We are an artisanal strategy company.
We help businesses journey
from where they are
to where they want to be.

WE BELIEVE

  • Strategy must maximize the potential of businesses

    The purpose of strategy is to find the simplest and most direct way of expanding your business. And we are committed to delivering simple actionable solutions that do just that.

  • Strategy cannot be compartmentalized

    Our approach, therefore, is holistic. We call it strategy 360; where the consumer journey is just as important as the brand story, each playing its part in ensuring that the experience is exactly as it was intended to be.

  • Businesses need to keep their brand at the core to win consumers over

    The most successful businesses keep their brand at the heart of all their operations - from distribution, pricing, and product design to how their salespeople interact with customers. Because consumers don’t just buy a product they buy into a brand and what it stands for.

  • Brands are
    living entities

    Brands react to the environment - not just the business environment but the social and cultural environment as well. They must, therefore, track the environment and adapt and innovate with the times to thrive.

  • There is a unique path for each brand

    A path that will help realize its ambitions. We are here to partner with you in finding and charting that unique path.

PROCESS

We believe in a simple, back-to-the-basics way of working because the simplest of questions often lead to the most revealing answers.

  • akam Looking within

    We begin each of our projects by spending considerable time interacting with different teams within the client’s organization. This ensures that we understand different aspects of the business

  • puram Looking outside

    With a deep understanding of how the business works, we step out to deep dive into three external aspects – the category, the consumer and the culture that impacts the business. We observe and engage with customers through rich qualitative research.

  • sat-sangam Uniting with the truth

    A culmination of all our learnings and insights leading to a simple, easy to execute action plan for the brand - a brand playbook that can guide the brand towards its desired destination.
