Re-skin the design created by an external HW supplier, which was already prepared for production. Management wanted a top-notch, market-specific design but the development department did not want to make any changes because Start-of-Car-Production in six months.
We initiated a workshop to assure all departments of success and calibrated the project scope. We conducted specific market research. The first mood boards helped to assure the decision-makers that we were meeting their needs. The result was presented to developers to evaluate the possibilities of the hardware. The appreciated selected theme was finalized for asset flipping requirements and prepared for a key-screen production phase.
We finished ahead of schedule and delivered all key screens three months before the start-of-production. The development department was impressed with the valuable and highly agile cooperation, which did not require any additional investment in development. The decision-makers were thrilled by the outstanding look and feel of the final system.
