A message from

Mark Tarchetti

 2023 has been an exceptional growth year for the agency. We have worked on brand and business transformations, technology/AI driven innovation and supported several M&A transactions.  We are very grateful to all our clients for their support.

3 essential disciplines to deal with continued disruption

It’s been over 30 years since the term VUCA was introduced by the US military. We hear it more than ever in business today, with a constant flow of event and macro disruption risks on people’s minds. 

If VUCA is the “new normal,” it begs the question, “How long do business plans last?” We are seeing the winners plan for uncertainty and work around it with three activity systems that optimize their response:

The last five years have seen cycles of wealth and consumption, with an ever-changing confidence and outlook. In challenging times, consumer understanding can be the first thing cut. Instead, you should double down. Look for every lead indicator of change in consumer behavior and determine what it means for your business. See and act on disruption.

Ever Closer to the Consumer


The best risk management is to build around the timeless fundamentals and constantly drive up the quality of execution. Under pressure, businesses often chase quantity instead. The rush to create new initiatives effectively bets big on unproven actions, often away from what is known to matter most.

Timeless Fundamentals


Prepare for disruption with prioritization. Assume budgets come and go. Know what you’ll give up first. Don’t salami slice budgets evenly, or worse, cut from the core, high performers just because they have more relative resources.

Agile Execution


So much of our business pivots on rapid interventions, helping teams adapt their strategy to the new conditions, rather than abandoning it. Make every move decisively but deliberately.
