A new method


A new method


Fail fast, fail forward

FEAR OF FAILURE HAS PREVENTED MANY AN ENTREPRENEUR OR INVENTOR BRINGING THEIR GENIUS IDEA TO MARKET. THE SAME WITH ORGANISATIONS... HOW CAN THE RISK BE MANAGED?
The hacker ethos is built around a model of build fast and dirty, test then iterate. This methodology enables risk to be diverted into small manageable sections. If something doesn’t work, throw it away and pivot.

HACK - ITERATE - MOD - PRODUCT
Iterative periods of development with stakeholders and users around the MVP (Minimum Viable Product) mod process to product, reduces risk and increases engagement.

FOOD SURPLUS
Where data reveals the true story
There is a recognised issue with food surplus in the UK. Assumptions had been made that this was because of consumers over-buying, or supermarkets over-stocking. By following the data and supply chain, the evidence was strong that if container ships were supplied with timely and accurate weather information, they would no longer sit with the cargo rotting at sea, unable to get to land before the food spoiled and would be unusable.

BEYOND NAMES
Finding Refugees in Somalia and Kenya
Rewired State worked with Refugees United to address the challenge of refugees in Kenya finding their friends and family across camps. Names were not a useful identifier as they were often the same, or had been changed for safety. Rewired State developers discovered a history of story-telling in the Somali community, so used mobile recording software to record stories that only family or villages would know, then wrote an algorithm that matched words or phrases, thus enabling the charity to match story-teller, communities and families.

BE EVERYWHERE
HR, branding and broad skills
Most organisations are looking to increase their internal tech talent by bringing in digitally savvy young people to train in sector-specific skills. Multiple HR departments have been helped by the Rewired State workshops in data and behaviour of millennials. By understanding how to release branded information into the social digital space, using smart algorithms and smart data, they have worked with us to dramatically increase their reach whilst reducing the cost of recruitment to almost zero.

SKILLING UP
Recruitment and hack days
A government client has managed to reduce their tech team recruitment costs to close to zero by replicating our hack methodology to identify talent that is both enthusiastic and knowledgeable in their sector, also with proven technical skills. They also replicate our methodology in-house to identify the silent talent of staff already employed, freeing up latent resource and maximising the potential of in-house staff.

We have recently become IBM Partners for Innovation. We formed this partnership to further explore the opportunities to help our clients, as well as IBM’s biggest clients, disrupt their industries. It gives us the opportunity to use IBM’s world- class developer tools to better prepare for and deliver superior solutions for clients.

We can also provide access to these tools to our community, which means building unique and creative projects is easier than ever before.

Being IBM partners is an awesome opportunity to use world class tools. IBM show off their amazing products and our developers produce better outcomes!

Smart Data

Much of the data held by organisations is a mess, imagine a library where every book has been thrown to the ground, and all the pages have been ripped out and scattered. That’s the reality. Digital services and products built on such data is destined to fail, or become prohibitively expensive. Messy data is a big risk. We order and standardise the data to make it easily searchable and retrievable.

Design Disruption

Innovation for innovation’s sake is risky. We design disruption around reality, create new products and services that can pivot fast. This can only be achieved once the horizon has been mapped and compliance, regulation and known behaviour has been taken into consideration. We begin there: tell us what you know, after that we begin to weave the magic.

Expert Consultancy

As the data and digital renaissance moves at relative lightning speed, our senior staff and networks use their connections and research to keep up with industry pivots and trends. Drawing on experience of the digital marketplace we are uniquely placed to provide targeted and discreet insight into what to take notice of and what is likely to fall away. Traditional consultancy matches this insight with your organisation to create responsible and scalable digital strategies.

Stack Innovation

We began with running hack days for specific challenges or data sets, to realise the potential and remove fear of the unknown. The unique Rewired State methodology has been developed since 2009 into stack innovation, applying the hacker ethos to development but knowing how to bring the talent into the room, set the right environment and then iterate with stakeholders through to product.
