How We Do It
We scour the globe cataloging the best solutions available to solve pressing challenges. We analyze programs and projects to see where they need help. We use modern tools to efficiently develop accurate insight through methods that are both qualitative and quantitative.
We work together to safely define your needs, wants, constraints, and fears. We know how hard change is, so let's acknowledge it and support each other.
We use any and all available media to help to communicate ideas. In the end if it is not watchable or readable who actually cares? Even the global leaders and CEOs watch TV, right?
We strive to deliver the simplest solutions to the most complex human problems. Why make a solution complex when simple is better? Sometimes simple = better.
We curate insight that leads to smarter and more sustainable decisions. There is no need to reinvent the wheel when there is a better wheel hidden away in a different industry or context.
Design is a deep part of our culture and is more than just developing an aesthetic. It is about delivering effective communication and developing highly usable products, services and experiences. We understand this and advocate for sensitive design thinking across all disciplines.
Oftentimes a pivot is a better solution then starting from scratch. Often improvement is not valued as much as "new" and we have a problem with that. Let's change it together.
We use the most modern tools and methodologies to create and influence policy, technologies, thinking and programs. We find insight not in plain view. From public policy crowd sourcing to medical simulations, to product development we come up with executable ideas. We are a new type of architect; one of global problem solving.
Fail early, often and inexpensively, it is the key to success. Ideate, iterate and redesign, simulation is our modern calculus. From a new facility walk through, to a biotech molecule simulation, to testing a dynamic life saving procedure, sims are safe, fast, scale quickly and are repeatable.
Why We Do It
The human race is growing at an amazing pace.
This causes many challenging problems the world has not yet seen.
We aim to understand and solve those problems at a faster pace.
We are futurists, we engage in interdisciplinary and systems thinking to advise private and public organizations on such matters as diverse global trends, social needs, plausible scenarios, emerging market opportunities and risk management.
Who We Do It For
We are creative problem solving curators. This is our innovation practice. We specialize at developing unique insights, and finding the best solutions globally. We work across sectors directly working on client projects. Our teams have overseen more than a billion dollars in programs and have impacted millions of human lives.
We select exceptional individuals as fellows who steward change and work in research, education, content development, and thought leadership in our global centers and think tanks. They mine for data insights, help influence policy and mentor. They are not directly funded or influenced by clients. We empower them to follow their interests and push projects that could not come to fruition without them.
We develop low cost technologies, unique IP, and products that disrupt traditional models. We're inventors. Technologists. Creatives. Engineers. Designers. Strategists. Analysts. We ideate and create. We'll research what's out there, assess risk, determine the feasibility of your project, invent, develop prototypes, test, source, and build.
