There is a pattern to success.

We are Pattern Detectors


Over many years of collaborating with clients on a wide range of strategic questions, we have noticed a pattern in the characteristics of our most successful engagements.

Contextual Understanding:

We contextualize your business question to ensure we focus on the right question.

Work Backwards:

We start with your definition of success, then work the engagement plan backwards.

Diverse Teams:

We encourage a team with different backgrounds and ways of thinking to provide perspective and help reframe our thinking.


We value both ideation and the quiet needed to make new connections.

Focused Collaboration:

We will get further together than either of us will thinking on our own.

Constructive Challenge:

We will employ fresh eyes and critique to ensure the logic is sound.

These patterns are foundational to our beliefs and inform our approach to our engagements.
