Strategic Advisory

Technology is turning the world upside down. We help organizations find the right strategy for understanding and implementing change.

Our Philosophy

Transformation is about more than technology.

We believe innovation 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 innovation 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 look outside of themselves for help face a competitive disadvantage.

An open source approach also has spillover effects for a company’s culture. Thus, we see open source as a philosophical approach to change that fosters networked thinking, agile leadership, and meaningful organizational change.

Our Offering

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.


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.

Trainings & Workshops

Together with partners we provide insight trainings and workshops, where we share our general experiences and try to establish an outside perspective on us, our potential and abilities.
