Design for Business Value Is… …a collection of design and measurement practices that develop team creativity, innovation and collaborative behavior to increase the business value of IT investments. Design for Business Value is not an alternative to waterfall, Agile, ITIL. Think of it as a layer that strengthens the methodologies you already know to achieve more effective and consistent results through the power of design. Design for Business Value begins with a team’s commitment to start the project with a clearly defined common purpose and a shared vision of success. Design for Business Value defines the roles, skills, methods, meetings, artifacts and principles to keep teams thinking big, starting small and moving fast.

A few years ago at Microsoft, a small group of us were asked to find ways to improve IT's performance. We had a strong track record of delivering on time, on budget and to scope, but our business stakeholders were still irritated. They told us that IT was expensive, unresponsive and poorly aligned with their business goals. Our job was to figure out how to close the gap between what looked like a healthy scorecard and how our stakeholders actually perceived us. As we began to make progress, word got out and we were invited to share with key corporate customers how Microsoft was transforming IT. We found out that their business partners shared the same frustrations with IT as ours did. IT wasn't working for them. It became clear to us that the challenges we faced at Microsoft, the frustrations and strain between IT and business partners were not unique to us, but endemic to how IT works. Rather than serving as a strategic accelerator of business value and source of competitive advantage, IT was being managed as a cost center to be contained, a necessary evil. It became a self-fulfilling prophecy. Although Microsoft didn’t have a formal service offering to transform IT, we began sharing our ideas, experience and successes with a few key customers informally over the years. As rewarding as this was to drive internally at Microsoft, we couldn't help but imagine what it would be like to solve this problem at scale for other IT organizations too. After a few years, in February of 2014, unable to shake the idea, Peter Moon and a small group of seasoned experts from Microsoft, HTC, and Starbucks put their talents together to create Navicet, LLC. Navicet is a different kind of consulting company. Rather than just outsourcing the work, we strengthen our customers. We focus on transforming IT from a cost center to a strategic catalyst for business value through the power of simple design and measurement practices. It is surprising how fun and empowering building better business outcomes can be! About Navicet
