Impulses have always been the start of something new. It is the impulse of the hammer that makes the nerve twitch and it is the impulse of the spoken word that makes people think. Our goal is to make you think about who is the beneficiary of your service and how to entail and incorporate the customer’s perspective in what you are doing on a daily business. We are focused on health-care only, but we are exellent at that. Like neurologists, we will examine the neuralgic spots in your organisation and your portfolio for you to be able to prepare yourself for the times ahead and secure sustainable business growth and responsible innovation.
Interdisciplinarity is the one driving force behind the recipy for success if it comes to innovation. Increasing diversity of thought by bringing people from different walks of life together who harbour a genuine and passionate interest in health-care, medicine and life-sciences but have diverse background is guaranteed to deliver results beyond expectations. Unleashing thought power and boosting imagination does magic in design thinking and putting yourself in your customer’s shoes. This process though does never come easy. There are only a few naturals out there. The rest of us in in a constant struggle to catch up with scientific change and keeping up to date especially in fields that do not belong to core competence areas. But exactly this leaving the comfort zone provides icing on the cake once you understand the multidimensonality of the challenges that you are about to tackle.
