Rapid prototyping

Moving from ideation to high-fidelity digital prototypes in less than a month.

The exponential growth of technology is fueling an age of innovation, when even the world’s largest companies aren’t immune to dying on the vine because they haven’t kept pace with ever-changing customer needs. Businesses that thrive are quick to evolve with the world around them.

KPMG’s rapid prototyping is a highly effective way to drive change. It enables you to take action — to explore ideas, learn early, test assumptions and pivot.

We can typically get from ideation to a working high-fidelity prototype in less than a month. This means reduced risk and quicker time to market.

Rapid prototyping brings design thinking to life

Organizations that combine rapid prototyping with design thinking are simply better at adapting. They're able to make quicker decisions, bring greater transparency and purpose to agile methods, and align more holistically on a single strategic vision.

Our process is simple, direct and repeatable.

Step 1: 

Hypothesize — Come up with a big idea that you believe will solve a pain point and deliver more value to customers. (1–2 days)

Step 2: 

Make — Build a high-fidelity digital prototype. (2–3 weeks)

Step 3: 

Share — Share the vision. Get feedback. Then iterate or go back to step 1. (1–2 days)
