Governments need to prepare for the post-industrial era. The operating environment is changing, which means old ways of doing are not creating the same results as before. States and governments can lead the societal transformation in the 21st century. By adopting a human-centred approach, working towards commonly shared goals and utilizing experiments, the public administration can do radical and fair societal transformations.


We help public governance improve its policy and legislative processes, accelerate its innovation development and expand collaboration with new partners outside traditional government. We have a unique history of conducting future-conscious policy experiments and co-creation processes. In the context of public governance, this means more participation. They also help reduce risks and provide knowledge for decision-making.
