Our organizational-design methodology helps craft nimble and agile public authorities – better equipped to anticipate and overcome their most pressing challenges and create a future full of possibility.

Firm Overview

The world is moving faster than ever. The rules of the game are constantly shifting. People, organizations and societies are embracing change at pace and being reshaped by new technologies, deeper connectivity and the convergence of ideas and industries. And convergence isn’t just disrupting existing systems and markets – it’s creating entirely new ones, representing challenge and opportunity in equal measure. Organisations are increasingly dealing with opposing forces which test their resolve. Performance today or innovation for tomorrow? Competition or collaboration? Investment in people or technology? Only those who can anticipate change, innovate and adapt will thrive and move ahead. Arthur D. Little links people, technology and strategy to help clients balance these opposing forces, overcome today’s biggest challenges and seize tomorrow’s most promising opportunities. This is the difference they make. As people, organizations and societies embrace change at pace, its leaders must anticipate, innovate and transform ever faster. We help our clients overcome today’s most pressing challenges and seize tomorrow’s most promising opportunities. With a powerful blend of creative thinking and scientific rigor Arthur D. Little links people, technology and strategy to find original and pragmatic ways to accelerate performance, innovate through convergence and digital, and make a positive impact on the world.
