Motivf believes in using the same approaches and methodologies on ourselves that we recommend to our clients. While we work with clients where they are, we strive to use transparent, iterative, results-driven processes in all of our work. For us, that includes our internal operations (Marketing Team, Money Team, People Team, etc.) and our research and development studios. We continually refine and improve our methods through our own work and deliver those efficiencies to our clients.

Regardless of what we call it (agile, human-centered design, SCRUM, SAFe), our agile operating model is based on three core concepts: Results, Customer Mindset, and Innovation.

Results

Everyone associated with a project or program in any capacity should focus on its return on investment to the organization. In addition, metrics for the project or program must be developed collaboratively and have the full commitment of all stakeholders. And the outcome is the shared responsibility of all of those involved.

 

Customer Mindset

In the context of a project or program, the “customer” is the set of individuals who will use the outcome or solution or adopt the change process. We recognize that individual human beings are the ultimate source of value. By leveraging empathy with “customers” we can uncover uncommon value.

Innovation

Managing through iterations is one way to ease the cognitive load that real-world uncertainty imposes.

Human nature craves certainty, but this urge can lead to a common misconception that the “right” way to deliver projects can be codified and repeated consistently, like widgets rolling off a production line. This belief, while comforting, does not fit an uncertain and changeable reality that is required when focused on the customer.

We look for ways to empower your people and remove “us versus them” thinking.
