We are researcher-consultants.
Our mission is to advance the frontier of knowledge
by developing the most advanced and proven tools
for leadership and innovation.
Great research does not happen in vitro.
It comes only by engaging in application projects
with pioneering leaders.
We act in a continuous circle:
we learn from the most advanced organizations →
build new theory →
confront our assumptions with other scholars →
develop and test unique tools →
apply them in our consulting projects →
learn and start the cycle again
thus constantly advancing our frameworks and tools.

We deliver workshops, educational programs, mentoring and coaching tailored to your specific needs. We start from your purpose and context, and design a path with the proper content, format (problem-driven, project-driven, case-based, peer learning, inspirational journeys), and timing (from ½ day speed up seminars, to intense workshops, up to long term programs alternating focused sessions with longitudinal coaching). Our pedagogy help you and your team to get inspired, experience unique tools in a real setting, learn, get immediate actionable results and grow.

... to "know where" in a changing landscape
We live in a moment of rapid transformation. Our permanent observatories help you to have a clear picture of the most important trends in innovation.
In this moment we are building two new observatories:
- Design Thinking for Business
- Leadership for Innovation (in cooperation with the Center for Creative Leadership)
Our observatories provide you with a map of the landscape, "who is doing what", what are the new trends and tools, what is the diffusion of new practices; in your industry and in other inspiring contexts. A special section is dedicated to the impact of the digital transformation on Design Thinking and Leadership.
