First there is a trigger, an innovative idea, then a phase of exaggerated expectations, followed by disappointment before an idea becomes productive. But not every idea makes it to productivity.

Is it in line with other long-term developments that occur simultaneously in multiple organizations or in society? Innovation does not necessarily have to lead to disruption. But if it does, it displaces an existing market, industry or technology. It produces something new, something more efficient and useful. It is both destructive and creative. We help you recognize opportunities and avoid risks. Because you need to know where to invest.
