Featured in The New York Time's Best Seller Book
If you’re familiar with the term “Build-Measure-Learn”, you’re at least somewhat aware of Lean Startup Theory, a methodology that is now widely accepted as an effective means of shortening product development cycles. SGW Designworks was featured in New York Times #1 Best Seller The Lean Startup by Eric Ries, a book that pioneered this theory — and shifted the focus to rapid cycles of learning and fast development iterations.
Let’s Build Something Together
Whether you’re in early-, mid- or late-stage of your product development, we’ll cover your needs along the way and answer as many questions as we can.
Do you work with startups?
While most of our cleints are on the enterprise track, we do work with well qualified individuals and startups. Developing a product does take significant resources (time and money), so be prepared to share your budget expectations and funding model with us in our initial conversation.
I already have internal engineering resources - how can a company like SGW Designworks help me?
Over half of our clients have internal engineering or r&d teams. These businesses hire us for a few different reasons:
- Their internal teams are already overburdened with the day to day sustaining engineering required for existing product lines.
- They are lacking the specific skills and experts required for product development as opposed to sustaining engineering or primary r&d.
- Projects are behind schedule, and a fresh approach or perspective is needed to get things moving again.
Can SGW Designworks produce design packages in line with our corporate standards?
Absolutely. Most of the larger businesses we work with have requirements about drawing format, dimensionless, design review processes, and more. We are accustomed to tweaking our processes and outputs to meet the needs of our client companies.
Is SGW Designworks able to get into long-term business relationships with client companies?
Yes. Most companies that choose us as their product development team stick with us for a long time. We commonly run multiple projects in parallel for client companies, and engage with businesses for long periods of time. In these long term relationships, we are able to develop a deep understanding of the client business, and their challenges. This allows us to not only work on development projects, but also to help senior leaders to prioritize their development pipeline and develop long term development plans.
“SGW is an amazing company with the flexibility we require for innovation. They have also assisted us in developing our designs for a new innovative product that will be launched very soon in tactical operations. Thanks to the team at SGW.”
“Working with SGW has been a pleasure. We think this because they truly have a passion for what they do and that is clearly visible in their work. We look forward to working with SGW as a team member in the future.”
“Even though SGW Designworks is in Boise and the project was in Baltimore, I selected SGW because these guys are good and they know the molded foam process, the foundry process, instrumentation, and design of experiments. They are a really talented & creative group of engineers”
