“The pace of change is unrelenting in today’s world. Disruption is constant, and companies need to continually re-invent themselves. The work we are doing is super-challenging due to the level of uncertainty involved.” Timo Tiainen

“We look at what’s changing, behavioral shifts, where the start-ups are buzzing, and then we try to interpret what it all means. We form a hypothesis and test it. And if we’re wrong, that’s fine, because we learn valuable lessons.” Etti Seppä
