Design

Our business purpose is to deliver smart, effective transformative change. Our design practice is uniquely positioned to connect strategy and delivery. Pragmatic design, grounded in real world constraint to balance desire, ambition and do-ability.

The purpose of Exco Partners, as an organisation, is to assist our customers in delivering smart, effective digital and transformative change. Our award winning design practice is uniquely positioned to connect transformative change from strategy to delivery execution.

Our design practice takes a human-centred design approach for problem-solving and an application of design-thinking to create human-oriented, innovative and transformative solutions. Our methods drive a human-centric design, build buy-in with stakeholders and force a pragmatic levelling of detail to keep people out of the weeds! It considers the holistic problem space, simplifying communication and encouraging evidence over opinion based design to avoid status-quo thinking.

Our methods combine the best of disciplined business analysis, process mapping and process re-engineering practices with modern design methods exploring customer experience, service designer and user experience design.

We see the enormous value that design thinking and a human-centred design approach can establish and define solutions. We create new and creative pathways to innovation and establish a connection with stakeholders that builds engagement, trust, and credibility.

Transformation happens here!

Our award-winning design team is passionate about human-centred design and solving complex problems in innovative ways. Our methods are holistic in scope, challenge status-quo thinking and build buy-in with stakeholders. We have designed these methods to foster truly transformative solutions and take the most significant advantage of the industry-leading capability of our technology partners.

We also see that a robust, disciplined, and thorough definition of scope and requirements is critically in large transformative change programs and an agile software delivery context. We know process design is still the backbone of delivering business outcomes, be it targeting scale and volume or delivering on a promise of quality and consistency. Process design, process simplification and process automation are crucial to business operations. When designed with a human-centred lens, the opportunity to unlock competitive advantage is within grasp for all organisations. 

It is a commonplace for designers and business analyst roles to be separated by strict lines of demarcation in a business and project delivery context. We believe there is enormous value in breaking down these barriers, working across the disciplines, learning from each other, and building on these cross-functional skills to solve business challenges. Breaking down barriers is what we have done with our experience + design practice.

Customer Experience is our priority too

The benefits for businesses of customer experience are clear. CX drives longer customer relationships, more significant revenue and greater business performance overall.

Businesses, however, are still grappling with how to deliver holistic and meaningful customer experiences through digital channels and how to implement a digital-first strategy without compromising human interactions. Good CX is no longer good enough.
