of Chief Strategy Officers say new technologies will rapidly change their company’s industry
Turning corporations into hyperscale startups. Employees into owners.
We coach, train and mentor teams to build and scale innovations faster using the latest business management methods and lean innovation techniques. We believe in a scientific approach to innovation, where gut-feel and HIPPOs (highest paid person’s opinions) are replaced with carefully planned experimentation. The result is reaching product-market fit in the shortest possible time while preventing wasteful expenditure associated with executing unvalidated business cases.
Most companies are not prepared
of companies have completed true digital transformation programs
of companies have no programs in place to build the skills of the future
“Any company designed for success in the 20th century… is doomed to failure in the 21st.”
– David Rose

A new insurance company wanted to test value added services to boost their growth. We ran a 5-day growth hacking sprint to test their go-to-market strategy and messaging strategy.

Pay-TV provider tests new consumer app.
Worked with a multinational media house and Pay-TV provider to prototype and test a new consumer app in 4 days. Collected market data and compiled a business case in record time.
Timeline from idea to approved business case was condensed down from an average of 6 months to 18 days. A pilot was then initiated to test the Business Model.
“Every project should kick-off with a Design Sprint. This would normally have taken months!”
Ran a 4-day Design Sprint to launch a new website with a call to action, ran a Facebook campaign and measured the conversion rate and cost of acquisition while iterating on the pricing and product features.
We collected real market data which was used to validate the business model. Initially the product had 7 different price points but 80% of customers went for only 3 of the offers, so the other 4 was dropped.
“We saved tens of millions of Rands!”
