Our Methodologies

Design Sprints

Before we write a single line of code, we get a multidisciplinary team into a room and take them on an explorative journey. Key stakeholders from our clients work with our session moderator, user experience designer, and a software engineer on creating a roadmap for the project. Ncite design sprints get everyone on the same page, clearly define priorities and strategic goals, and get new projects off the ground in the most efficient manner.

Our design sprints use tools from successful lean prototyping methods, Google's five day process for answering critical business questions, and other innovative design techniques.

Agile Development

We are apostles of the agile software development movement. We use project management frameworks such as Scrum and have refined our iterative and incremental software development approach that grew out of real-life project experiences.

Our agile development method allows us to always have our clients and end users in mind. Constant and early testing with focus groups, analyzing insights and being able to react to new developments fast and correct course.

Game Learning
and Engagement

We have discovered that play is one of the keys to creating lasting impact and change. We draw on our expertise as game creators and apply gaming best practices in novel contexts and situations. This has led to extraordinary results on behalf of our users and clients.

We have developed our proprietary framework that consists of elements derived from game theory, deep practice (continuous training over longer periods of time), neuroscience and behavioral psychology.

Data and Analytics

Across all of our products we use accompanying web dashboards for user management, for accurately monitoring and reporting on individual usage and performance data, as well as for measuring increments in skills and competencies.

Our management and data & analytics dashboards are easy to use tools for designing, monitoring and evaluating digital product experiences. Get factual insights on your users and find out who is really on the other side of the screen.
