Strategic Advisory for Innovation

Technology is turning the world upside down. We help organizations find the right strategy to implement change.

Our Philosophy

Transformation is about more than technology.

We believe transformation entails profound cultural change for companies affecting both the organizational chart and the way people work.

We also believe sustainable transformation comes from within — our aim is to keep as much of your transformation strategy in-house and aligned with the entire organization as possible.

We think open source. We believe open solutions help reduce costs, speed development, and drive innovation. Organizations that don’t get involved in open source projects face a competitive disadvantage.

An open source approach also has spillover effects in a company’s culture. Thus, we use open source techniques to foster networked thinking, agile leadership, and meaningful organizational change.

Our Offering

We offer bespoke solutions to complex problems and help organizations with a variety of needs. We help anchor your activities in the future by facilitating new connections and new possibilities so that your organization can thrive.

Roadmapping & Auditing

Every transformation story is unique. We map our clients’ path by analyzing the changing landscape in their specific industry and identifying opportunities for new ideas, products, collaborators, and businesses.

Ideation - Prototyping - Design Testing - Products

Problems need solutions. And solutions only come by working on them. That’s why we believe in working out concrete ideas that demonstrate change and embody new ways of thinking about old problems, as well as finding new ones to solve.

Strategy Insights

Strategy is only as good as the assumptions that underly them. We combine analytical rigor with the entrepreneurial spirit of investigative journalism. We access a wide variety of sources, from media and industry analysis to our own contacts inside organizations to provide the best information and analysis on our subject matter.


We want to facilitate change in organizations, bringing together our own expertise and a range of outside collaborators, from software developers and technologists to designers and creators.
