One step ahead, always!

Strategic and organisational consultancy in companies, experiential training
and leadership coaching.


In today's international and digital environment, often characterised by the words Speed, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity and summarised in the acronym VUCA, companies are increasingly feeling the pressure of competitors and friction in their organisation. The watchwords are Continuous Innovation, i.e. developing the ability to continuously adapt products, processes and the organisation to new circumstances.

Continuous innovation starts with continuously listening to customers and new markets and translating these demands into new products and services. This requires the organisation and leadership to behave like a start-up, adopting a more fluid organisational structure, often based on multidisciplinary teams, which allows this continuous adaptation. Finally, it requires the pursuit of operational excellence, or rather the continuous discovery of waste and defects in its processes and the ability to resolve them quickly or, better still, prevent them.
