Organizations need to systematically track competitive dynamics, disruptive technologies, and emerging organizational structures in order to plan potential transformation paths.
The WAVE Lab's response is based on our collective experiences as management consultants and industry specialists. It is a T-shaped problem solving approach that helps uncover insights and deliver structured solutions in a collaborative manner: we combine functional expertise (such as innovation management, strategy, value engineering, etc.), with in-depth knowledge and skills specific to select industries.
Overall, the WAVE Lab and its partner network are involved in international projects (research, consulting), creating leading-edge intellectual property in select management disciplines (such as service science, value engineering, etc.), and applying uncovered insights to organizations in select industries: Culture & Travel; Energy & Environment; and Government.
