How do we work ?

Our customers have a strategy and want to realise the execution premium. They need both to succeed. We help them prioritise the information they need in turbulent times.

We advocate the creation of strategy focused, customer centric and agile organisations. We also advocate personal development of critical employees and strategic learning in complex and dynamic environments.

Many companies are facing turbulences.

In this context, we can help:

- by showing how strategy can create and capture value.

- by explaining how managers can evaluate which activities are creating or destroying value.

- by translating insight into action.

- by closing the gap between strategy and execution.

- by driving execution that combines both flexibility and rigor.

Disruptions to expect in 2018 We foresee the following disruptions for this year: 1- . Mobile-first to AI-first A major shift in business thinking has placed Artificial Intelligence at the very heart of business strategy. 2017 saw tech giants including Google and Microsoft focus on an“AI first” strategy, leading the way for other major corporates to follow suit. Companies are demonstrating a willingness to use AI and related tools like machine learning to automate processes, reduce administrative tasks, and collect and organise data. Understanding vast amounts of information is vital in the age of mass data, and AI is proving to be a highly effective solution. Whilst AI has been vilified in the media as the enemy of jobs, many businesses have undergone a transformation in mentalities, viewing AI as enhancing rather than threatening the human workforce. 2. Personalisation & Customisation In consumer goods, life sciences, aviation and financial services in particular, businesses will continue to personalise products and services to satisfy individual consumer needs without unduly increasing costs or waste. This will positively impact end to end supply chains, data flows and encourage capital investments. Personalisation has become a key customer requirement that companies need to offer in order to remain competitive. 3. Meatless meats Until recently, the options for plant based alternatives to meat have been pretty limited. For those following plant based diets, tofu and Quorn were often seen as the best options for protein substitutes. Now, a new wave of food producers are creating meat alternatives that look, feel, smell, and most importantly taste just like the real thing. Companies like Impossible Foods, Beyond Meat and Memphis Meats have attracted huge interest, not to mention investment from backers including Bill Gates and Richard Branson. The growth of meatless meat companies reflects environmental concerns surrounding meat consumption, as well as consumer demand for greater choice 4. Personal data value platforms Personal data has become an economic asset. However, a lack of consumer knowledge about exactly what it is used for and how much it is really worth could lead to a reluctance to share data. Personal data value platforms will help to inform individuals about the value of their data, driving a wave of new products and services aimed at helping consumers to take ownership of their personal information. The introduction of legislation like GDPR will also contribute to this goal as organisations will have to comply with strict data protection rules. 5. Huge growth in the as-a-service model everything-as-a-serviceThe growth of the as-a-service business model has resulted from changes in both corporate and consumer needs. Customer demand for resources has triggered innovation in the reuse and remanufacture of goods, reflecting the trend of environmental awareness and a preference for access over ownership. For businesses, as-a-service solutions cut costs by simplifying IT infrastructure. Between 2016 and 2020, the global XaaS (anything as-a-service) market is forecasted to grow by 40 per cent each year. 6. Sustainability becomes a major feature in innovation According to a report by the Business and Sustainable Development Commission, sustainable business has the potential to unlock $12 trillion in new market value. Companies have recognised the importance of pursuing sustainable development to create maintainable strategies, answering consumer demand for environmental awareness and supporting the implementation of the circular economy. This willingness has run alongside the efforts of official powers such as national governments and collective international bodies like the United Nations. The organisation’s ambitious Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will increasingly feature on the innovation agendas of businesses. 7. Voice based virtual assistants become ubiquitous Google HomeThe wide uptake of home based and virtual assistants like Alexa and Google Home have built confidence in conversational interfaces, familiarising consumers with a seamless way of interacting with tech. Amazon and Google have taken prime position between brand and customer, capitalising on conversational convenience. The further adoption of this technology will enhance personalised advertising and sales, creating a direct link between company and consumer. 8. Steps towards Industry 4.0 and the factory of the future The installation of smart sensors and the application of data analytics will deliver further steps towards the factory of the future. The wider use of automated processes powered by AI, advanced robotics, and IoT connectivity will contribute to realising the ambitions of Industry 4.0. Otherwise known as the Fourth Industrial Revolution, Industry 4.0 promises a more connected world in which machines carry out mundane tasks. Many companies, such as Amazon, have taken tangible steps to implement this in automated warehouses. 9. Blockchain comes of age Organisations across a wide range of sectors are already experimenting with blockchain technology to establish trust networks, improve transparency, and reduce friction and costs. Despite fierce debate, interest in cryptocurrencies powered by blockchain remains strong. More commercial businesses are accepting cryptocurrency payments, starting of course with Bitcoin and Ethereum. Industrial applications will expand, encompassing the obvious financial uses as well as innovative solutions for energy, trade, marketing, healthcare, security and more. 10. Improved decision making with Prescriptive Analytics The emergence of smart data discovery capabilities, machine learning, and the automation of the entire analytics workflow is enabling organisations to handle vast amounts of information. Smart data discovery capabilities in particular are driving huge advances in how we understand unstructured and dark data. Using this data organisations are able to predict market developments bringing greater depth to prognostics. Prescriptive analytics goes beyond knowing, providing recommended actions based on prior outcomes. A recommended course of action to achieve a specific outcome. 11. CRISPR Disrupted DNA - DNA editing with CRISPR first successful(?) experimentsGrowing interest and investment into gene editing technologies will allow research teams to precisely alter, delete, and rearrange the DNA of nearly any living organism. 87 per cent of new CRISPR users were also new to gene editing, showing that CRISPR’s simplicity has catalysed the further development of the scientific technique itself. We will see CRISPR’s use cases expand, battling disease and world hunger. 12. Convergence As emerging technology and new business models transform sectors, the lines are blurring between what were previously seen as distinctly different industries. The convergence of industries opens up huge opportunities for organisations to evolve, offering new products and services to their customer bases. Automotive companies, for example, are investing in ride sharing apps as they look to reinvent themselves as mobility solutions, and banks are working with FinTechs to evolve alongside consumer needs. 13. Commercial drones and UAVs Moving beyond the hobbyist and warfare applications, commercial drone use has begun to grow across a wide range of industry sectors. Drones are a relatively cost effective solution for surveying physical processes, whether they are happening on a construction site, in a field, or to aid security control in urban centres. No longer a novelty, drone application is set to balloon – provided that suitable regulations can be made. 14. Diversity becomes a major boardroom issues If 2017 was the year we woke up to the lack of diversity and equality across the world, 2018 will be the year that individuals and organisations begin to address the problems leading to increased diversity within major organisations. Diverse teams have been shown to achieve greater productivity, and are naturally more innovative due to their varied backgrounds. Whilst scientists have shown that a lack of diversity has the potential to create AI programs exhibiting racial and gender biases. This, along with fulfilling a moral code of fairness and equal opportunity, will lead businesses to take steps to address the lack of diversity within their organisations. This includes (but is not limited to) a wide spectrum of age, education, gender, race, and sexuality. 15. Growing interest in digital twins digital-twinsA digital twin is a simulation model that updates and changes in accordance with real world assets to enable better decision making and improve understanding of the state of systems. A digital twin could be used to simulate a piece of complex machinery, for example, predicting how it will respond in certain scenarios and how best to optimise performance. Digital twins will provide businesses with the ability to respond to changes, improve operations and add value to the Internet of Things. 16. Spatial Computing augments the real world High quality Augmented and Mixed Reality is here, and it’s not just for industrial workers wearing Google Glass. Notable steps by major companies – such as MagicLeap’s long awaited headset release and Apple’s commitment to mobile AR – are opening up previously unimaginable opportunities for corporations. Advances in Augmented and Mixed Reality technologies will see an explosion of commercial applications way beyond entertainment. We are on the cusp of a major shift in how we interact with the real world, with our smartphone or smart glasses as our gateway and guide. 17. Renewables and Clean Energy near tipping point The cost of renewables is plunging faster than anticipated as the efficiencies of wind turbines and solar panels increase. This, coupled with huge advances in energy storage, will see the continued decline of fossil fuels. Incumbent businesses are shifting their focus to renewable options as consumers gradually adopt clean energy options. One of the most notable triumphs of the renewable cause has been the manufacture of economically viable electric vehicles, and the implementation of an infrastructure to support them. 18. Increased cross sector innovation Convergence, collaboration and the open source movement have all contributed to the encouragement of cross sector innovation. Companies are looking to businesses in other industries for insights and expertise that can enhance their own products and services. AgriTech and FinTech, for instance, are developing alongside each other to tackle financial issues within farming. As cross sector innovation becomes the norm, we will see the greater application of successful strategies and business models from one industry to another. An exciting year ahead. . . Whatever happens in 2018, we can be sure of exponential growth in disruptive technologies and that the business landscape will shift really fast. Read More

  • L’art de concevoir un bel espace d'innovation (fablab, coworking, showworking, makerspace, hackerspace), qui soit à la fois convivial, interdisciplinaire et bac à sable pour l'émergence d'idées innovantes. Ou comment appliquer les principes de l’UD aux nouveaux espaces de coworking. L’émergence des espaces de coworking, principalement à Paris, et maintenant dans de nombreuses villes de Province, a créé une nouvelle dynamique qui regroupe de nouveaux types d’entrepreneurs, des développeurs de génie et des chefs d’entreprise. Cette émergence est internationale et semble durable, principalement dans les capitales et les grandes villes créatives et universitaires. Ces espaces de coworking attirent les start up dans leur phase de création et leur apportent des opportunités de business, de collaboration et du lien social. Qu’ils soient indépendants ou liés à une entreprise, ces nouveaux environnements se veulent différent, plus conviviaux, plus inclusifs, plus responsables, et attirent de nombreux talents sensibles aux univers du libre et de l’ouvert. Afin d’aider ces nouveaux espaces à se développer, et à être réellement le plus inclusif possible, nous recommendons aux concepteurs de ces nouveaux espaces de collaboration de suivre les principes fondammentaux de l’UD, que nous devons à Ron Mace (en photo) à savoir : - Usage équitable Les environnements de coworking doivent être conçus "universellement" c’est à dire accessible au plus grand nombre quelque soit le niveau d'incapacité. - Souplesse d'utilisation Les espaces de coworking sont conçus pour être compréhensibles par tous et souple d’utilisation - Utilisation simple et intuitive Les environnements sont conçus pour être intuitifs et perceptibles par tous. - Tolérance aux erreurs et à la sécurité Les environnements de coworking doivent être conçus pour assurer la sécurité et la confiance des utilisateurs quel que soit l'usage. - Contexte interculturel Les environnements sont conçus pour être compréhensibles par l'ensemble des usagers quelle que soit l'origine culturelle. L’échange d’expérience et de culture est fréquemment mentionné comme une des richesses de ces espaces de coworking. - Critères de la faisabilité économique Les environnements et les services de ces espaces sont conçus pour intégrer des : - capacité de marché et d'innovation - potentiels commerciaux - rapports de faisabilité - gestion de projets incluant le développement durable L'UD est une philosophie de rentabilité. - L’innovation associée aux consommateurs Les produits, les environnements et les services sont conçus pour plaire et être utiles à tous, l'UD associe les avis de consommateurs et des utilisateurs dès le début du processus de la création de produit, dès le début de la conception des espaces. Ces mêmes principes s’appliquent à la création d’espace de collaboration en ligne et mobile. Pour adhérer à ces standards, l’afUD recommande de suivre les standards publiés par W3C. L’afUD vous accompagne dans cette démarche et vous aide à rendre vos espaces et environnements physiques et virtuels, vraiment UD, vraiment ouvert, vraiment responsable.

  • Que faire de votre espace ? Le premier juillet 2015, nous avons décidé de nous rassembler à quinze pour louer un espace vide, avec pour projet de le transformer en espace d’innovation. Nous étions tous enthousiastes à l’idée d’avoir enfin un espace à nous, et tous motivés Après 6 mois de recherche de locaux, et une fois que nous avions trouvé ce fameux espace qui correspondait à l’essentiel de nos critères, nous avons choisi le design thinking pour décider ensemble de plusieurs choses, notamment qui aller faire quoi, de quoi avions nous besoin, dans quel ordre allons nous acheter des choses, par quoi faut il commencer … Le design thinking nous a aidé à y voir beaucoup plus clair, et surtout à nous mettre d’accord sur les grandes directions à prendre. Ces grandes directions de la première heure ont eu un fort impact et ont influencées à long terme le positionnement de notre espace, et de sa structure associative porteuse. Que voulions-nous vraiment ? Nous étions quinze personnes regroupées dans une structure porteuse associative (Pangloss, association loi 1901), et nous voulions tous sortir de chez nous, ou de nos bureaux isolés, faire des rencontres agréables, ne pas boire le café tout seul, et développer nos business respectifs. Nous avions aussi comme ambition de créer des espaces d’innovation, des tiers-lieux, des fablabs et des living labs. Comment mettre tout le monde d’accord ? Parmi les principaux défis à surmonter, nous voulions faire grandir notre communauté, rendre cet espace vide attrayant et chaleureux pour tous, et aussi ne pas nous disputer trop vite sur les grandes orientations de l’association. Au delà des statuts et du règlement sur lesquels nous étions tous d’accord, les façons de gérer l’association, de meubler l’espace, de l’organiser, de le décorer, tout était à discuter. Nous voulions aussi garder tout le monde, et attirer d’autres personnes pour nous rejoindre et mutualiser le plus possible, ce qui peut l’être. Quelles solutions avons-nous trouvé grâce au design thinking ? Nous avons utilisé un atelier de design thinking, collaboratif et participatif, dès le premier jour qui a suivi la remise des clés. Nous étions assis par terre avec une table en carton. Après avoir visionné un film sur le design thinking de Stanford à Palo Alto pour avoir quelques bonnes idées, tout en gardant nos spécificités, nos envies, notre positionnement unique. Les bonnes idées que nous avons utilisées : - avoir des zones pour différents usages - avoir une zone de convivialité (un vieux canapé de récupération), pour que les discussions qui doivent avoir lieu, puissent avoir lieu - démarrer avec ce qu’on a (en l’occurence pas grand-chose!), comme dans les principes d’effectuation. - améliorer le confort au fur et à mesure. - baisser les prix lorsque notre communauté grandit - rédiger les personas des personnes que nous souhaitons attirer (d’ailleurs cela fait bizarre, quand ensuite on rencontre le portrait robot de ces personnes, lorsqu’ils nous contactent et que nous les rencontrons en vrai!). Pour que notre espace soit réellement collaboratif, nous avons choisi d’écrire sur le mur un seul message, un message fort : « Tout doit rester modulaire » pour donner du pouvoir à chacun, et nous assurer que le prochain membre qui pousse la porte puisse avoir autant la possibilité ses idées, que le premier qui a mis le pied dans notre espace. Tout cela pour quoi ? Nos résultats ont été assez incroyables. On ne s’attendait à rien, et nous n’avons pas été déçus ! De 8 personnes, nous sommes devenus 120 en 3 ans. Nous avons développé nos propres outils de gestion de l’espace. Plusieurs projets ont gagné des concours internationaux. Bien sûr, des membres de notre association ont quitté la région, mais ils n’ont pas quitté notre communauté. Ils sont devenus nos meilleurs ambassadeurs, là où ils se trouvent. Nos résultats financiers sont aussi très satisfaisants. Notre quatrième année a été une année record. Désormais, l’objet de notre association est déjà atteint, nous avons créé le premier fablab de notre département, nous sommes certifiés par le MIT, nous sommes devenus la plateforme technologique du Grand Genève et acteur clé de l’innovation dans notre région. Pour poursuivre notre croissance (en terme de membres et de projets), nous devons déjà nous réinventer. Si c’était à refaire … On me sollicite fréquemment pour mettre en place une dynamique positive et un esprit entrepreneurial dans des espaces, qui ont été longtemps vides ou mal utilisés, ou pour des espaces qui vont se construire ou que l’on souhaite réinventer. Notre succès est-il réplicable ? La réponse n’est pas si triviale. Bien sûr, nous avons appris plein de choses, chemin faisant. Nous sommes convaincus que la différence vient de la force de notre communauté, et de notre capacité à assembler nos compétences avec un haut niveau de confiance les uns de les autres. Est-ce réplicable si on utilise la même méthode de design thinking ? Je fais confiance à la méthode, aux processus de design thinking, cela fonctionne. Aurons-nous le même succès et les mêmes résultats ? Probablement pas, parce que chaque espace aura son positionnement, la forte personnalité de ses dirigeants (ils sont tous uniques), et un niveau d’envie de collaborer, un niveau de confiance, et des possibilités de co-créer sur les bases d’un assemblage de leur compétence, qui sera unique. C’est justement pour cela que les méthodes agiles que nous avons utilisées, sont systématiquement très utiles, car la seule chose dont nous pouvons être certains, c’est que chaque espace, écrira sa propre histoire. Et c’est tant mieux (parce que je ne ferai pas cela tous les jours !!!).
