Our Design Studies identify the business, performance and learning challenges facing an organization and provide practical and detailed recommendations that lead to lasting results.
The three pillars of a Regis solution are system dynamics, cognitive neuroscience, and human-centered design. Our design methodology is rooted in four design thinking principles that make our solutions experiential, relevant, and user-centric.
Empathize with multiple users
Learning solutions often target one specific audience—but we know that it takes more than a narrow learner focus to design an effective program. In our experience, no matter how dynamic a potential solution is, if you can’t facilitate it, deploy it, or have internal resistance to it, it won’t work.
Focus on the problem before the solution
We believe that the best solutions solve the most pressing problems. Our methodology provides space and focus for examining a problem through multiple lenses, ensuring that when we shift our attention to the solution, we are creating an engaging performance solution with true business value.
Divergence before convergence
Our track record proves that Regis’s solutions have a dramatic effect on the behavior of our clients’ learners and on the performance of our clients’ businesses. Our disciplined and thorough approach to generating, evaluating, and refining initial ideas results in rich, rigorous solutions that solve the right problems.
Co-create to enable shared vision
When geographically dispersed teams try to partner, reaching shared understanding on outcomes and success criteria can be elusive. We believe that a deep commitment to co-creating solutions enables teams to understand the problem and the solution in real time and avoid costly and frustrating misunderstandings later on.
