We're a diverse group of like-minded individuals. We care deeply about our roles as trusted advisors to clients, with the aim of transforming how some of the world's largest organizations work, learn, and do business. We believe that advancing the capabilities of design is central to this undertaking.
Our work spans industries and government, environments, geographies, and ways of working, yet some concepts hold true across them all:
Across all the work we do, shared behaviors amplify our impact as creative contributors.
The cross-disciplinary collaboration that powers our project teams is fueled by the expertise of our studios and realized by our client services and delivery capabilities. As a compliment to the uniqueness of every LDS engagement, our studios convene like-minded experts to advance our practices, promote new ideas, and drive innovation.
It's this collegiality and intellectual engagement that draws new talent to LDS.
We establish and represent the business contexts and solution requirements of our clients' online experience. Our approach begins with assessing a client's business strategy, goals and priorities, and progresses to a deep understanding of its business and operational design. This subsequently informs program and change management requirements for the online solution and may influence the business model itself.
We work hand-in-hand with LDS designers, content strategists, and architects to realize the full solution design. We also collaborate with our clients to determine the tradeoffs and commitments needed to launch and evolve a high-impact experience and to ensure the solution realizes expected business value.
The Experience Strategy & Design group imagines and executes digital experiences that enable new ways of working, learning, and doing business. Our teams include content strategists, user experience designers, and visual designers. We realize solutions through a collaborative process of exploration, iteration, and evolution, always focused on the near- and long-term innovations that fuel digital transformation and create new capabilities for people. Working with our colleagues in Business Strategy and Architecture, we deliver experiences that enable new behaviors through high visual, visceral, and consumable interfaces.
We're skilled technologists and experienced technical leaders who collaborate with our client IT teams to deliver innovative solutions. Our principal focus is to carefully design and thoroughly test digital solutions that help our clients achieve their business goals.
We are stewards of our clients' business goals. We tie it all together by helping evolve the solution, driving teamwork with resiliency through the critical path, evaluating tradeoffs, intercepting distractions, managing ambiguity, and balancing diverse project needs linked to resources, time, and budget.
