HOW WE WORK
We are researcher-consultants.
Our mission is to advance the frontier of knowledge by developing the most advanced and proven tools for leadership, design and innovation. How?
Great research does not happen in vitro.
It comes only by engaging in application projects with pioneering leaders. We act in a continuous circle: we learn from the most advanced organizations → build new theory →confront our assumptions with other scholars → develop and test unique tools → apply them in our consulting projects → learn and start the cycle againthus constantly advancing our frameworks and tools.
First collaboration with Harvard Business School, with Marco Iansiti and Alan MacCormack and their pioneering study on Innovation processes on Internet Time (Then published on Management Science in 2001).
The research “Italian Design System”, in cooperation with the School of Design, unlocks the secrets of how Italian firms leverage design for business. It is awarded the Compasso d’Oro, the most prestigious design award in Italy.
Our studies on flexible innovation processes are awarded the Best Paper Award for 2 consecutive years at the Innovation and Product Development Conference of the European Institute for Advanced Studies in Management (EIASM).
To address the growing demand for graduates with both advanced skills in Design and Management, we launch a Double MSc Degree, first of its kind, where students attend both schools, without compromising on any subject.
MIT Press publishes Overcrowded, which tells the stories from our 10 years of collaborative projects with global corporations, on how to create meaningful experiences, that people love, in our world overcrowded by ideas.
