Salsa provides access to our most experienced and skillful digital consultants to help you explore your latest idea/opportunity for true digital transformation. Maybe you have the seed of an idea and need help assessing pathways and potential, maybe you have a well-developed concept but need to further understand possible execution paths to verify business benefit, or perhaps you’re thinking you need to reset a particular project but struggling with such an impactful decision.

Think tank workshop
Salsa uses a workshop to explore your opportunity and formulate possible technical and execution approaches. An interactive canvas is used to gather inputs for the problem space, define success and high level roadmaps for success.
The workshop process will be tailored to the particular opportunity or business challenge, however it generally follows the following process:
Discover the opportunity
Explore the problem space
Outline objectives, outcomes and success
Discuss present digital landscape constraints, relevance, options, etc.

Identify high level strategies
Assess fit of latest digital trends, products and/or options to opportunity, for example:

Think tank solution pathway
With the problem space, success criteria and high level approaches agreed in the workshop Salsa compiles possible solution pathways offline ready to present back to you.

Offline analysis of possible sizing based on understanding of problem, success and possible strategies
Compile one-page strategic roadmap
