Experience & Innovation
Therefore, we at DE3P focus on humans and see them as creators and users of innovation. From this human perspective, we find the opportunities in the usual and extract the meaningful from the possible.
Based on more than 25 years of experience in innovation, DE3P operates with a clear methodology. At the very heart of our innovation process is what we call the 77 Human Needs System.
We assume responsibility. Ten percent of the profit of DE3P is invested in social projects. Due to our efficient, digital collaboration based structure this commitment is cost-neutral for our customers.
77 Human Needs
It is very common to talk about needs. But what is the meaning behind this big and somehow fuzzy concept?
After years of research and practicing, we have a simple but strong belief:
Needs are the natural instance, which drives a person to fulfill it's human potential.
Needs are a product of evolution, they steer human motivation and behavior.
Therefore, understanding human needs is the key for change.
At DE3P we use the 77 Human Needs System to classify needs into five categories.
WANT TO KNOW MORE?
Beside presenations at various conferences we regularly offer in-depth workshops where you can learn more about the 77 Human Needs System and how to use it in an innovation process.
A book publication is planned for 2020. For more information please contact: 77HN@de3p.com
Human Needs Card of the Week
We bundle our activities
into three essential clusters:
1) DE3P RESEARCH
Understanding is the beginning. What drives customer behavior? How is the experience of our product and the products of our competitors? What do customers need in the future? Where is an unspotted USP for differentiation?
At DE3P we combine qualitative and quantitative research to find answers to change the game. With the 77 Human Needs system, we use a proven methodology to analyze customer needs, behavior and experience, carry out competitive benchmarks and identify future trends. If you prefer to utilize your own methodology we support you with our of 25 years of experience. We scale cross-country research projects by our broad international facilitator network for you to be able to act in worldwide markets.
Research methods we use:
In-depth interview, service safari, customer journey mapping, field observation, emotional laddering, focus group, cultural probes, in-home visits, basic human needs matrix, customer UX test, expert UX evaluation, online surveys, quantitative driver models, LISREL models, experience KPI surveys, competitive benchmark evaluation, trend map, future scenario technique – ask for more.
2) DE3P STRATEGY
DE3P supports your strategic decisions based on valid insights.
Our strategic framework is built by four pillars: relevant customer needs, current customer experience, competitors’ activities and future trends. With this knowledge, we derive brand and product positioning, product and service portfolios, target pictures and USP definitions. And because you cannot manage what you cannot measure, DE3P develops KPI to monitor the fulfillment and success of your strategy.
3) DE3P CHANGE
Research is wasted without strategy and strategy is powerless without change.
Our 77 Human Needs methodology is embedded in a Design Thinking process supported by agile development methods. The chances for success rise if the innovation can grow in a lean start up environment. DE3P provides you with the necessary skills and support to realize quick wins in your projects. We enable your organization to live a customer orientated innovation culture to generate a sustainable change.
The main areas of our expertise are customer research, design, design thinking, project management and marketing. Additional expertise like coding, legal or architecture are embedded by project requirements.
DE3P is an experience and innovation company. We generate benefit by translating 77 Human Needs into products, services, brands, communications, and processes.
The home base of DE3P is Bonn, Germany. de3p was founded by the business psychologist Dr. Guido Beier. If you are interested in more information about DE3P please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
