Strategy & Innovation Activities

Adapt

Relevance is dynamic. The best businesses do more than respond to customers needs, they anticipate them.  They also embrace new operating activities (it’s not just about technology) that can improve the customer experience, productivity and profitability.

We’ll help you look at your business holistically to find gaps where new approaches could lead to big opportunities. This can include presenting inspirations from other business models that might spark new insights. This is the assessment piece, it can be big or small!

Refresh

This is all about innovation and strategy development. We use lean, customer-driven methods to identify opportunities and establish a strategic direction. Activities like customer insights, stakeholder and market analysis, idea generation, prototyping and traction metrics are all aspects of our highly practical approach.

Whether we’re solving persistent problems, or tackling new frontiers, we help you build future capacity (new skills and mindsets) for strategic problem solving. Added bonus - we’ll help you build purpose and impact into the plan, so you can tap into motivators that go beyond profitability.

Grow

Ideas and plans are only part of the work.  The real value comes from actually getting projects off the ground. So, we won’t leave you hangin’ with just set of recommendations. After we help you raise the bar, we’re available to help roll out new initiatives with accountability teams. This is where change gets its traction and leads to measurable results.
