GROWTH & BUSINESS STRATEGY
< 02 BUSINESS DESIGN / 02.01 GROWTH & BUSINESS STRATEGY
Precise action and unified effort are hallmarks of winning teams. We help businesses navigate evolving market conditions, challenges and opportunities, with all their gradients and juxtapositions, by stressing the importance of collaboration from the top down. It’s similar to the intense sport of Rowing which requires strength, stamina, and the transcendent ability of each rower to release their ego and intuitively synch with the crew so they move as one body. In that almost mystical oneness, they slice swiftly through the water toward their goal. Companies too grow exponentially when everyone aligns their capabilities and effort, honors the bond of shared trust, and acts precisely and decisively as one unified organization.
Typically, defining the multi-dimensional aspects of business – design, strategy, vision, values, culture, purpose, partners, products, channels, etc. – requires the collaborative work of the entire leadership team. This inclusive, unified approach to foundational decision-making ultimately drives and optimizes the business model internally (culture) and externally (globally).
Our program is crafted for managers, leaders and stakeholders who make strategic decisions, who want to inspire innovation and drive accelerated growth, and who care to better serve their internal teams, customers/clients, and communities.
Each leader’s role is unique, as is their desire to optimize business dimensionally, integrating bold and insightful ideas. Each phase of the innovation roadmap requires these individuals to respectively visualize, forecast, assume, explore, observe, empathize, analyze, define, experiment, test, connect, inspire and problem solve.

Neato Robotics planned to unveil its next generation of intelligent robot vacuums on a global stage at the 2020 IFA Press Conference in Berlin—a pinnacle moment for our company. We turned to Maspira Groupe to help create this important keynote presentation and help bring our story to life. The resulting product completely captured the story we wished to tell, but also caused us to look deeper at our brand and better define our core values and differentiators. Working under minimal direction and guidance, Maspira Groupe zeroed in on the design target and delivered excellence on a fast-paced turnaround. Thank you for helping us present our story to the world.
