Amazon recently dropped 2 bombshells: Its $13.7B acquisition of Whole Foods and the $9B offer for Slack. They came at a welcome time for us, because we were in the middle of creating this new Amazon case.
In all of our research and Trendwatching, Amazon is one of the most fascinating organisations we have ever seen. It employs unique strategies according to highly regarded philosophies, which has lead it to unprecedented success.
We believe that every organisation, large or small, has much to learn from Amazon. If you’re in any kind of commerce or logistics, you absolutely must pay attention to Amazon. In The Amazon Case we’ll explain you why they are winning and how they are doing it.
The finance sector and specifically banks, have been under a lot of pressure over the past years. Alongside the market challenges such as low interest rates, we’re seeing hundreds of new Fintech challengers emerge with over $10 Billion collective funding per year.
These challenges are forcing banks to make tough strategic decisions. At the start of 2016, we worked together with Belfius PCB to help them do that.
The result of the project was:
A clear view on how the future of Public, Social and Corporate Banking may develop.
A strategy to play a strong role in that future.
A list of concrete projects to start working towards it.
Soon after we returned to guide Belfius PCB in the development of these business plans, to help them turn these into speedboats alongside the corporate mothership.
We sat down with Dirk Gyselinck, member of the management committee, to talk about the process and the challenges of transformation.
De Persgroep was one of our first Digital Transformation clients, as media was one of the first sectors to feel the power of digital disruption.
We helped De Persgroep with their transformation strategy and sat down with CEO Koen Verwee to talk about the changing media landscape, their transformation journey and most importantly, their realisations.
Check out the full interview below:

Around November 2015, we worked together with CapitalAtWork, an Asset Manager, to help them with their future vision and Digital Transformation. Directly after our collaboration, Claude Eyschen was appointed as CDO to take ownership of the digital agenda.
Ever since we’ve done various in-house presentations for CapitalAtWork about the changing world of finance and the blockchain, to help them keep track of how the financial sector is evolving so they can take the right actions.
We sat down with Claude and General Manager Maarten Rooijakkers, to talk about the transformation of CapitalAtWork so far.

In 2015, Volvo Trucks Group Belux asked us to guide them in their Digital Transformation. We helped them create their future vision, strategy and a concrete roadmap of things they could start doing to transform their organisation. As a follow up to that we’re currently helping them with Trendwatching and their Digital Transformation Governance.
With transformation come a lot of challenges, so we sat down with Peter Himpe, Vice President at Volvo Trucks Group Belux, to talk about their Digital Transformation process.
