In a world of accelerating change, we help businesses survive and thrive in the 21st century. We marry insights with visioning, foresight, strategy, innovation, agile and design thinking, and change management to help executives and their teams lift their eyes beyond the horizon, clear the fog, navigate uncertainty, choose a better path and build a better future.
We work one-to-one with open-minded and growth-oriented leaders and executives and support their teams in creating clarity, direction, innovation, growth, and renewal.
We have learned the hard way that pushing change onto people, top-down, rarely works. And that bottom-up change is more effective – given that it gets the necessary support and guidance from above. That’s why we also work directly with your teams to support your quest and co-create the future.
In our projects, we also often work closely with other experts and consultancies to help our clients succeed. From a trusted professor from the academic sector, a sketcher for visualization of an important workshop, a specialist from a specific association or organization, a Ph.D. for a market or trend analysis, or an executive from another business that could see a benefit in an experience exchange. We also love to directly involve our clients’ customers in relevant projects.
We power renewal through insight, strategy, innovation, and change
Companies operate in an increasingly complex world. Business environments are more diverse, dynamic and interconnected than ever – and far less predictable. Hence, what took you here, isn’t what is going to successfully take you into the future. Our experience is that a continuous focus on insight, innovation, and renewal – for both individuals and business – is a very constructive way to cope with an environment in accelerating change. We also know that the best companies manage to optimize their current business in parallel to exploring and developing new opportunities for the future.
We help you clarify your purpose, vision, and direction
A world of accelerating change can feel confusing. Still, doing your homework helps create meaning, energy and focus throughout the whole organization. First of all, knowing what your organization brings to the world is key. Figuring out where you want to play in 5-10 years means having a vision. Finally, knowing where and what you are today helps you outline the gaps between where you are today and where you want to go. A strategy then helps you identify the most suitable initiatives for you to reach your envisioned future.
We bring an Outside-In perspective
An Outside-In perspective is an important starting point as organizations far too often focus excessively on internal issues, and forget the world around them and their customers. That means a risk of becoming out of touch with markets and customers, and – in the long run – irrelevant and obsolete. In short, adopting an outside-in approach can be seen as a risk reducer and business insurance. First of all, it reduces the risk that the market and your customers are changing without you knowing it. Secondly, it prevents you from suddenly finding yourself left behind more agile competitors, or being disrupted. Finally, we know that a strong focus on understanding and solving customer-jobs-to-be-done will help you succeed.
We help you challenge and renew your value proposition and business model
As the world is experiencing accelerating change, products, services, value propositions, and business models age faster than ever before. A competitive advantage is merely a temporary thing. We can help you structure and understand your offering and portfolio, your customers and end-users, and your competition. And challenge and renew your value proposition and business model. For you to reinvent yourself and become relevant and attractive going forward.
We power you and your team with modern tools and frameworks
We work closely with you and your team to help you succeed. In this process, we combine our leadership experience with a fact-based approach, and a solid market and customer perspective with modern, visual and creative tools and frameworks to unlock future opportunities. Co-creating your future while merging strategic thinking and design thinking with team development. Increasing your capabilities and competencies through workshops, training, and coaching. All ultimately resulting in an in-depth market and customer understanding and new tools and competencies to drive your business growth and powering your future. Outside-In and Inside-Out.
We help create space for reflection, co-creation, and clarity
Our clients are most often busy and ambitious executives and leaders in large international organizations with growth ambitions and a growth mindset. Often with a strong need to reflect and look beyond the horizon. They are leaders who dare to question status quo and intend to power the future of his or her organization through an increased market and customer focus and orientation. We help create space for reflection and to create clarity – through one-to-one meetings, executive coaching, and through facilitated team workshops.
We tailor our solutions based on your needs.
