I can solve your product strategy, product discovery or product design challenges. My main focus throughout my 16 year career has been helping businesses and teams answer three main questions-
Depending on the scope of the project, I can work independently, bring my own team or be embedded within your team. Book an introductory 20 minute discovery call with me.
What product should you build and why?
Are you building the right solution for your customers?
How should your product behave, feel and look?
Customized packages can be discussed based on your business needs. I can provide an estimate based on a 20 minute discovery call.
I believe in a “user first” culture as opposed to a “design driven” culture. This is because if you obsess over your users and work backward from their behaviors and beliefs, your competition won’t be able to replicate what you do. On the other hand, the UI and the UX of your product can be replicated by your competitors eventually. It doesn’t give you a true and robust business moat.
The root cause of product design problems lie beyond the user interface and user experience of your product. To become a true “user-first” company, you need to re-think your process and environment. These are broad, long-term problems that require commitment at all levels of an organization. Only then a transformation to become a “user first”, design-driven organization can be achieved.
I’m open to long term transformation opportunities wherein I bring a team of professionals to work with you. Book a discovery call with me if you are a founder or a leader looking for an experience transformation or set up your organization to be “user first” from the get- go.
This is a general list of design areas or activities that are included.
I believe in technology being an enabler for a more fulfilling life. Practically however, it can confound and confuse many doing exactly the opposite of what it was created for. Humanizing technology so that it gets out of the way and lets people do what they need to do or what they previously couldn’t, is what led me to into design.
I have a few tenets for my process that I abide by or remind myself of:
My mission is to exceed user expectations and deliver the best possible business value on every project.
I’m obsessed with bringing a human centered mindset to defining a problem; and a lean, experimental approach to finding the right solutions.
I have taken a variety of personality tests. I’m somewhere in between INTJ and ENFJ, T-Shaped and Libra. My top Strength Finder 2.0 themes are- Intellection, Ideation, Input, Responsibitly and Adaptability.
My chief strengths are strategy, ideation, research, synthesis and critique. My leadership style ranges from autocratic to laissez faire. I choose my style based on this decision-making matrix, which I’ve found very practical.
I have created a list of instructions of how I operate to improve communication and transparency with my teammates, reports and stakeholders. Check them out- Rishi’s Operating Instructions.
Finally, my last name is pronounced B-Love-D-Curr. That makes it impossible to forget, not pronounce. Thanks for stopping by, here’s a little gift that’ll make you smile.
