Defining and Informing the Complex Field of User Experience (UX)

Booz Digital (part of global management consulting firm Booz & Company) works with clients to develop and execute their digital strategies.

 

We have the unique strength of being vertically integrated, which includes digital and business strategy, human-centered product design and ethnographic research, digital UX/UI creative, and IT enablement. This allows us to invent, design, bring-to-life and execute on digital businesses and experiences that are routed around a sound business model and drive real impact for our clients. Our customers may be large incumbent leaders under threat from upstart disruption or companies seeking to be a leader and forge profitable new digital businesses and experiences not yet realized. Unlike an advertising/digital agency, we focus exclusively on imagining and building digital businesses vs. campaigns that may only live for a short period in time.

We have a boutique and start-up like focus and culture, but with immense power and resources behind us. Our environment and approach to problem solving and creating solutions is multidisciplinary, collaborative, and thought provoking. We seek to be bold and provocative in our ideas, but are fiercely pragmatic and impact driven in the outcomes we create for our clients.
