Our latest research show that companies tend to program their strategy and budgets based on a company’s historical performance and market trends. While it is not a bad idea to build on historical analysis, it is becoming more and more critical to identify new and significant potential opportunities, not just marginal 5-10% squeeze on efficiency. Our conversations with business leaders indicate growing pressure to discover new market opportunities and compete successfully. As a result, these executives have to engage in active boundary spanning and bridging organization’s internal networks with external sources of information.

Blue Growth Academy (BGA) aims to provide the insights and tools to bridge that difficult gap between the traditional development of strategy based on continuous improvement and innovative approach based on emerging blue economies.
