About

Beyond is a design and technology ideas company.

We help ambitious companies create new value with design- and technology-based products and strategies. We power their momentum by transforming the way they think and work.

What We Do

digital product DESIGN & development

We design and build technology-based solutions that create new value and new markets.

  • We look comprehensively at our client’s business to identify opportunities for creating new value.
  • We co-lead design and technology teams made up of our people, clients and partners.
  • We guide product creation across the lifecycle and via continuous delivery.
  • We help build velocity by augmenting client teams.

TEAM & PROCESS DESIGN

We reshape organizational mindsets, cultures, and processes to fuel continuous growth.

  • We uncover organizational opportunities and build new approaches for design and technology teams.
  • We establish the tools and processes that enable new cultures to thrive.
  • We build cross-functional thinking and action.
  • We co-develop methods for measuring success.

How We’RE Different

Whether we’re designing a product or a process, we are guided by five principles. We adapt these principles to every situation, but we never compromise them.

  • about-plan

    1. Plan as you go.

    We believe there are business opportunities we can’t see until we start to build them, so we think about audacious goals as a series of small, focused experiments, which we tackle one at a time. Our strategy for each experiment is shaped by the prior results. This approach allows us to move fast, test, learn, and pivot, and pursue the best solution instead of the scoped solution.

  • about-validate

    2. Validate every step.

    We create goals and measure results for each small experimental phase, whether we’re building technology or teams, and we reconfigure as we go. This allows us to mitigate risk, identify opportunities, and constantly keep teams connected to and energized by the outcome of their work. It also allows us to ground all of our decisions in data from the beginning of the process to the end.

  • about-collaborate

    3. Continuously collaborate.

    We believe that in smart, open, and multi-perspectived teams, thinking aloud and testing ideas with each other is the fastest way to get to the best result. We insist on working in tightly connected teams, co-ideating, and partially co-locating with clients and partners either by embedding in their offices or having them embed in ours.

  • about-ecosystems

    4. Think in ecosystems.

    A product experience depends on more than the piece of technology with which the customer engages—it’s determined by the entire value chain of a business, the systems of people and process that run that value chain, and all the touchpoints between the business and the customer. We create integrated solutions that acknowledge this multi-faceted network, because the success of the product and its ecosystem are interdependent.

  • about-best

    5. Do what’s best, fastest.

    We believe there is a direct and positive correlation between small size, agility, and effectiveness. We’re masters at answering the question: “What’s the best, fastest?” and applying the exact amount of resources, energy and fidelity needed at each step.
