We develop strategies and innovation systems to help Fortune 500, government, and nonprofit organizations thrive in the face of change.

Strategy

With roots in business planning, technology, innovation, and design, we serve as thought partners to leaders tasked with going beyond business as usual. Our networked culture allows us to punch above our weight, convening the right thinkers and doers to support our client’s goals. Our work is thoughtful and considered, taking into account an organization’s near- and long-term conditions for success, as well as the forces affecting its industry.

Agile Execution

Smart slide decks are nice. Successful programs are even better. We help our clients “make it real” by standing up groundbreaking programs. Our role in execution is defined by the need. When fresh thinking is required, we lead execution or curate a best-in-class team. In other situations, we collaborate with existing partners and talent while transferring requisite competencies.

Open Innovation

Our open innovation practice designs and produces large-scale prize competitions for both the public and private sector. We are well-known for pioneering a multi-stage challenge approach that shepherds the strongest solutions through an iterative process of refinement, closing the gap between concept and commercialization. Luminary Lightbox™, our proprietary open innovation platform, provides a white-glove experience for solvers, administrators, and juries.
