Sometimes there is a need to ask the opinion of an “outsider”.
This can occur at any time in the design process, but also in the situation there is/comes no final decision, because of a dispute.
In these situations, it can give a solution to let someone look from outside the organization.
In such a situation, I can bring your organization new ideas, or to expand an existing idea, or sometimes get earlier fallen idea’s revisited. Also here to unburdening you, without compromising the own organization.
