Guiding
insights

Our Purpose-led Business Modeling™ methodology is based on 12 years of research on the behavior of ultra-performing organizations. Our senior partner Eric Bartels has written three non-fiction books and manuals about this matter. Based on that research, we offer you four guiding insights that drive our proposition:

Purpose-led ultra-performers are inner why driven
The purpose of average to well-performing companies is an extrinsic why: make money. The purpose of great to fantastic-performing companies is a deep, vibrant intrinsic why – or inner why as we call it – to improve the world with their products and services.
Purpose-led ultra-performers are system driven
Average to well-performing companies operate symptomatically, great to fantastically-performing companies operate systemically. They start with their inner why driving their strategy and turn that strategy into a tactical planning leading to execution.
Purpose-led ultra-performers are simplicity driven
Average to well-performing companies have a tendency to make things more complex; the natural tendency of great to fantastically-performing companies is to make things as simple as possible but not simpler.
Purpose-led ultra-performers are nonconventional
Average to well-performing companies stay within existing conventions, great to fantastically-performing companies create new conventions, as they are not bound by traditional ways or beliefs. They are open-minded, progressive, radical and unorthodox. Average to well-performing companies harvest what is there, great to fantastically-performing companies sow what is not.

Our research
04/

Our
research

Since 2004, our research & development team has been studying the success behavior of so-called ultra-performers: companies that create exponentially more shareholder value than any other competitor. Up to 1500 (!) times more value per product, for example. Led by one of our partners, system consultant and author Eric Bartels, they have interviewed 500 CEO's and examined 21 companies from the inside. Their research shows that all these companies are purpose-driven and operate systemically.

Our philosophy, as well as our approach, is based on these findings. Partner Eric Bartels writes about their findings in his books, which are published by renowned publishers.
