up with ideas and make the right choices.

Approach routes

You develop good products and services, among other things, by carefully looking at the needs of your user. You can find these needs by talking to your user or by studying his or her behavior.

What is possible on top of that is creating together with your customer. This way you will find out a lot of details that you could never have come up with behind closed doors. A nice bonus: you immediately have a lot of ambassadors for your latest development.

In the RDM Next development sessions you roll up your sleeves together with your customer, colleagues or other end user. The starting point of each session can be different, starting with technique, a challenge, the solution or the elaboration.

From technology: Digital session

Technical developments are always one of the major driving forces behind new products and services. In the Innovation Dock we currently see the greatest opportunities in the themes related to digitalization and automation. Take for example Machine Learning, IoT, Big Data, Blockchain, Robotics and Cyber Security. In our workshops we explain in a practical and accessible way how these developments work and what they can do for you. We offer a separate workshop for each theme.

Do you want to be updated in one day? Book the digital workshop, experience the latest developments first hand and walk away with refreshing ideas.

From the need: Design Thinking

You can also come up with new ideas very well by discovering your customer's frustrations and ambitions. You do this in the Design Thinking session at RDM Next. Using different design methods you discover the latent needs of your user. With the right opportunity or problem formulation, you can come up with new ideas in an instant. In the final step of the RDM Next Design Thinking session you arrive at one best idea using various selection methods. Are you ready for innovation?

Towards design thinking

From implementation: Validation session

If you have a new product or service in mind, you can do the RDM Next validation session. In this session you will use the lean start-up method to find out whether your idea is really a good idea. You do this by structurally validating or invalidating all assumptions behind your idea. If you find out that your idea is not good after all, we will make sure it is good. By making small changes to the target group or solution, we ensure that there is a market for every idea. And all just outside your comfort zone.

From the elaboration: Co-creation

When you have come up with a new idea, there are still a lot of choices in details that need to be made. It is important to listen carefully to your user. Take them to RDM Next and develop together with them. Then you immediately walk out with a prototype. Results within a day!

Towards co-creation

Why we do it this way

As you can see, there are several roads that lead to Rome. They all have a different starting point, but intersect regularly. The result is always the same: innovation that meets the needs of your user. Is your company not yet prepared for the future? Book your workshop or creative session now!
