What we do

We help large companies innovate faster, particularly in their digital transformation process, with a very hands-on, extremely practical, agile, no BS design sprint approach, focused on strategy and creativity.

We don’t pretend we can do anything. We don’t work on any project.What we can do is describe what we are passionate about, that puts that smile on our faces, and work with you to understand how well we match up! We’re focused on helping our customers, wether by running design sprints or figuring out how to implement a community

Why we do it

After years as consultants helping large companies solving fundamental business problems, we’ve taken our experience, unlearnt where necessary, and re-imagined how to go about realising the contribution we want to make. We’ve defined our process focused on efficiency and outcome, yet are committed to staying humble and forever learning.

We want to make sure we’re not wasting our time and that as clients, you are not wasting your money.

We are truly committed to delivering impeccable service, providing actual value.That’s why we hand-pick our clients and projects.
We only accept projects that we think we can actually provide outstanding value.We want our projects to put smiles on faces, yours and ours!
So we want to work with fundamentally good people :slightly_smiling_face:
