We help organisations transform
– via design
We are all about promoting transformative change for the benefit of organisations, people and the planet
We build transformative change at the highest level of our client’s organisations by working holistically across the whole gamut of available skills and insights.
The only way to do this is to fine-tune our efforts to the very specific and complex realities our clients are facing.
None of our work is ever “off the shelf” because we are focused on making our response as specific as possible to the client’s needs.
We pride ourselves on creating a sense of empowerment and ownership long after the project is finished.
For us, it is as important to work with mindset and culture as well as behaviour and systems. And the proof of this approach is in the success of the businesses we help build.
This is what we mean when we say we promote transformative change.
"ViaDesign's course Change by Design Circle was for me in many ways mindblowing in terms of framing, nuance and manifesting changes privately, in organisations and in society.
In fact, it went so far for me that I now will have a tattoo on my wrist - as a manifestation.
With this shift of focus, we find ourselves working with the management’s mindset and behaviour just as much as we do with the forming of the internal culture and workflows.
We see our clients as partners and the navigating of complex realities as our common goal. Our sole aim is to evolve and shape a resilient human- and life-centred approach to innovation and transformation of organisations.
And because of this, over the years, we have been lucky enough to work with far-sighted organisations and all their stakeholders - people who are prepared to develop inventive, strategic answers and who dare to do so from a place of wholehearted respect our planet and to benefit the many.
This is what we mean when we say transformative.
Since ViaDesign started in 2001 we have worked with a great number of organisations to help them to really understand their users and to take this knowledge into the development of meaningful products and services.
As design thinking has evolved from merely being an external add-on to becoming a business-critical competence, the range and depth of our services have evolved with it.
Increasingly ViaDesign finds itself embedded at the heart of our client’s organisations, focusing on enhancing transformation capability.
