Explore an ecosystem deeply to reveal precision value-creation opportunities

Deeply explore a carefully framed ecosystem to learn, reveal and measure new systemic value-creation, growth, adaptation and transformation opportunities.


  • Map practices, actors and resources in a framed ecosystem

  • Reveal the diversity of capabilities, capacities, experiences, resources and outcomes amongst different ecosystem actors

  • Understand the nature, dynamics, status and evolution of ecosystem practices, including the limits, operationalisation and efficacy of emergent paradigms

  • Identify key factors, constraints and conflicts that are preventing ecosystem adaptation and the ability to address opportunities

  • Capture novel value-creation opportunities, directions and possibilities free of solutions and technology-bias

  • Measure and prioritise ecosystem actor unmet needs and capability gaps

  • Build a new view of an ecosystem for strategy, technology, service and product design and innovation

  • Theme opportunities into Value Frames – evidenced spaces for ongoing value discovery and creation


  • Overcome the tendency to think of all problems as wicked and too complex to analyse and understand, leading to unnecessary and ineffective experimentation and iteration

  • Deep-dive into an ecosystem to capture new knowledge and insight free of solutions and other bias

  • Reveal the dynamics of an ecosystem, and current and possible drivers of emergence and value

  • Identify target opportunities with confidence and form advanced frames of ecosystem strategy, learning and action

  • Discover the main barriers to change, evolution and transformation in an ecosystem

Who for?

Companies and organisations seeking to understand a potential or existing ecosystem deeply, and identify multiple new evidenced opportunities to grow, adapt and transform effectively with positive impact. Ecosystem Explore is our full ecosystem analysis programme requiring internal commitment and consensus towards an ecosystem view. It is suitable for larger organisations and requires moderate-high budget.


  • 45 to 90+ day custom-designed ecosystem exploration programme depending on scope

  • Frequent interim deliverables to engage with learning and shape programme direction
