We help companies think big, start small and learn fast.

Our Strategic Stress Test is a fast, thorough, and objective assessment of a proposed or ongoing strategic initiative. We verify the potential benefits and, perhaps more importantly, identify potential weaknesses. By warning of where problems might occur, we shape planning, negotiation, and implementation to address those weaknesses.

We work with management to install strategy development and decision-making processes that create the space for innovation. At the same time, we ensure that there are safeguards that allow for clear criteria and comprehensive questioning of potential acquisitions and strategic initiatives—so that the corporate fate is decided through robust deliberation rather than momentum.

We deliver briefings to boards of directors, management teams, and even entire organizations that enhance the context and content for innovation and strategic success.
