Brainstorms

Sometimes all you need is a quick conversation to help get unblocked and move things forward. Our team of subject matter experts are available for 90 minute telephone or video brainstorms on an array of topics from the strategic to the tactical.

If there's an immediate challenge or opportunity you'd like to discuss, but aren't quite ready to commit the time or resources to a strategic immersion, get in touch and find out how we can help.

Immersions

Our interrogatory intensives achieve in 1-3 days what management consultants often take months to deliver. Underwritten by our 10-step framework, the end result is a set of clear agreements between stakeholders, and required next steps for immediately and successfully executing an annual strategy that achieves the organization’s purpose. Our strategic immersions have been designed, tested, and vadliated through delivery to a range of clients including multinational corporations, multi-stakeholder initiatives, global foundations, development finance institutes, corporate innovation labs, academic institutions, conferences, communities, entrepreneurs, and nonprofits.

systems design

A complex adaptive system is a system in which a perfect understanding of the individual parts does not automatically convey a perfect understanding of the whole system's behavior. It should come as no surprise, therefore, that there is a strong relationship between systems of this nature, and wicked problems.

In order to effect systems change, it is first necessary to map the affected system, then design a framework that makes that system more effective, before developing infrastructure that transcends and includes the existing system. Systems design for complex adaptive systems, therefore, requires identifying opportunities for interactions between various known systems, and as such is an iterative and agile process. 

At the core of our systems design process, is a focus on each of the following interrated systems.

SOCIAL: Systemic social change often requires major shifts in human behavior. Understanding the role your organization plays in a broader ecosystem is critical to the success of any social venture. Understanding the cultural context and trends in the sector and region that you operate in can either help or hinder the growth of your organisation. Our team has deep strategic and practical expertise in creating, nurturing, and scaling cultural movements to maximise positive impact.

FINANCIAL: No matter what type of organisation you are running - or hoping to run - developing a sound financial model that runs true to purpose, generating revenue that doesn't create mission drift, raising funds from values-aligned partners, and compensating your team based upon value created instead of hours worked are all critical to your success. We understand all too well the various challenges involved in world-positive ventures, and bring decades of experience to bear upon these issues.

LEGAL: Developing the right legal form for your venture - for-profit, non-profit, hybrid, or cooperative - is essential for ensuring the success of your mission, and the long-term viability of your organisation. It is not a decision to be rushed, nor is it one to be abdicated to your lawyers (if you even have them). Our team have worked with ventures all over the world during enterprise formation, reinvention, and termination.

TECHNICAL: Knowing what tools to use, systems to develop, or technologies to adapt or adopt is no small task, especially in the face of overwhelming options. Our team have designed and built software and hardware, launched and sold technology companies, and developed innovation ecosystems in a range of environments from Silicon Valley to Syria to ensure that solutions are fit-for-purpose.

Program Design

One of the common refrains in events for decades has been “How do we ensure the learnings, connections, and progress made here continue to grow over the next year before we gather again?” Yet, by and large, events have failed to achieve this outcome, and in a world of growing alternatives, mature, experienced, and credible people working on the front lines want to invest their time into getting things done.

Whether for an event of 50 or 50,000, we design and curate engaging programs that maximize the value for participants, partners, and coordinating organisations.

Speaking & Facilitation

We are experienced facilitators and speakers on a range of topics in the impact space. Our presentation style is intended to incite challenges and emotion, and inspire audiences to action.

As facilitators, we’re not neutral - we believe that when it comes to tackling the urgent problems of our time, taking no sides is taking the side of passivity. We bring the full force of our knowledge and expertise to any engagement, working alongside participants to achieve meaningful progress towards a stated outcome over 1-5 days.

Ecosystem Development

With extensive expertise as community organizers, movement builders, and social activists, we know what it takes to build, activate, and scale open ecosystems to catalyse systems change at scale.

Through community design, partnership activation, and alliance building, we believe that the best way to amplify collective knowledge and expertise towards a more equitable and sustainable future for all is by not just building an organisation, but a movement.  We practice what we preach - we work closely with a network of strategic partners to achieve greater impact, and leverage the power of our networks to support in your mission.
