Every new idea has the opportunity to deliver an exponential result. We work with lawyers, law firms and legal departments to move ideas through the launch lifecycle.
If you’re in need of a spark or wish to take your idea to the next level, we’re here to help. Through workshops and consulting services we will work with you or your organization to sprout more 10x opportunities to become exponential and boost your ability to deliver legal value to your clients.
Creating new products and services without properly validating the opportunity is a risky venture. Work with us to leverage experiments to build evidence that your wildest ideas are legitimate exponential opportunities. Through this process, we’ll continuously test, reshape and reframe your thinking.
Once you have validated your idea, there are a number of ways to create the first version of it. It’s important to recognize this distinction. Unlike physical products, services and digital products are ripe for constant improvement. Work with our team to develop the first version of your exponential product or service, or the next version of an exponential product or service you’ve already launched.
Launching new products and services is scary. Trust us, we’ve been through quite a few launches. Let us assist your team in setting up the proper pilot group with which to roll out your exponential product or service, and guide you through the process of gathering actionable feedback before wider adoption begins.
New products and services can be jarring for first time consumers. Having an adoption plan and executing can greatly enhance the comfortability of your clients with your new exponential product or service. We take a three-pronged approach to systematically grow adoption and engagement over time.
