Our Philosophy

Our system is built on some simple beliefs.

02


A problem well defined is a problem half solved.

03


Diverse thinking gives us the best chance of finding transformational solutions.

04


Every client should have access to the best talent.

05


The best talent should get access to the work they love to do.

Our Operating Principles

Four principles to drive clarity and momentum.

 

Best In Class

Access to a community of best in class creative and strategic talent. Experts in your specific problem.

Diversity

A smart, simple way to define problems, run by our highly skilled problem definers and client leads.

Codification

Codified products and processes that deliver customised thinking. Our SOLVE™ methodology is designed to provide a frictionless and inclusive experience.

Speed

Delivered at pace.


We work with some of the most amazing clients and brands in the world.

All our clients share a growth mindset. We like to think of them as ‘Learn it Alls’ not ‘Know it Alls’.

They come from a diverse range of companies, many from the biggest Fortune 500 through to succesful scale ups. 

But whatever their size they are looking to make an impact.

 

Problem Definition Training

Give a man a fish... 

We are passionate about defining problems, because we believe every opportunity for growth starts life disguised as a problem. 

You just need to be able to see it. 

Our Solve for Growth™ methodology isn’t something we want to keep to ourselves. We want everyone to get better at defining problems, so they can gain the clarity and momentum to really lean into an increasingly complex world and make a positive impact.

So in the spirit of openness, we have turned this into a blended learning training program that is today teaching the art of Problem Definition to hundreds of marketers, innovation, R&D and HR people at the world’s largest multinationals. To learn more click here.
