lean strategy

We at altershape believe established organisations have a wealth of people and capabilities to tap into when shaping their future. We help you leverage that potential.

Our three step approach of lean strategy execution combines proven analysis and architecture methods with lean startup and innovation techniques in a pragmatic way, adapted to your organisation.

  1. Pin down goals
    Find out what you can achieve with your ideas
  2. Expose enablers
    Discover what will make these ideas work
  3. Identify, prioritise and validate hypotheses
    Implement and validate in short iterations, using your customer's feedback to guide you

This way, we help you leverage your best resources so you can discover the best ideas and make them happen.

Innovation Canvas — Facilitating Corporate Innovation

Innovation is hard.

Ideas are cheap and plentiful, but execution often falls short and few ideas lead to valuable results within reasonable time and budget. The innovation canvas supports you in the first stages of innovation.

  • Get your idea out of your head and on paper
  • Get feedback, refine and improve
  • Identify your idea's key assumptions
  • Determine the next steps and take action

Get started: get the free Innovation Canvas download below.

You can also attend a public event or organise an in-house workshop.

Or, schedule a 30 minute one on one with me, free (!), to discuss your innovation challenges.

see me speak

Very engaging & definitely introduced a new way of thinking of MVP.
Building Business Capability 2022 workshop participant
I really appreciate the fact Filip gave lots of examples from his past experience on projects. All the tips he gave on what can be done to overcome change resistance are practical. Too often, webinars are only theoretical. Thank you, Filip!
Diane Kamerling, Project Manager, Scrum Master & Business Analyst at Devoteam — webinar "How BA can make change stick"
Filip's talk offered a mirror of what our job could be but not yet is.
Tom Van de Velde, Team Lead Business Analysis — inspirational talk at Partena
This was my favourite talk of the day. Very clear, concise ways of improving the strategy - execution gap with a fun activity to break it up. A very engaging speaker who clearly knew what he was talking about.
Business Analysis Conference Europe 2019 attendee
Great session to hold at the end of day. Engaging, fun. You had to pay attention!
Building Business Capability 2022 attendee
Thank you for your workshop yesterday. The ideas were new to me, and what stood out is how much differently you think about business analysis. By thinking more broadly, it allows me to be more versatile and adapt to a wider range of situations.
Jake R., Business Analyst — Business Analyst World Chicago 2022
Brilliant last conference session 'Perfect your Pitch through Ritual Dissent'. Loads of energy and useful discussion in our group and learnt a new technique.
Christina Lovelock, BA Practice Lead — Business Analysis Conference Europe 2018
Thank you so much, Filip, for developing such a thought-provoking, forward-looking and intelligent approach. It seems to blend realism, presence, innovation and common sense into a fresh and viable road forwards.
Nefra — Business Analysis Summit 2019 on innovation, organised by Penny Pullan
Filip thought along strongly with the specific cases of our business.
Natalie Picard, Project Manager — in-house innovation workshop at Farmad
This talk was well constructed and had some great key points. The examples were salient and easy to embrace. Mr. Hendrickx shared a very simple, compelling process with templates that I will be able to take back and share with my team.
