Digitalization is creating and destroying business models faster than ever. The world is following an exponential growth path of digital technologies. As the dynamics intensifies and the time to react gets shorter, the danger of being left behind by the competition is becoming bigger than ever before. Organizations need to adopt a start-up mindset. It is about balancing classical and new approaches, it means questioning traditional success factors: think big, test small, act fast; be open minded and agile!

This is why we created Terra Numerata, our inhouse open innovation initiative. Its mission is to combine the smartest brains of the new economy with Roland Berger's international expertise and extensive knowledge of end markets to offer our clients the chance to seize every opportunity and stay ahead of the game.
