Systemic analysis
& strategic innovation

 

My work focuses on helping organisations develop strategies and solutions that help them navigate uncertain futures in complex environments.

I enjoy devising new solutions based on a thorough analysis of the complex environments an organisation operate in. To this end, I combine creative with analytical methods.

Systemic analysis is based on the conviction that a through understanding of  social, economic, political systems is needed in order to be able to identify levers for change. To run systemic analysis, I employ a range of methods taken from economics (mostly micro economics), other social sciences, and complex adaptive system theory.

 

Strategic innovation aims to create spaces and strategies that allow organisations to innovate continuously and purpusefully. To this effect, I use methods from user-centric design and lean prototyping while trying to use formats that make use the collective intelligence of an orgensiation. Strategic innovation also involves a systematic engagement with emerging trends. To render  possible futures tangible, I also use scenario planning and other strategic foresight methods.
