What We Do

Planning Model for a clear vision for economic growth.

TIP Planning Model

Our three-phase Theory Into Practice planning model underlies every engagement.

  • The initial Discovery phase ensures that we clarify the project objectives and compile the necessary information to understand the context.
  • The exploration of big ideas and possibilities during the Opportunity phase considers the project from multiple perspectives.
  • The Implementation phase ensures we provide actionable and specific steps for moving forward.
