Customer Benefit

Evolve the organizational culture by focusing on the complete business ecosystem that includes individuals, teams and the department or company. Create an artistic, collaborative innovation culture that supports addressing complex business problems and successful creative solutions.


For a problem to be solved or an innovative idea to turn into a business success requires a supporting organizational set-up that extends into its business ecosystem. It also requires leadership that nurtures creativity, and competent, ego-free individuals that know how to collaborate with others. Building a business sculpture for us means to focus on all these aspects at the same time, so that the creative potential of an organization and its people can be unlocked and sustained over the long-term.

We use ethnographic research to understand perception and reality, assumption and behavior, myth and company culture. We use deep reflection to propose promising ways to creatively solve problems while introducing iterative, collaborative techniques that enhance team interaction, motivation and group problem solving skills.
