Our Key Projects

Market Alignment

You know you need to make some changes, but you're not quite sure where to start. That's where we come in. 

Our industry leading market alignment projects take a holistic look at the business (or business line) - from Positioning and GTM to Product Strategy - to provide a outside in approach for new leadership, investors, or for companies looking for gaps, opportunities and differentiators.

The outcomes have led to clear strategic direction, increased revenue & customer retention, investments and multiple acquisitions. 

We offer modified approaches when working exlusively with the marketing, sales and product teams. 

Innovation Workshops

We help you find hidden gems within your company that can help you innovate and grow

Our workshops have helped dozens of vendors create cross-functional innovation often missed in the day to day. Helping identify new paths to success resulting in improved productivity, customer satisfaction, brand awareness, shorter sales cycles, and product strategy tweaks.

For companies post-acquisition, with new leadership or a shift in direction planned, these can support the changes and to build consensus and inclusion of employees.
