Our Approach

Following a structured 6 step development process

Starting with “our understanding of your problem” we work closely together with your organisation. From first focus and idea through to development and start up of production.


Opportunity Definition & Focus

• Analysis of the customers project, incl. background, objectives, deliverables timing, etc.
• Agreement on our role in the project; where does Verhoeven Ontwerpburo has real added value
• Understanding of the customers problem and how we can help
• Definition on what on what is in scope and what is out of scope


Concept creation

Definition of the problem
Find inspiration and Generate ideas/solutions
Selection of ideas and checking if the idea solves the development challenge
Fast prototyping and global testing
Conclusions and Go / no go


Proof of principle
