I help teams who face complex challenges build shared understanding, discover hidden potentials, commit to common goals – and translate them into viable business and product strategies.
I help companies explore their potential for change, learn new ways of working together, become more responsive – and go beyond buzzwords like Design Thinking or Agile.
I give talks and keynotes about change and responsiveness, company culture and product innovation, complexity and cognitive media – and I sometimes write about it, too.
