You have an idea. We help you make it happen.

Solving business problems, improving the user experience, and exploring new monetization streams often come with lots of questions and unknowns. Are your assumptions accurate? Does your organization know what your employees and customers really want? How could this new idea fit within your company? Skookum can help answer all of these questions and more. With our Rapid Innovation & Prototyping Program, your team can gather feedback quickly, minimize risk by checking feasibility before making a larger investment, and reduce time to launch.

Quickly go from concept to clickable prototype

Accelerate learning and uncover blind spots with user feedback


Our Offerings (Rapid Innovation)

Proof of Concept

If your technology aspirations are bold, a Proof of Concept (POC) phase is an economical first step towards realizing the bigger vision. Our POC teams develop lightweight prototypes to test interactions or technologies. Whether the outcome is pitch or pivot, we give you tangible evidence to mitigate risk, inform product direction, and achieve buy-in.

Design Sprints

Skookum’s adaptation of the Google Ventures Design Sprint methodology helps you envision what your business model, software product, or service could look like, plus gather early feedback. By quickly building an interactive prototype and testing it with real users, you can quickly ideate and validate an innovation before making a larger investment.

Usability Testing

Effective feedback and shared learning are crucial for success. We bake testing into the innovation process to quickly test hypotheses with real users, accelerate learning, and inform business and design decisions. With our testing insights and recommendations in hand, you’ll have all the information needed to proceed with confidence.

Build vs. Buy Assessment

Should you build your new product or experience in house, or buy a third party solution? Find the answer through our Build vs. Buy Assessment. With our help comparing existing technologies vs. a custom build, you can quickly understand all of your options and evaluate the best path forward.

Software Rollout Pilot

Want to test your new concept, prototype, or solution with real people? Skookum can offload this responsibility from your team to not only save time, but also ensure you get the data and insights needed to take the next step.
