Geopolitical Analysis. Business Intelligence.
Today’s operational environments are complex. They present a mix of hybrid strategies and disparate technological threats. Success relies on the ability to interpret the influences of globally interconnected local environments while simultaneously identifying critical gaps in operational design and technology. This requires the ability to develop complex cultural models with critical path analysis that ensure optimized performance across the entire mission plan.
From identifying emerging market opportunities and the hidden risks emanating from cultural trends and influences to developing strategies for future R&D, our clients hire us to provide the strategic and operational insight they demand in order to energize innovation, optimize performance and maximize competitive advantage.
Dynamic, not static.
Organizations today function in an increasingly chaotic atmosphere dominated by globalization, uncertainty and rapidly changing technology. We now live in an age where the digitally integrated individual can impact strategic designs. It is an environment where local is simultaneously global.
More research and development and faster product cycles are not necessarily better. The ability to identify opportunity will rest more and more on our ability to understand, influence, or exercise control within both the human and technological domains we operate in. This is the crossroads of the technological, physical, cultural and socio-economic environments that influence innovation.
Our lives our increasingly integrated with technology. We can no longer separate people and environments from the technology they use and are impacted by. Yet the diffusion of technology has also given voice to social and cultural differences that define us, increasing the complexity of the environments we operate within. Strategic risk is now a part of every aspect of operations.
