Forecasting the future means actively exploring it!

By exercising a scenario-based approach to strategy, we turn uncertainty into opportunity.

Explore possible futures to create impactful business decisions

The questions of possible futures are integral to successful business decisions and transitions in a world of continued uncertainty. We developed a new framework for restoring your teams’ desires and creative strengths with an alternative way of thinking about strategy consulting. We believe in applied imagination, which allows us to explore possible and probable futures in long and short-term visions.


Design Fiction

Rooted in the future but helping to act in the present, the design fiction process results in concrete actions taken to better adjust what companies do and how
they do it.

Through our Design Fiction Methodology, we expand your team’s vision and field of possibilities while cultivating their imagination at the heart of our practice. Dealing with uncertainty can feel overwhelming and confusing at times. However, in encouraging a mindset of curiosity about potential outcomes, we are expanding our field of observation. In contrast to other tools we used in the past, design fiction makes us forget our assumptions about what is more likely to happen so that we can be prepared for whatever will happen in the future.
