How do we work?

How can we help you?

Within the Futures by Design journey, we strongly believe that you can already do a lot of improvement within the organisation yourself. Therefore we created a lot of tools to guide you through this journey. 

During the trajectory, you will have about 4 brainstorm moments where you can discuss the outcome of the tools with the partners. This trajectory is suited for every SME that wants to become more data driven. From a self-employed person in the fashion industry to a larger company in logistics. 

To participate in our project, you must first register your company. Here you choose one of the partners from your region so that we can best support your organization. You don’t have to do much yourself yet!

Data-driven work

data-driven company collects and processes data to gain insights that eventually lead to business changes. In this respect, companies can differ in the way they a)collect their data, b) clean and organize the data to obtain insightful information, c) assess the value of the insightful information and d) ultimately implement a change in their business processes.

Are you as an SME convinced that working data-driven can add something to your company? This doesn’t mean that you can suddenly work more effectively or immediately apply the latest technologies. In fact, becoming a data-driven organization costs time and money, and is done step by step. We believe that the following steps can be helpful:

1. Data Maturity

Determine how mature your company is in terms of data.

2. Business Challenges

Find out where your company currently faces challenges.

3. Check the data

In view of the business challenges, check if currently within your company :

  1. the relevant data is collected correctly;
  2. the relevant data is structured and clean enough to provide insights; 
  3. share these insights with key policy makers;
  4. these policy makers use the insights to take action.

4. Create value

Discuss these insights with a professional Data Scientist to work together to create more value for the business by using the data.
