I’m thrilled that Dachis Group‘s growth and momentum continues with the acquisition of XPLANE, a visual thinking company. What does this mean? We have added a distinct set of capabilities to help clients diagnose the drivers of business problems and map out effective solutions. Their acumen in process design and change communication combines with our existing strategy formulation, program design, and technology implementation capabilities.
If the style of graphics above seem familiar, but the name XPLANE isn’t, and you’ve been in the internet space for a while, you may have first encountered XPLANE’s work over a decade ago like I did on the pages of Business 2.0 magazine. These were the guys who illustrated how new concepts like group buying, e-commerce payment processing, and workforce collaboration models work. It’s one thing to read about a process; it’s another to actually see it illustrated.
Dachis Group has been working on social business design for almost two years now and we have been putting pieces in place to boost our capabilities and reach, while completing innovative client engagements along the way. You can now find our over 100 staff around the world in five different countries, from our headquarters in Austin to Portland, St. Louis, Boston, Washington DC, London, Amsterdam, Madrid, and Sydney.
