ABOUT

‘We got
trapped in
cost cutting and
continuous improvement.

It usually starts with a visionaire who sees a need or an opportunity in the market. And taps on it! Gets other enthusiasts on board, and together they build expertise, design and launch an offer that people want. Badly. So they get courage.

In this time, the world outside becomes a very different place. Competitors appear from unexpected places. Market behavior is changing. New technologies are promising. Customers seem to know more than they do. But how and who to make sense of all these? It feels too late to catch up. But maybe is not too late to make a leap frog.

Do you think the industry changes and your company not?

Identification of strategic early signs of change is good news for those whose role is maintaining competitive advantage for the organization.The failure is in lack of action, and if  you were a decision maker, wouldn’t you like to have an early warning capability available?

Let’s talk about our Strategic Early Signs Alert subscription!
