Design thinking is a powerful process of problem solving that the SNX Team applies to understand user needs, challenge assumptions, and redefine problems to craft innovative, breakthrough solutions that go beyond the obvious. When design thinking approaches are applied to workplace design,the success rate for innovation improves substantially which is why many of our designers and strategists are design thinking trained.
To move beyond the obvious, we seek to understand through open client dialogue & observation the nuances of how your people work and what they care about.

Change is necessary for growth, and with it comes many challenges. More often than not, a great business strategy ends up failing when change is not managed and communicated clearly and to the right stakeholders. When normalcy is disrupted, people tend to resist changes to their habits and routines, thus it is critical that an effective change management plan is in place to ease the process. You can have a grand plan in mind, but if there is no buy-in and support from your people, the plan may be hard to execute and the initiative will fail resulting in a loss of reputation, trust, decreased productivity, employee engagement and missed business goals.
Our strategy team will work with you to anticipate and identify challenges and resistance in your organization, developing communication and action plans to manage expectations and encourage a sense of involvement and shared responsibility. This is to get employees to get behind the initiatives and endorse the change plan. With the COVID experience, employees are more open to changes and business owners are now looking to adopt a hybrid working model. With the world changing rapidly, companies who still choose to retain the pre-pandemic status quo are likely to lose out to their competitors who are ready to embrace change.
We have a proven track record of successfully delivering change programs for our clients.

This enables us to gather data seamlessly, speedily and efficiently.
Sensor studies can be anywhere from a few weeks up to 6-months. Our data analytic platform provides 15 standard reports including peak seat occupancy and average space utilization. Data analysis & workplace observations are key inputs into the strategy formulation process and together with the other engagement activities enable us to make evidence-based recommendations.
