Learning is the way to realize great ideas, improve strategic market positions, explore values-based innovation, and/or create a self-optimizing process. Using our experience and academic knowledge, we help organizations mature their innovation capabilities. Our services include coaching public and corporate ventures and startups.
Values-Based Business Modelling
Values-based approaches to modelling new business take notions of the desirable as a staring point for an exploration of new business opportunities and their comparative evaluation.
