FINDING STARTUPS IS EASY. BUT MAKING THEM WORK INSIDE YOU IS HARD.
WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN 3 WAYS.
CREATE SUPPORT STRUCTURES TO BREAK THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
Your immune system might not be prepared to take in anything new from the outside. We need to create support structures that has autonomy and freedom but still guided by business units that need to be involved. Managing this is both an art and science. We jointly design and get buy-in if you don’t already have one.
HIGH CLOCK SPEED PILOTS, INSTEAD OF POWERPOINTS
Experimentation allows you to learn much faster in real life, with limited resource exposure or risk instead of making perfect powerpoints that never see the light of the day. We prioritise speed, small autonomous teams that work with clear traction metrics to prove or disprove the hypothesis. We coach, facilitate and make sure the timelines and metrics are met.
CREATE SCALING STRUCTURES AND KNOWLEDGE TRANSFER
Once the pilots produce results, provide runway, top management air cover and sponsorship to scale. We work with committees and steering groups to get the runway and create bespoke scaling programs for these pilots to fulfill their true potential. We also ensure that the knowledge stays within your organisation for you to repeat this again and again.
