What, Who & How

You can delay, but your competitors won’t...

Thriving in an uncertain and volatile world

In this VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous) world, organizations must acquire antifragility in order not only to withstand disruption but to improve from it.

Who we work with

Uncertainty and disruption effects every kind of organizations and people alike. We work with:

  • public and private organizations and companies
  • governance bodies
  • professional firms
  • entrepreneurs and investors

in helping them navigate challenges, disruptions, uncertainty and complexity with the aim to become competitive, to stay relevant today and tomorrow and provide constant increased value for their stakeholders.

The three (3) elements

Our approach is based on the presence of three (3) critical elements: (1) MENTALITY (2) METHOD and (3) TOOLS. Too many times we dive into a solution, its methods and tools without having understood and developed the necessary MINDSET that will permeate the learning, development, planning and execution of the solution. In order to accomplish that, we spend time educating clients and prospective clients so they can understand and develop ease around the prospective, introspective and inclusive methods as well as developing the supporting mental models.

How we work

We work from the important assumption that you are the expert on your business and our role or expertise is one of helping you elicit the future that is latent in your organization or business as a firm and also as a culture and a community of people.

Your future is not made from a cookie cutter approach, it is carved out. It is yours to detect and articulate. Your future is proprietary, it is your and yours only and our role is to provide the best methods and tools to help you find your preferred future.

Our methods

We approach the non-linearity of the future with linear methods built in such a way that they are individually independent but also interdependent and complementary as a whole. Here is a sampling of the steps generally taken for each of our offered methods:

Impact on performance

In one longitudinal study by René Rohrbeck and Menes Etingue Kum, it was found that “future-prepared” firms, defined as those with a corporate foresight practice, posted 33 percent higher profitability than the average company and 200 percent higher growth.

Furthermore, creating an engaging future and an equally engaging narrative about its future allows an organization to create thought leadership in its market and industry, and become more attractive to its customers, current and future employees, suppliers, bankers and investors. Finally, it creates a renewed business purpose.

The firm of the FUTURE

According to Bain.com, in order to be successful over the long term, organizations need an active Engine 1, which focuses on the core business, and an Engine 2, which innovates for the customers and capabilities of tomorrow.

This approach also refers to what is called the ambidextrous organization. The ambidextrous organization is a concept of organizational development invented by R. Duncan (Duncan, 1976). It indicates an organization’s ability to be aligned and efficient in its management of today’s business demands, as well as to adapt to changes in the external environment.


Our Transformative Program is a year long (or almost) collaboration and cooperation between AUGMNT and your team that combines both our Prospective and Introspective programs. It is aimed at helping your organization become future-based, enhance and create new capabilities.

This program is designed around a cadence to produce an observable step-change and advance in your organization’s relevancy and competitiveness.

The design plans for periodic (you get to choose) in-person or virtual workshops, brainstorming sessions, custom industry and cross-industry trends research, custom toolkits and keynote presentation for your organization.
