Our focus:​

...with projects & campaigns

through design thinking as the mechanism for change-making, we work to create a ground swell of impact with entities and communities that see themselves as part of a wider grid-work of transformation  

...with informed empathy and deepened insight as the glue. 

level 1: build collective empathy & relevance

evaluate and equip teams as self-organising units – with agility and cohesion of focusing on: ‘role’ - as a sense of self; ‘alignment’ – for team purpose; ‘impact’ – collective clarity on effectiveness.


level 2: plan for impact
​envisage and construct action & capacity with a view to making an impact; frame the impact you intend to create; paint your story of impact & purpose.


level 3: assess impact         
gauge and measure the shifts against the impact you intended to create (break down impact into bite sizes); track the story of impact; repeatedly revisit the pathway of impact.


level 4: active induction 
prepare and orient new members of the collective so that people identify with ‘the purpose’ assimilate ‘their role’ become part of the ‘common purpose’.
