We specialise in strategy for startups and big organisations that need to act like startups.
Our approach to strategy is best suited to times of great uncertainty and change. We use ethnographic contextual research to help you see more clearly, then work with you to generate new options with strong business models. Finally, we'll help you articulate a clear, compelling story to get your staff and stakeholders on the same page.
Want to reimagine an existing service or reach out to a new group of customers? We will work with you to rapidly understand and visualise the customer journey of your service and identify opportunities for innovation.
Want to develop a new service from scratch? We'll work with you to start with your customers and create an offering that's designed around their needs.
Want to build your team's innovation capability? We can run an introductory workshop on human-centred design or mentor your team through a learning-by-doing incubation process over three months.
Our team has run innovation training for thousands of professionals across Australia.
You know the people. The ones who have stuck around through thick and thin. You’d do anything for them, as they would for you. They’re part of what makes life worth living.
Or maybe you don’t. All of us have fewer of these people than we did twenty years ago, and one in four of us don’t have any close connections at all.
We’ve changed as a society. We move further and work more. We’re more connected through new technologies, but we’re forming weaker links.
Kitestring is our flagship project that’s just finished a year of research with people aged from 25 to 95. We sought to understand what it takes to form close friendships in the modern world. Read our report and learn more at www.kitestring.org.
Connection to nature
South Australians are more connected to nature than most other people in the world. Surrounded by hills and sea, over 90% of South Australians visit a state or national park each year.
But many features of the modern wold make it difficult for us to stay close to nature in our everyday lives.
We're working with people and organisations across South Australia to create more ways to connect with nature on a daily basis.
By making this work visible and widespread, we also aim to strengthen the statewide narrative around the intrinsic value of nature.
Clients and collaborators
We don't believe in going off to do a consultancy piece that results in a report. Every project is a collaboration with our clients to try and achieve something ambitious and creative. Our team has worked with businesses, government, social enterprises, non-profits, and philanthropics across Australia.
