Anekanta® Consulting : Research and Horizon Scanning

Horizon Scanning Technology and Strategy

Why wait and suffer the consequences of inaction? Actively observe, decide and act with agility. The cheetah is a symbol of agility whose success is rooted in speed and intelligence.

Missing the weight and power of its cousins; it compensates through incredible timing and intelligence, outwitting its target, wrong-footing it then suffocating it. The macabre reality of the natural world. The cheetah scans the horizon for threats, risks and opportunities and then acts fast using its strengths to mitigate or exploit them.

We help you to learn the evolving landscape for competive advantage

Using a range of techniques including primary and secondary research, due diligence and strategic analysis. We review the market, current and proposed legislation, impact of mega trends and assess the current position.

We review and evaluate innovations in specialised sectors: defence and security, video surveillance, transportation, CNI/smart cities and manufacturing.
