I generally work with trends, future scenarios, and business model innovations to identify and evaluate opportunities for innovation. I add value to innovation projects by working with differentiated mental models for understanding and managing external change and business impact. As a result, our projects oftentimes uncover otherwise hidden or overlooked innovation opportunities.
