In order to deal with the state of constant change in which we find ourselves, a refreshed perspective is necessary. Our philosophy stems from our belief that fully engaged people are the engine of organizational vitality and success. We bring a seasoned and reasoned action orientation based on our own experience as business leaders, university faculty and entrepreneurs. This action orientation rests on a foundation of systems thinking, a deep understanding of interpersonal and organizational relational dynamics, current research and design thinking.
Design thinking is a human centered approach to creative problem solving and innovation. Design thinking is a process that utilizes core elements from the designers tool-kit, such as empathy and experimentation, to develop high-impact and novel solutions. We believe that when managers and leaders think more like designers, organizations develop deeper insights for strategic and customer innovations.
