Rapidly lead and land multiple breakthroughs in products, services, business models, operating models, adaptive strategies and ecosystems
Don’t wait for rapid change to make you irrelevant. Our transformational innovation programs ensure that you stay ahead of the rest by turning your greatest threats into market-leading innovations that keep you match fit for the digital, disrupted, and damaged world.
Your organization is facing a “triple threat” of world-historical importance: 1) The Damaged World: existential risks like climate change, pollution, pollinator collapse, and depression. 2) The Digital World: exponential technologies like AI, blockchain, 3D printing, and robots. 3) The Disrupted World: fast-changing social norms that are making Industrial Age systems out of date
Take charge of these changes with our Transformational Innovation Programs. We provide senior leaders from ambitious organizations with a world-class innovation process, 90+ proprietary tools and elegant facilitation to land significant breakthroughs at the level of products, services, business and operating models, adaptive strategies and ecosystem innovations (and usually a Transformation Roadmap combining all of them).
Break out of investing enormous efforts for marginal returns in commoditizing markets—by harnessing exponential digital technologies to transform emerging internal and customer “pain points” into purpose-driven innovations that lead to exponential growth for you and a regenerative economy for us all.
“Huge impact! Outstanding framework and powerful tools.”
Take charge of rapid external change and metabolize it into (exponential) value
Fearlessly engage in the fast and furious changes in the VUCA environment - driven by our digital, damaged and disrupted world - and metabolize them purposefully into opportunities for exponential value-creation and positive impact

Harness the insights and collaborative power of your ecosystem
Rather than rely on expensive market research for the insights that power all breakthrough innovations, we bring key partners (suppliers, board members, shareholders, experts etc.) into the process at points where their systemic insight can make the difference—and then they are vested in transformational solutions when pitched to later on
Finish programs ready to pitch, implement leanly, and cascade change
By the end of each program you will not only have a long-term roadmap for delivery but can also have strategies for lean implementation, plans for rapid prototypes to test hypotheses, narratives to engage the necessary resources internally and externally, and a mindset and behavior strategy to afford the transformation(s)
