ENABLING FUTURES-DRIVEN MOMENTUM  

SHAPE THE FUTURE WITH US

We guide and support companies and organizations to identify upcoming challenges and future developments in their area of interest. We take companies on a journey of transformation into the world of tomorrow by actively shaping the future. 

THE FUTURE IS NOT PREDICTABLE
Hence, companies either shy away from dealing with the future, or pretend to control it based solely on numbers and financials. This leads to making inflexible and unfounded decisions, fostering a reactive environment, inaccurate investments and developments, erroneous personnel selection and ultimately creating a rigidity against change and the instability of their own future perspective. 
StART shaping the future with us
The future is not predictable, but it needs to be explored. We are a team of experts with hands-on and international experience in multiple areas. Therefore, we have the right insights and methodologies to not only help companies explore but also to actively shape the future of your industry. We are specialized in setting up projects that are flexible, future-driven and add new perspectives. Besides that, we just happen to offer great coaching, training, speeches and Foresight services. Wanna work with us?

How we work

USE CASES AND PROJECTS

We help organizations to apply Futures Thinking to any operational or strategic problems they have as it creates impactful long-term solutions that grow business opportunities, employee motivation, and customer satisfaction.

Futures Customer Journeys

We developed multiple customer journeys of 2030 to detect new brand touch points, and product features customers of various alternative futures would like.
The 3-day workshop contained a new way of combining existing sustainability scenarios with personas and customer journeys.

Client: A natural cosmetics company

Scenarios & Portfolio hacking

We've created scenarios for the automotive industry and used them to hack the existing product and service portfolio by matching and prioritizing each item with the diverse scenario worlds. As a result, other products raised in priority, whereas former high potentials lost their foundation.

Client: An automotive supplier

Night of the Futures

In cooperation with betahaus, we launched the event series the "Night of Futures," where we meet to discuss a different future topic every month. The workshop is a kick-off for an exploration phase, where we will define and discuss major future challenges for each topic with the goal to create cross-industry innovation projects that focus on pushing towards the desired solution through collaboration.

In a two-day practical workshop, we present foresight tools and methods that managers can use today to make complex and challenging decisions and successfully run their businesses in the future.
