In part 1 of this blog post, we have talked about the scientific method and how to apply it to business problems. In this part, we will focus on applying this method to a real-world problem.

Research shows that only 1 out of 8 digital transformation processes are successful. The question is ‘Why?’… The answer is quite simple: IT specialists put great focus on the product and how the end-product is going to look like/function, and less on why a product is needed. And this mindset is often, unfortunately the cause of failed digital tools. Luckily, the IT industry is slowly evolving from a technology/product-first approach to an end-user-first approach. At Flow Pilots we use Design Sprints to ensu

Hadden we durven dromen dat het glazen plafond na ons opiniestuk plots aan diggelen zou liggen? Niet echt. Maar het omgekeerde hadden we ook niet zien aankomen: dat 2020 zo mogelijk nóg erger zou worden dan de jaren ervoor. Inclusie blijkt voor heel wat organisaties nog een ver van m’n bed-show.

In this digital transformation, we believe the end-user should always be your main focus.

We had the great pleasure of talking with Julie Scherpenseel.The Chief Growth Officer of ML6 talked about the future of AI, how this will impact our society and how increasingly important collaborations between companies are and will become.
De start-upfase is Flow Pilots al lang ontgroeid maar de sfeer van de begindagen, die hangt er nog steeds op het kantoor in Antwerpen. “We hebben een vrij jong team, en dat niet-aflatend enthousiasme is hier echt heel goed voelbaar.

To highlight the benefits of working with Xamarin we interviewed our developer Michiel Sioen about his approach and experience as a developer at Flow Pilots.
As we position ourselves as a company that can help you in your digital transformation journey, the question is raised, ‘what is digital transformation’?The concept itself still provokes mixed feelings as both words entail change. A shift from analog to digital and to change the way you are working. It’s about learning new skills, stretching yourself and the organisation in adapting a new way of working and investing time and money for an uncertain outcome.

For my internship, I was tasked to make Call’y, a to-do list for calls you have to make.

From problem to solution - optimise your process, a blogpost by our CTO, Michiel Sioen.
Problem-solving is an integral part of a lot of professions. Yet everyone struggles with it one time or another. There are a lot of known truths, guidelines and assumed knowledge out there but I find it’s very easy to skip the relevant steps when you need them.
