“There was a 40% improvement in development time. That translates into financial savings, and also makes this a new opportunity, because it probably wouldn't be possible if it were going to cost more.”

User Experience Designer
San Francisco Garage
“You know the workshop is going well when
people are jumping up to the whiteboard or
they grab a marker and they’re excited to
start writing something down. Generally, I
think when you’re in the Garage that
attitude comes across. People get ready to
Senior Designer and Design Lead
“What’s most exciting about my role is just
that diversity of different types of projects,
engagements and challenges that we’re
solving. I’m particularly passionate about
healthcare projects, or ones where you feel
like you’re really making a difference and
are having a larger impact on people.”
New York City Garage
“The funny thing is that there’s no typical day in the Garage. I’ve worked in
a traditional IBM office but in the Garage literally every day is so different. In college, I went to an IBM networking event, and I thought it was cool that IBM was trying to tackle these big real-world problems. I joined a company that has a long history and a distinct set of values. The people at IBM that I’ve interacted with have been very friendly &emdash; honest and open. I wanted to put my work toward something that would actually help real-world problems in the end.”
“I love to work with other developers, get their creative minds flowing and introduce them to a new technique of working with the Garage Method. By the end of the project, it’s almost a little tough to say goodbye because you’ve built something that’s inspiring to them It’s exciting to see clients’
eyes light up in the immediacy of knowing rather than working on this project for two years they could work on this project for two weeks and see an incremental, as we call it, a ‘minimum viable product’ out and accessible to customers.”
Lead Garage Designer
“Design at the Garage is about innovation and helping our clients think differently about a problem. That involves technology, but isn't defined by it. Using IBM Design Thinking, we get the clients to think about problems in new and exciting ways, leading to innovative solutions that provide real value for the client and their users.”
"It's really important to me that I'm involved at the hands-on level. We do a lot of pair programming in London. We really like pair programming with our customers and when that's not possible, we pair program as a team and that ensures that we share skills through the team. It means that I'm able to share some of those skills that I've got because of my seniority with the rest of the team, but then it's a two-way thing. So I'm always picking up skills from the rest of the team as well."
New York City Garage
"I work on everything from initial contact with clients to helping them understand what type of use case would be great for them to bring to the Garage. Then, once they bring that use case to the Garage, I’ll lead a Design Thinking Workshop to help them understand what they could build to support that use case. And then from there I’ll actually work with our developers and Architecture Team to actually design and do the MVP build. That’s not just pushing pixels, but the full user experience &emdash; user testing and all of the best processes that go into digital product design."
“With Design Thinking and the Garage Methodology, we can quickly deliver something that is innovative. We can get feedback and we can pivot, and we end up having something that they like. It’s this combination of speed and end results which makes the customer happy. We have several customers who return for a second project or sometimes a third.”
“I love when clients challenge us to think differently and challenge the perception that we have. It also gives us opportunity because we need feedback to learn and grow. It’s that feedback and the ability to respond that gives us the opportunity for growth, to be more effective in what we do. I think that’s exciting.”
“One of the things which is a breath of fresh air to me as a traditional architect is the whole notion of Design Thinking and uses in a design. When we conduct Design Thinking workshops, we get these folks in the room and spend two days where design is solely done through our design thinking method. We elicit all the pain points, capture customer needs, and focus the rest of the development process on the highest-value pain points.”
Christopher San Soucie
Leader WW Garage Strategy

“Further, what inspires me personally each day is the caliber of the global Garage team members. The passion and creative thought they bring to each workshop, each development iteration, and each client interaction is deep-seated in their overall drive for our customers’ success. Being a part of this style of consulting practice is the gift that keeps giving.”
