Looking out for the project’s best interests

Bringing ideas to life

In our role as the project visionary, project lead, or project manager, we’re always looking out for the best interests of the project. In support of our work, we have developed methods with a structured approach to weighing various aspects and shepherding the project from vision to realization.

Three questions

Before embarking on a new development project or moving ahead with an existing one, we ask ourselves three questions:

What do we have

in the space, the context, or the process?

What do we want

to do to take advantage of and develop the space in its context, or to conduct a smarter process that leads to a clearly defined objective?

What can we do

having answered the first two questions, to make the road to fulfillment of the project both shorter and straighter?

We have developed our own models for ensuring a structured process.

Dp Backcasting

Backcasting is a successful way to approach the future. This planning method is particularly useful for addressing complex questions. The fundamental question that DP Backcasting™ asks is:

What should we do today to make the vision possible tomorrow?

Start by keeping the vision in mind. Then look backward from the vision to the present.

Go step by step toward the vision, keeping in mind the question, “What can I do now in order to realize this vision?”

DP Stakeholder Dialogue

We strive to create value for all involved stakeholders. To formulate goals and establish a framework for a project, we have developed a dialogue method. It is based on the needs and requirements of the stakeholders and the attributes and potential of the site. As process leader, we get a holistic view of the project, and an active dialogue allows us to bring out what is most essential to its success. The framework can be broadened, a shared view can be created, and the value of the completed project can be raised.
