“Taking part in the EmbArrk session with Arrk really helped our company evolve our digital roadmap. With their help we fully embraced the design thinking process and ended up with a great solution to take back and implement.”

Let us help you gain a competitive advantage
The biggest challenge often faced when seeking a solution for an underlying issue, is understanding how to identify and define the specific business pains you’re trying to resolve. Whether you’re trying to improve your key strategic business objectives or wanting to redesign your digital services – a well-defined problem leads to a better solution.
Our interactive workshop, EmbArrk™, does just that. Through design thinking and collaborative methodologies, we expertly guide you through a process of discovery to define your business horizons and find appropriate solutions to get you there.
Held offsite, your EmbArrk™ session will keep you focused on the problem at hand. The format ensures there’s time set apart from your day-to-day work to reduce distractions and optimise concentration. We also encourage a mixture of stakeholders to take part meaning the outcome will be more valuable and practical.
Our EmbArrk™ engagements operate to a core structure:
Initial discovery: gaining an understanding of your business and to clarify the issues to be tackled and the environment in which they occur
EmbArrk™ workshop: an intensive interactive session, typically held off-site to eliminate distractions and increase focus
Outcome playback: playback of pain points and possible solutions and/or approach to address the needs to sponsors, stakeholders and interested people within your business
For your EmbArrk™ to be successful it requires a cross-functional mix of people to take part:
Sponsors: responsible for ‘owning’ the business issue and targeted outcomes from the programme
Knowledge experts: people within your business with specialist knowledge relevant to the challenges faced
End users: individuals who will be directly or indirectly affected by the final outcome
Your EmbArrk™ will be unique to your organisation and will focus on the following outcomes:
potential development roadmap
high level appreciation of work-streams
technical and business spikes
‘as-is’ and ‘to-be’ journeys
identification of potential dependencies
A recent example
With every business comes different needs and problems. But our EmbArrk™ sessions guarantee a productive brainstorm to dig deep into the core issues at hand.
Recently, we were approached by a personal lending company whose primary focus was to improve their document and correspondence management in order to streamline their loan application process by 30%. However, during our project discovery phase we quickly identified they were focusing on the wrong internal issue and the impact of the proposed project would be minimal. Re-defining the problem, we collaboratively created a more appropriate solution that in turn has already delivered tangible business benefits and a measurable ROI.
