Facilitating deep learning dialogues

Facilitating deep learning dialogues

“We are all more connected than we know. Whether it’s business or any other systems-level organizational challenge, deep thinking helped us appreciate and make sense of the complex connections between people, places, objects, events, and ideas. We experienced this as the most powerful driver of innovation. It’s what guides strategic planning. It’s what shapes business decisions that have to be based on future opportunities rather than past events. It’s what sparks the imagination. And it’s what reveals true value.”

Common ground creation from the emerging future

City development: common ground creation from the emerging future

“Affordable living, super diversity, solidarity and climate neutrality are only a few of the challenges with which cities are confronted. They can only be solved through participative citizenship. In collaboration with 51N4E Connect & Transform develops solutions to help cities adapt to the contemporary challenges of growth, mobility, and integration. The Lab XX report outlined three new transition dynamics which formed the basis for inspiring breakthrough pilot projects.”

Making mergers and acquisitions a success

Making mergers and acquisitions a success

“There is more to mergers and acquisitions than ‘the art of the deal.’ To truly succeed, you need to inventorize your knowledge assets and capabilities, integrate your resources, restructure systems, motivate employees, satisfy customers, and surpass expectations. Connect & Transform provided us step-by-step guidance both in the predeal and in the postdeal integration phase. This helped us to realize a quantum step in both value and performance throughout the process.”

Supporting business model shifts

Supporting business model shifts

“It is one thing to map out a new business model. But making it work requires an implementation design. We benefited a lot from the deep, cross-functional participation approach that allowed us to address market feedback and to co-create beyond the traditional boundaries in our sector. We succeeded in developing a simple, relevant, and intuitively understandable concept, while not oversimplifying the complexities to make it work.”

Integrating innovation in the DNA of your organization

Integrating innovation in the DNA of your organization

“Innovating requires identifying the problems that matter and moving through them systematically to deliver elegant solutions. We learned that at the heart of change in our organization lies a simple organizing system – an underlying structure and order governing what works and what fails. Sensing our future value creation potential enabled us to design the accountability for innovation in each role in our organization. The method enables us to spot what we missed and how we could become even better.”
