Who we are

Specialists in scenarios, with extensive experience across diverse sectors.

The Mind of a Fox

​The analogy stretches back to the ancient Greek poet, Archilochus, who said:

 

"The fox knows many things, the hedgehog one big thing".

Oxford philosopher, Isaiah Berlin, used this distinction to articulate two types of thinkers: 

 

Foxes incorporate diverse sources of information and constantly update their assumptions in the face of new evidence.

 

Hedgehogs relate everything to one big idea.

 

In a rapidly changing, uncertain world, organisations need to think with the Mindofafox.
