Prophet: Building New Capabilities with Talent + Leadership


By Alex Pavlou

Founder - I help organizations and startups scale their teams.

When it comes to driving company transformation and growth with innovation, Prophet is among the leading organizations that know exactly how to make it happen. They're a team of big thinkers who know how to create strong, actionable solutions for companies of all industries, successfully aiding many big-name companies in realizing new opportunities. When they were ready to add to this team, it was a task they wouldn’t take lightly. 

We were eager to partner with Prophet as they searched the market in hopes of expanding their team of innovators. We took specific steps in their hiring journey to ensure the best matches for their company. Read on if you’re curious to take an inside look at the process.


Identifying the Problem:

Prophet had just launched a global experience and innovation team. This new expansion required not only team members, but Partner-level leaders, managers, and directors. In a saturated market, how would they find this highly specific talent?


Talent Needed:

We need to know exactly who the hiring team at Prophet was looking for. They had needs for talent across several small teams, including:

  • Service Design
  • Product Design
  • Product Management
  • Business Design
  • Customer Strategy


The Big Solution:

We worked closely with Prophet’s leadership team to develop a strong brand story to take to the job market. This story, a standout from your typical job description, helped us to build a strong pipeline of top talent from leading consultancies and corporate innovation teams. Our team oversaw the entire recruitment process on a global scale to ensure the organization had talent to choose from in key locations across Europe and the US.



After confirming interviews and optimizing the experience for both Prophet and potential candidates, we were excited to place Partner-level talent across Service Design, Product Design, Customer Strategy, Product Management, and Innovation Strategy. Additionally, a number of Manager and Director roles were filled in Service Design, Business Design, and Product Management in New York, Chicago, London, and Berlin. 

We were proud to get feedback from a Senior Partner: “The talent we need is in a very narrow, deep space… they consistently hit the bullseye.”
