Cultivate’s “issue decomposition,” crafted from our work with U.S. national security agencies and global think tanks, is a new form of analysis that enables you to understand what will influence the outcome to your biggest strategic questions.
For example, our workshops have supported key decisions by helping our clients understand the drivers behind the impact of the Ukraine/Russia war on EU energy security, future Iranian nuclear capabilities, and AI competitiveness among countries and private industry.
Clarity on how to think about the future around a critical issue.
A collaborative approach involving diverse perspectives vs. relying on a few individuals.
A shared world view, surfacing underlying assumptions that may conflict across stakeholders.
Increased rigor for existing analytic process.
A resulting agile framework for ongoing events, which can be adapted to changing circumstances.
Cultivate is currently focusing on working with organizations who have existing research groups and whose decisions and policies, or client's decisions and policies, are fundamentally impacted by global geopolitics. For example, national security related government agencies, think tanks, or research groups at investment banks and wealth management funds.
Workshops are designed to be small working sessions with the relevant leaders, experts, and analysts who are actively monitoring the strategic issue.
