HOW WE WORK
AUGMNT uses a unique augmented process that combines strategic foresight with systems thinking, integration design, *maturity models* and a generic strategy process** to help organizations move beyond disrupting and emerging challenges by anticipating the future so they can benefit from it. The use of robust frameworks and methods provides a level of stability, certainty and reliance in an ortherwise unstable and uncertain world.
* Maturity model : a maturity model is (wikipedia) a set of structured levels that describe how well the behaviors, practices and processes of an organization can reliably and sustainably produce required outcomes.
** Generic strategy process : a generic process is a process that can be use indiferently in any number of application and situation. The generic strategy process we refer to is the one articulated by Joseph Voros as influenced by Henry Mintzberg’s 3 stages of (1) strategic thinking (2) strategic development and (3) strategic planning.
The 3 Horizons
The 3 Horizons (McKinsey, Sharpe) model can be used as a maturity model representing the full development of an organization and a framework that can be uses to practice foresight and clearly visualize and plan how this future can be designed into the present and what are the features, imperative and optional activities for each horizon involved, horizons 1,2 and 3.
In order to respond to the specific needs of organizations, all our solutions are essentially “divisible” and customizable and can be offered under different content and delivery methods.
