Tencza Designs has worked on all points of this continuum, and can recommend a variety of approaches with “just enough” analysis for a sound beginning to any project.
Demonstrated competence. To see an example of a project involving complex analysis, read this Tencza Designs Analysis Case Study.
Tencza Designs has the tools. We have experience in a wide variety of tools to complete needs analysis, job and task analysis, cost-benefit analysis, research, competitive analysis, and many other processes that fall under the umbrella of “front-end analysis.”
tools, however, are only as effective as the facilitation and synthesis
skills of the designer using them. We also have the individual and
group facilitation skills to gather and synthesize information from
