…means aiming for balance, between a strong vision and the realities of the field, in order to offer both simple and right solutions.
…means realizing that true changes do not come from the outside but rather are built from the inside, tapping into the vast flows of collective intelligence.
…means listening to those who produce the latter, while remaining attentive to those who are experiencing it, through a rigorous and kind supervision.
Principles of action
At alternatives, we are convinced that rigor and methodological creativity go hand in hand, that finesse of analysis does not preclude a strong synthesis, that because of the organizations’ increasing complexity aiming for simplicity becomes fundamental. And that sometimes being pragmatic also means taking the time to think in a different and original way.
Rigor and Creativity
Because general “ready for use” solutions are often inadequate for the individuals, we devise custom-made support platforms for every project, inspired by a continuous R&D and based on carefully tested, highly effective methodologies.
Finesse and Synthesis
Because the “big picture” is made of countless pixels, we integrate as many potential data as possible in our analysis in order to allow for a clear view of the challenges to emerge and to put the different issues into perspective.
Pragmatism and Originality
Because the shortest way between two points is not always a straight line, we do not hesitate to explore other universes in order to rethink practices in-depth while staying strongly committed to performance.
