HOW
HOW?
Our approach is to build on ideas.

Not, as with a marketing agency or business consultancy, on group-think, but rather on the rich set of possible fixes that come from each of our members' unique response to the challenge.

We start by listening.

Once we've got a sense of the problem and and what resources are available - research, budget, internal and external partners, time frame - we think.

Then we work through the resulting words, sketches, models and plans with you to identify a potential route to progress.

TO MAKE
THE IDEA WORK
TO MAKE THE IDEA WORK
In our experience, the profit-at-any-cost approach to problem solving creates silos of self-interest and distrust that make effective collaboration difficult.

To make working with us easy, we offer a number of ways for you to benefit from our thinking:

As a stand-alone resource, we can develop and implement the ideas for you.

We can help you, or an existing partner, do some, or all of it; work with whoever had the idea or with a team from the membership.

Use our ideas to fuel your own; We set aside two weeks to work through a brief. But, if you can wait a little longer for our thoughts, develop and implement them yourself and agree to credit us as originators, there’s no charge.
