The Challenge

Our Solution

The Results


We facilitated workshops to help engineers think differently about complex data sets, what they might mean for the business, and how they could release additional benefit to stakeholders by sharing data among different suppliers.

We helped promote the company and prepare its team for a flagship international tradeshow, delivering a simple strategic and operational communications plan, with in-market activities.

Follow-up included building and managing an online innovation forum to share and promote thought-leadership. The client is now positioning itself as a go-to service provider helping suppliers share their data to bring new services to passengers.
