In business, the ‘status-quo’ is a dangerous state to be in – to knowingly or unknowingly be stuck in a state of comfort or fear.
Some entrepreneurs and business leaders are aware of whenever their business gets into an overly safe or stagnant state - with little or no innovation. And these leaders proactively rattle things up so that their teams can take necessary actions to stay relevant in the future. Other companies need a slight nudge from the outside to help them push their own capabilities and grow.
We are RattL, an Innovation & Design Strategy service [under Crystal Planet Labs LLP], committed to make the world better. We do this in a few different ways. For proactive business clients and not-so-proactive business clients, we partner with them to work together to innovate and create relevant products and services with a better understanding of their customers' needs.
Apart from this, we also work on some internal challenges that will hopefully improve the world by creating in-house solutions in areas of our interest, and by helping our clients create their own innovative products and services. relevant people-centric innovations. We make use of our blend of management strategy, human-centered design thinking, and behaviour - something we have been refining over the years. We strive to constantly challenge the status quo, to rethink products and services; and to design products and solutions that are better aligned to customer needs. We help them understand their customers, and to innovate and bring relevant solutions to life. We enable our clients to grow by conceptualizing products and services with a deeper understanding of their customers' needs - products and services that are easy to use, and that make their customers happy. =)
