Green Desk is much like a NS business card (provided by an employer), but this time for the usage of flexible (co-working) office spaces. With Green Desk you can work anywhere you like, not limited to one location or one brand of flex spaces. The comfort of an office, but at a more convenient location. And the sustainable part? No more traffic. When there is no need to commute, just don’t.
I worked as an Innovation Consultant with the initiators of Green Desk to sharpen the concept, validate the product-market fit and realize the pilot.
“I just want to work in a nice office space, but I don’t like to commute.” – a pre subscription survey response
To discover if this concept is worth investing in, I helped the team defining the Business Model Strategy, find its riskiest assumptions and plan ways to validate them with these 4 methods:
- Business Model Canvas sessions: to make sure what it would be that we sell and how we could best find our way in in the market
- Pre-subscription: this is a smoke test/fake door test with a small survey to find out how many people are willing to participate
- Pilot observation & data: actual booking data, review scores and feedback from 100+ pilot users
- Survey & interviews: to find out the ‘why’ of the behavior we have witnessed in the pilot
We build a concierge MVP (together with a developer and a UX designer) in 3 months time to test the ideas in real life and find out what the actual behavior of users we can expect in the future.
The pilot with 100+ participants from 3 companies will be conducted in Q4 of 2022. Results are expected in January and will be published here.
