Changes and issues often affect more parties than those that are initially recognized. As such, they should be viewed with the interests of all shareholders. Global Advantage Consulting identifies and analyzes key public, private, not for profit, academic institutions and resources in an environment, then transforms this data into simple, comprehensible visuals depicting the relations between stakeholders, flows of people, money, information, and materials in the environment through our unique ecosystem mapping technique. This allows for a deeper understanding of environments ensuring that decisions and strategic plans can be made with all effects and consequences in clear view. We can provide consulting and coaching to help you understand the depth of information and how to use it in advancing towards your goals.
Depending on client needs, we can analyze an ecosystem at four different levels of granularity, including:
National Innovation Systems
Examples include: Canada, Germany, Japan, Israel, China, Brazil, India, U.S.
Regional/Municipal Innovation Systems
Examples include: Kitchener-Waterloo, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto, New Brunswick, Alberta
