Every enterprise is unique, and it is vital to understand the dreams and capabilities that drive success. Design thinking is at the heart of how we operate, and every engagement is co-created with your needs in mind.

We play with giants, unicorns, and sharks

We are experts at uncovering the next big idea that aligns with your capabilities and vision ahead. We are system-thinkers, innovators, managers, and leaders.

Transient pods are rogue orcas who travel in small, well-organized groups. These pods are spontaneous, cooperative and resourceful making them effective at achieving common goals. They are the inspiration behind what we do.

We seek to work with organizations who share our values

We learn every day and aspire to create intelligent, adaptable, and empathetic products + cultures. We operate as designers, ensuring the customer is at the centre of everything. As innovators, ensuring diversity, perspectives drive big ideas, and as operators ensuring everything aligns and scales with your organization. We live by our own rules, and this helps us both be successful.

These are principles by which we operate.

Innovation is fragile

Fostering innovation requires a leap of faith. You cannot control how innovation forms, but trust in the process and it will bear fruit. Trust that your guides will ensure we are not bound by the constraints our experience provides but reaching beyond those limits to shape new horizons. It is important not to set a destination, but rather let the journey reveal new opportunities. For tactically driven personalities who value speed and execution, this process will require them to suspend their impulses as we study your business at the macro level and explore unearthed areas.

Innovation occurs under the right conditions

It is difficult to experience what is just beyond our knowing until we create the conditions for that awareness and learning to be cultivated—observing the peripheral, recognizing the novelty of a moment and connecting the dots before they fade from the frame completely. Innovation does not occur overnight. It is a set of capabilities that are developed over time under the right conditions. We will work with your teams to improve their comfort with ambiguity, decision making, system-thinking, and adaptable learning and 

Innovation is driven through curiosity & learning 

Creative process must be left to unfold with curiosity leading the way, building on big ideas. This creates the space and inspiration that will define the unfolding story of your organization. To understand what is next, we will need a shared understanding of the opportunities, and an iterative approach to improvement. We will dive deep into your organization’s systems.We will understand any gaps between where you are and where you would like to be. We affirm your purpose and establish a baseline of your brand, culture, market relevance, and capabilities.

Innovation requires partners, not suppliers

Suppliers generate output and deliverables; partners co-create value and work towards business outcomes and customer value. As part of every partnership, we conduct our own research to understand the problem space and work with team leaders to generate big ideas and carve a path forward.
