Vaxa develops unique and very differentiated perspectives on a wide range of management issues, technologies, strategies, markets, tactics, and emerging opportunities. We go to great lengths to see issues from very different angles and create viewpoints that challenge and stretch the prevailing wisdom and beliefs.
There are many ways that current and potential clients use Pick Our Brains, including but not limited to:
"WHAT AM I MISSING?" Like most thought leaders, you are always concerned you are missing important elements of an issue you are tasked with or you are looking to propose to the wider organization. You want to keep your initial ideas to yourself for now but need an external, independent perspective to help you to tighten up your case.
We try to get a sense where you are heading, understand your current thinking and where you might want to end up. The Vaxa team then puts it heads together and tap into our global network of experts. This expansive network helps us to help our clients to get pass drawing company and industry boundaries.
TESTING YOUR HYPOTHESES You have done your research, talked with several internal and external people whose opinions you respect. You feel relatively sure you have a well thought out idea. But, you know your idea will require significant commitment from your company, so you need to test your hypothesis a blind audience to help validate or invalidate your premise.
Vaxa often acts as a sound board to our clients' who are looking to create totally different value proposition—some of which may have been considered but rejected but whose timing is now right.
TIGHTENING UP PROJECT DEFINITIONS Projects often start off with fundamental and manageable goals. As more stakeholders get involved, the project scope creeps and takes on a life of its own. The project team want to satisfy all involved but need to ensure they align the project scope, deliverables, timing, and budget.
There are several ways in which we help client teams to solidify their project plans—e.g., pulling together the often competing and opposing needs into a single analytical framework, using a phased approach that gets the buy-in of all the stakeholders, and developing a water-tight data collection schema that shows the efficacy and reliability of the final outcomes.
