This company is an independent strategy and innovation consulting company, based in Geneva, Switzerland.
Our advisors are experts in strategy, innovation, agility, organisation and information systems. We have a wide range of experience in corporate finance and in corporate strategy (M&A, Acquisition Integration), in functional strategy and in operational strategy. We advise our clients on focusing on their most important customers. We support them in their business development challenges, especially when faced with market turbulences. We can also provide a pool of interim management resources in project, program and portfolio management (PMI certified), in business analysis and in Agile (Scrum certified).
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.
The industries we serve include:
- Healthcare: Biotech, Medtech, Eyecare
- Luxury: Clock and Watchmaking as well as Fine Jewelry
- Perfumes, Fragrances, Flavours and Aromas
- Video Games (Online and Consoles)
- ICT: Information, Communication, Media and Technology
- Tourism and Transportation
We believe we are agile because we adhere to the Agile Manifesto and to a set of values inspired from agile coaches. We also believe that the current market conditions and all sorts of turbulences make it very difficult to predict future revenue with accuracy. Hence, we help our customers to adopt a strategic agility approach, with simple rules, quicker and smaller itérations. Read More

Disruptions to expect in the education and translation sector
Using Google Glass in the classroom will have vast implications. Students will be able to live-stream the lecture to classmates who are out sick that day, while still being able to pay attention. On the other hand, students will have access to all the answers they need right in front of them while taking a test. That means schools will need to determine the best use cases for Glass in the classroom. This will probably be a revolution for all test based exams.
But Glass also has vast implications for language learning since it can provide real-time, text-based language translations of what people are saying.
This means in turn that it will become much easier to do business across borders and that language barriers will evaporate. Read More
