Why a method?

Toon Hermans, a famous Dutch comedian, once said: "I can only start improvising if my text is entirely written".

By analogy, the Experiential Growth Method® provides a fully documented framework of your company as a scaffold on which you can start with your strategic business value realisation.

Business practice has always been divided between thinking and doing, emphasising one over the other. For us, business practice is a verb connecting both. Therefore, on the one hand, the Experiential Growth Method® offers you the correct thinking tools, while on the other hand,  Corporate-, Organisational futuring & Leading into the future focuses on your business practice and Business Dynamics Modeling on your business tooling.

The advantages of the Experiential Growth Method®

The Experiential Growth Method® gives you insight into what is invisible:

  • the relational system you experience within your enterprise.

And has one final goal:

  • creating a strategic advantage for you by co-creating meaningful relationships between your enterprise elements from 'Longt term thinking' to 'Commercial management'.

Empirical cycle based

Even in strategy, we must look for principle-based models that are empirically adequate. Which principles underlie which patterns? How can we act today so that we have the best chance that the practices of tomorrow are sustainable? In plain words: thinking AND doing combined. Find out more about theory & practice, thinking & doing, in empirical cycle.

What does the Experiential Growth Method® offer you?

The Experiential Growth Method® has three distinct steps:

  • First, patterns that arise from the interests you have.
    • We provide knowledge about the patterns in your enterprise, which are the result of your practices. We make relational thinking for you more accessible, to make clear to you what you cannot see but can experience, EGM® offers you insight into the structure – the scaffolding – on which your relational business system thrives.
  • Second, principles you organise your enterprise by from the values you hold.
    • We co-create the basic principles for growth: long term thinking, ethical decision making, innovative- and sustainable business model creation in the spirit of the Sustainable Development Goals.
  • Third, human based processes you create from the goals you have.


We zoom in on what your business can do better and facilitate your organisation's learning for what your organisation is not yet able to do.

We experience our world through the patterns we recognise.

The primary image of the Experiential Growth Method® is a scaffold showing you the relations between the elements of your enterprise. The Experiential Growth Method® defines 27 action fields for your enterprise and draws the relationship between them we experience as patterns. They are the building blocks for the implementation of your Corporate futuring, Organisational futuring and Leading into the future plans.

Principles: how to think about growth

EGM - How to Think - ENG.jpg

The most important thing is the next step.

When we act, the present situation confines us. We are convinced that we must work here and now with the future in mind. Therefore, we need expert knowledge, even if it is stationary in an evolving world and subject to progressive insight. At the same time, we need to tend to the relationships between ideas, people, teams, departments or worldviews and bridge across context.
