Each Launch Control consultant is a proven leader and seasoned veteran who brings a unique combination of technical chops and years of business consulting or interactive agency experience. This provides our customers with the flexibility to engage us for turnkey solutions or to augment their existing team with one or more of our technology specialists.
Goals Driven Methodology
No matter how small or large, we start each project by identifying its core business goals. Only then can we develop functional requirements that are crystal clear to all stakeholders -- this includes customer product owners as well the technical teams who will ultimately be responsible for developing the solution.
During every step of a project, we continually vet new requirements and ask tough questions like "what business goal does this feature fulfill?" or "explain to me how this drives revenue?". Often, we learn that if we can't convince ourselves of the need for something, then it's probably not critical to the customer either.
Though we love and appreciate cutting-edge visual design just like everyone else, it should never define your functional requirements. We believe that visual design is an important component to a world-class user experience but only if meaningful functionality underlies it.
We value the time and resources that go into technology projects and therefore always seek to design features and integrations that have the potential to be re-used in the future. This often means considering services-oriented architecture as well as proactively working with customers to identify and prioritize their longer-term project goals and seek out hidden efficiencies.
Focused on Delivery
Our business structure is structured to be lean, efficient and most importantly focused on delivering the customer's end solution. We avoid traditional overhead by embracing a dynamic team structure that's not concerned about utilization percentages or billable time.
