The members of the Applied Thinking team are committed to deliver complete, innovative solutions as part of every client engagement. We strive to learn about your business, not just answer specific questions. By challenging the status quo, we provide fresh perspectives on your issues.
We have seen the world from the perspective of the manufacturer as well as the consultant. Our experience covers a wide range of product categories, encompassing consumer package goods, durables, pharmaceuticals, and financial services. Our educational training is equally broad, drawing from the behavioral and natural sciences, as well as management.
However, what really sets the Applied Thinking team apart is a passion for solving tough problems in new ways. When coupled with our intense curiosity and an interest in your business, the efforts yield breakthrough thinking that ignites your marketing strategy and execution.
