We live in extraordinary times. The accelerating development and application of digital technology is changing the way we live and work in an unprecedented way. The first phase of digitization was still lineair and predictable: mail got replaced by email, CD’s by streams, and stores by e-commerce. All direct replacements of exactly the same function.
However, the second-order ‘network-effects’ we see now, as a consequence of this digitization, are significantly less linear and predictable: ‘multi-sided platforms’, the ‘Internet of Things’ and ‘Big Data & Machine Learning’, have blurred boundaries between buyers & suppliers, digital & physical and men & machine, at an accelerating pace.
Our current economy is beyond digital: we are consuming, working and doing business in an ’exponential economy’
TimeLabz is a Business Design Agency. We help management teams of mid-market companies to create a clear vision in this exponential economy, and to design and kick-start the new ‘exponential business model’ with which they can be successful in it.
We do our business design projects in the form of an Exponential Business Sprint: a tailor-made program, in which we lead your management team in phases through our proven 'Look Broader, Think Further, Act Faster' method.
To create maximum and lasting impact for our customers, we work with a balanced mix
of consulting, co-creation and coaching.
From an outside-in perspective, we provide sharp insights and practical advice, based on custom research, and our extensive expertise and experience.
Both creating a clear vision of the future and designing a new exponential business model, we do in inspiring co-creation sessions with your team.
Also after our sprints, we will provide your management team with support in the implementation and kick-starting of your new exponential business model.
We are a small company, but with a large reach. We can achieve this by leveraging the expertise of our network, varying from data analysts to technology and implementation partners. When desired or necessary, we also involve these partners in the Exponential Business Sprint itself. In addition, we also get a lot of knowledge and insights from the various international networks that we are part of.
