How We Can Help
Customer Strategy & Marketing
Program and Project Management
Based on the MIT innovation strategy we can help accelerate growth by transforming a company’s innovation capabilities and establish its place in the innovation Ecosystem. Building the capacity internally and externally.
Our approach to strategy is based on the notion that we live in a very transient world and that strategy formulation and execution should be based on a strong core and a dynamic outer layer that can continuously learn on how to deal with disruptions.
We help clients with their most complex strategic challenges and build tailored solutions to achieve sustained growth.
We approach digital in a holistic matter, its not just a technological change; digital impacts every aspect of your organization from strategy to organizational design, from every customer interface and the data generation at each customer touch point. Your digital future starts here.
Customer Strategy & Marketing
Existing and potential customers are growth drivers. We investigate and combine the data driven customer insights with practical experience and approach to enable sustainable growth of your customer base.
Program and Project Management
Within your organization getting programs or projects smoothly executed, external leaders and managers can help you navigate through the organizational clutter and politics to successfully deliver. We map the internal and external stakeholders and set out a clear approach to deliver and how to deal with potential showstoppers and prevent scope creep. We build the team with you.
Our advisory has brought real results to companies all over the world.
A dynamic industry in need of an effective, long-term B2B strategy.
The telecommunications industry is very dynamic and under constant pressure; having to enhance network capacity, changing the business model due to new (inter)national regulations or simply fending of competition.
For large network service provider (NSP) we teamed up with a renowned international telco consulting firm, and were tasked to redefine the tactical and long-term B2B strategy as well as providing the implementation roadmap.
The result was a range of direct cost saving, double digit revenue growth and multiple cash flow efficiencies within the organization and towards external suppliers. During the engagement we established a good relationship with the board and the Business unit teams, gaining deeper insight into the organisation, managing to define further cost savings and improve internal processes.
The ambitious goal of developing and launching the first global GMI summit.
The initiative to start a global industrial and manufacturing summit originated from the Abu Dhabi Government and was lead by one of their sovereign investment organisations.
The goal was to launch the first GMI-Summit with high profile strategic industrial and manufacturing partners across the globe. We worked closely together with the local organization and lead the programme management office; liaised with multiple key stakeholders internally and externally -large multinationals - as well as high profile government officials and NGOs.
The result was a successful launch with the key theme “the 4th industrial revolution” as well as the launch of several high profile pilot projects on additive manufacturing with key global players.
Navigating market expansion in the fast-growing and fast-changing AI industry.
The application of AI is becoming more and more manifest in many industries and organizations. Understanding the what, where and how to, is the biggest challenge. Especially when budgets do not allow for full stack in house development and deployment.
For three separate boutique AI start-up companies we helped to review their market expansion strategy and how to reach out to potential partner networks and clients.
Individually the companies managed to refocus their efforts on specific target markets and revise their international expansion plans towards a more targeted approach. Simultaneously we managed to find two strategic partnership for the international business development cutting the cost for the internal organization and tapping into an established trusted network.
