We deliver time to market!

Not Powerpoint slides…

What change would like to deliver?

Innovation is the change you bring to the market.

Innovation is not measured by the number of patents or the volume of R&D expenses. It’s about how much you change the market. And in many ways, we believe that a restaurant chain can be more innovative than a pharmaceutical lab.

Culture eats strategy for breakfast?

Always start with your business culture.

Your culture has its own limits and its own strengths. Sometimes these strengths have to be reminded to you (sometimes they have to be rebuilt). But most of the time, we’re confident your culture is not the same as at Apple in 2007, or Toyota in the 1970s…Thinking you could apply the same innovation “book of the month” recipe is a rookie mistake that we have stopped doing around 2007.

Innovation buzzwords on the surface?

Critical thinking under the hood!

Intrapreneurs and Corporate Incubation

Most of these cookie-cutter programs have devolved in PR campaigns. But if you can let go of the hype, and fine-tune your approach around strategic goals, they still can be very effective!

Digital Transformation

Digital is over. If you’re still speaking about digital transformation, stop trying to apply the best practices from 2007. Leapfrog where technology will be!

Business Model Innovation

In the market, most successful innovations are not about patents but about reshaping the rules of customer engagement. Entire industries are still missing out on this simple reality.

Women Leadership & Mentoring

Mentoring women and facilitating their access to top-level positions is not about gender-washing. It’s a strategic move to open up your business perspectives and boost your business culture!

Innovation Mindset

Innovation is touted by most organizations, but very few have the proper mindset to help their team productivIly explore risk and uncertainty.

Executive Trainings & Keynotes

We design and deliver many executive trainings and keynotes every year. Never on-the-shelf; always taylor-made and fresh!
