Consultation

Leverage our do­main ex­perts to help solve your wicked prob­lem.

There are chal­lenges in the soft­ware in­dus­try that are so com­plex they can­not be solved by build­ing a so­lu­tion. This is where a con­sul­ta­tion is nec­es­sary.

Find the right path for­ward.

Every prob­lem is unique. The key is to have a fluid enough process to adapt to each prob­lem while still ap­ply­ing learn­ings from the past. Every prob­lem needs to be ob­served and un­der­stood be­fore it can be solved. Once un­der­stood, the en­tire team can align on the de­liv­er­ables needed to solve the prob­lem.

Leverage do­main ex­perts and pro­fes­sional prob­lem solvers.

Too of­ten a prob­lem is only ap­proached from ei­ther a de­sign or a tech­ni­cal per­spec­tive. By including ex­perts in each do­main, your tai­lored rec­om­men­da­tions will cover all facets of de­sign as well as the tech­ni­cal im­ple­men­ta­tion.

Consultation Process

Apply to Secure Your Spot

We take on a lim­ited num­ber of Consultation en­gage­ments every month. Projects are sched­uled on a first in, best dressed ba­sis. It’s highly rec­om­mended to ap­ply as soon as pos­si­ble, in or­der to se­cure your spot.

FAQs

Every prob­lem is dif­fer­ent. Without first know­ing and un­der­stand­ing the prob­lem, it is im­pos­si­ble to pre­scribe a process for solv­ing it. Before the en­gage­ment be­gins, we will in­ves­ti­gate and pro­vide a rec­om­men­da­tion on the length and in­vest­ment re­quired for the con­sul­ta­tion.

Most con­sul­ta­tions sit around the four-week mark. They can be longer or shorter de­pend­ing on the agreed upon de­liv­er­ables.

Anything with a soft­ware fo­cus. Past ex­am­ples in­clude, ma­chine learn­ing fea­si­bil­ity analy­sis, de­sign im­prove­ments for ex­ist­ing sys­tems, legacy mod­erni­sa­tion pro­ject and sys­tem re-de­signs.

Talk to us and find out. We never want to set our­selves up to fail, so if we don’t think we can help you, we’ll be hon­est with you. Register for a free strat­egy ses­sion to get the con­ver­sa­tion started (link to /free-strategy-session).

This is dri­ven by need. Some com­mon ex­am­ples in­clude; tech­ni­cal re­search and doc­u­men­ta­tion, ap­pli­ca­tion ar­chi­tec­ture de­sign, sys­tem pro­to­types, data­base mod­els and de­sign style guides.

Past Consultations

Inspect Real Estate

InspectRealEstate reached out to WorkingMouse to as­sist them with im­prov­ing the look and feel of their flag­ship prod­uct, ROL Rentals, which had­n’t seen any changes in its de­sign since its in­cep­tion. The fo­cus of the con­sul­ta­tion was agreed upon, with the pri­mary arte­fact be­ing a de­sign sys­tem that could be used when up­dat­ing their prod­uct suite or de­vel­op­ing a new so­lu­tion as well as re-de­sign­ing the core pages of the plat­form. At the con­clu­sion of the four week con­sult, the team de­liv­ered a de­sign sys­tem, HiFi pro­to­types and data­base schema model that would en­able InspectRealEstate to be­gin the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the up­dated user ex­pe­ri­ence of ROL Rentals.

Ksatria

Ksatria knew they needed to im­prove the de­sign of their ap­pli­ca­tion, the Ksatria Medical System (KMS). They en­gaged WorkingMouse to con­sult on how they could best im­ple­ment im­prove­ments us­ing de­sign cen­tred prin­ci­ples. The fol­low­ing prob­lem state­ment was agreed upon;

How can we re­duce the com­plex­ity and im­prove the con­sis­tency of the core reg­is­tra­tion process and as­so­ci­ated mod­els so that users re­quire min­i­mal train­ing to be able to eas­ily use it?

The de­liv­er­ables that formed part of the con­sul­ta­tion were three-fold. Firstly, the new pro­to­type for the ap­pli­ca­tion val­i­dated through user test­ing. Secondly, the re­vised ap­pli­ca­tion ar­chi­tec­ture. This ad­dressed how the back­end of the ap­pli­ca­tion needed to func­tion to sup­port the front end. Thirdly, a re­quire­ments back­log that doc­u­mented the fu­ture work re­quired.
