Programming & Planning

Our team of design thinkers have an infinite drive to solve complex design problems in new and creative ways.  A force of energy, our team actively listens, probes, talks and plans. We explore, exchange ideas, and iterate solutions with our clients. SLAM’s discovery-driven planning method guides our signature charettes, diving deep with clients and stakeholders. A messy but key phase where shared ideas are unlocked, hurdles are overcome, innovation flows, and the big idea is synthesized.

Drawing on a medley of data-driven benchmarking tools, performance metrics, and human behaviors, we create spaces that allow our clients to thrive, to excel, to lead.
