LEARNING JOURNEY

Give your team the chance to learn –
and transform your business at the same time

Innovation will not happen when you stay, where you are right now. Literally.

When re-inventing an existing business, you need to understand that innovation is a learning journey. You need to get outside the building, outside your comfort zone and start exploring changing markets, novel customer habits, ground-breaking technologies. 

We will start your Learning Journey with an open “What if…” question to unleash the unthinkable. You and your teams will take new heights, cross the valley of hope, pass the highlands of courage & boldness, take a deep breath at the lake of inspiration, and ultimately leave the territory of uncertainty behind – only navigated by unrestricted curiosity. After all, you will be able to understand what it takes to transform your business.

HOW WE DO IT

Our "how" gets you ahead

Our broad experience and understanding of how global corporates work and take decisions make us the perfect sparring partner to tackle your next challenge. We swiftly know how to turn your business challenge into a tailored concept which will take all stakeholders along and result in tangible outcomes.

EXPERIMENT ITINERARY

Reduce your cost of innovation

When designing a new business or challenging an existing one, you want to make sure you bring a solution to the market which works. It is all about de-risking your idea and ultimately your business. The best way to do so is by starting to identify the assumptions you have built your business idea on. Next is to set-up experiments to quickly test and learn from.

We ensure structure, focus and deriving real key insights are met when designing the experiments. We empower you and your teams to iterate and run at high speed during the test period itself – which is crucial for the test-period. However, next to gaining new business, the true winner is your company culture. With the experimentation program you will push walking the talk of your “Fehlerkultur” dramatically. You will foster a mindset of trial-and-error – which will render your teams more agile and pro-active to stay on top of future challenges arising on the horizon.

STRATEGY MISSION

Get unstuck to unleash your competitive advantage

Sometimes, all you need is an outside-in view, a fresh perspective, and a structured path forward. Your team is trapped in the fog of day-to-day business; markets and customer behavior are changing; you no longer see the forest for the trees. These things happen – however, it is important to become active and get unstuck.

We have developed a proven and unique approach to sharpen your view: according to the design thinking principles we set-up a team of internal and external experts and start to question critically the status quo. We partially follow the BMI journey: we start off with a comprehensive understand phase, reflect upon the learnings, open new avenues in an ideation session from which we craft a compelling vision and strategy options.

What makes this approach so special is the alignment which is created across your whole organization as we take everyone along on this journey. We enable your team to find and create their own route – following the voice from the market.

RE-Route

Business re-imagend: Circular

Sustainability is evolving from a fact report on the footprint of individual product components to comprehensive concepts implying profound changes of today’s business models. Without a doubt “take – make – waste” is obsolete. Raw materials are declining while Mount Waste is growing to ever new heights.

Intelligent concepts, fresh ideas and radical collaboration across industries and supply chains are needed to bring alife “reduce – reuse – recycle” the core idea of circular business models. The question is not whether you want to change your business and your business model. The question is rather how you want to transform and whether you are destined to be the change maker.

Together with you and your teams we re-imagine, re-design and re-energize your business. We organize inspiration sessions, identify opportunities, facilitate ideations with internal and external stakeholders forward, backward and sidewards your supply chain and make sure we achieve actionable outcomes.

Digital, live, around the globe

Our natural habitat is where we can innovate together

We are ready to innovate in which ever format and wherever you need us. Two years of 100% digital workplace have attuned us to stimulate your innovation muscle in online formats. However, as the situation allows, we strongly advocate for live meetings as the quality, the outcome, the activity level and enthusiasm are completely different.

And hey, we are used to travel, to pack our ideation cards, sticky notes and strategy boards – and to unpack our awareness of different cultural backgrounds. As much as we love being on the road to the Country of Breakthrough Ideas – we invite you to use our creative space (aka our office) in the center of Munich.
