Building foresight and a powerful agenda for growth

The path to sustained growth and value creation is filled with twists and turns. We’ll help you determine what to pursue and what to avoid - and we'll deliver clarity and enduring value along the way.

Innovation and Growth Strategy

Our approach to innovation generates actionable, scalable outcomes.

We work side-by-side with your teams to articulate a clear vision, a robust set of options to grow in new ways, and the technical and creative capabilities required to deliver ongoing results.

The path leading to success is paved with three major stepping stones – Foresight, Insight and Action. We call it FastPathSM.


No business operates in a vacuum. We see your enterprise in a global, national and regional context, pulling together the forces, technologies, disruptions, and plausible futures impacting your industry. Together, we map the fresh insights that inform growth strategies in your environment, always working towards your best possible future. 


With a clear understanding of your strategic position and your aspirations, we help you define how to build towards that future. We draw upon a rigorous, proven approach and vast network of expertise across many disciplines to generate those breakthrough ideas that lead to actionable outcomes. 


We work together to turn a broad set of ideas into a focused portfolio of real opportunities. We then help design and initiate plans for development, validate assumptions and uncertainties, and scale for sustained success. 

Our Approach

FastPath is a proven set of approaches and tools that equips companies to build a portfolio of ideas, rapidly test and iterate on those ideas to prove viability, and effectively transition and scale solutions across operations.

FastPath is designed to dramatically decrease development cycle times, balance flexibility with rigor, overcome resistance to prototyping and iteration and efficiently allocate resources to the right opportunities.

“Every company must find a way to approach the kind of transformative, disruptive innovation needed. It requires an entirely new mindset led by a courageous and bold vision. Allow people to explore, experiment, and learn without knowing the outcomes to create future growth for the company.”

Peter Bryant

Board Chair

Culture and Capability Development

We help assess company culture as it is, and determine the actions needed to become ‘fit to innovate’.

Results are not sustainable without the right mindset, capabilities and support. But the skills required to be successful can be taught. We equip clients with insights and methodologies to close the gap between where they are today and where they need to be in order to bring in their desired future. This is our approach:


Do you have the right leadership, culture, processes, and capabilities in place to enable an innovative culture? We establish a baseline to determine your organization’s 'innovation muscle'.


Do employees believe innovation is possible in their organization and that it is relevant and achievable for them? We train leaders to exhibit the mindset needed to reach their objectives.


Do current processes produce a predictable flow of results? We help create systematic ways to engage the organization on the journey and create environments for ideas to flourish.


Do you have clear metrics in place to know how you're doing and make adjustments as needed? We help companies determine what to measure, how to measure it, and then implement strategies to improve over time.


“Aspirations for growth and innovation must be combined with a culture that is designed to deliver results. There must be key elements such as a clear vision, openness to new thinking, paths of engagement for employees, comfort with ambiguity, and an entrepreneurial mindset applied to execution. This is hard to do, but powerful when companies get it right.”

Innovation Program Design

The right culture and portfolio of opportunities will only get you so far.

For sustainable innovation, the right systems need to be in place. We help organizations develop a structure for ongoing innovative momentum and measurable results. The right program for action is the link that drives definitive action. This goes beyond a diagram, roles and tasks distribution or even hands-on change management. The right support structures will strengthen your internal foundations but will also cement you into a larger innovation ecosystem, making collaboration and partnering easy. 

Organize to Drive New Business Innovation

Getting buy-in across your organization requires a clear understanding of objectives and the various corporate entrepreneurship models that will work best. What’s the mandate, why are we innovating, and what do we hope to get out of it? Defining short, mid, and long-term objectives is critical to supporting ongoing innovation efforts.

Structure, Funding and Governance

Who should own innovation? Is it assigned to a corporate group or business unit? Is it a function of technology, strategy, or perhaps marketing? How is it funded? For ongoing innovation to be successful, we must define what is appropriate for your organization.

Bring the Outside In through External Venturing

We help organizations identify the right set of focus areas, investment strategies and vehicles, and the mechanisms to continually scout, source, and invest in an external innovation ecosystem, including startups. We also facilitate setting up relationships with the right communities. 

Engage Key Stakeholders

Collaboration is a key ingredient to be successful in your innovation efforts. Who needs to be involved? How do you keep the right people involved and supportive? We assist clients throughout the journey to ensure change is managed effectively so your initiatives thrive and produce results.


“Speed is the new basis of competition, and the rules of the game have totally changed. In this environment, corporations can no longer drive innovation only from within; innovation must be also outside-in, to an even greater degree than ever before. Leaders must design ecosystem strategies and create the right external venturing structure to accelerate innovation and growth.”
