Before implementing an innovation strategy, the organization needs to diagnose its present situation. Like Alice in Wonderland, the organization must peer through the looking glass.

Prior to performing any work, we first analyze the present environment, including an assessment interpretation. Analytics provides the information collected; diagnostics provides the interpretation and follow-through.
