Business plans and strategy

We help professional societies, non-profits, and  research consortia develop new business models or transform existing ones. Through the eTRIKS network we can also help you preserve your data.

 Our Synergy Think Tank approach

Collaboration canvasWe focus on finding synergies between different perspectives. The standard approach is to focus on differences and then see if a compromise can be reached. Compromise is unsatisfying and often means you end up with lose/lose or win/lose.

Our program managers and business developers gather input from individuals and then bring them together in a structured and facilitated discussion. We use a variety of tools such as a ‘collaboration canvas’ which is derived from the well known business model canvas. This helps assure the identification of win/win solutions and concrete actions to implement them.

For meaningful patient involvement we use a discussion game to facilitate the process of bringing more disparate perspectives together. For working groups a process of continual communication is employed with an emphasis on using group genius to resolve issues that are hindering progress.

Our thought leadership


About U-BIOPRED: “Furthermore, this ideological project has seemingly succeeded where so many others have failed, challenging the culture of how science is done by systematically collecting and analysing data in a successful pan-European collaboration involving academia, industry, and patients.” Lancet Respiratory Medicine

Scott’s Consulting company has great potential for growth and I warmly recommend it to anyone who needs support to put together and live large and complex EU grants. Ratko Djukanovic

“Always enjoy your blogs. There is no doubt that your company ran UBIOPRED in an excellent way.  The communication by regular TCs and face to face meetings which included any patient on the PIP platform who could attend all helped too.” Amanda Roberts

Scott provided strategic input for the development of our proposal in a very timely manner. His insight into structuring collaborative projects, in particular the IMI, proved to be invaluable to our bid. Professor Jamie Timmons, PhD
