Real innovation requires a real innovator... 
Technology, without sound, informed management is, at best, a fascinating plaything. Management, without modern technology, cannot hope to compete. Together, they can be an awesome force. They can power the engine that is both inspired by and enables innovation, the essential ingredient that lets us improve on the status quo. 

Albert Camus once said, "You cannot create experience. You must undergo it." The better we understand human learning, the more we come to acknowledge that the best skills, by far, result from repeated and varied experience. This applies to consulting and information technology as much as it does to sports, martial arts and music. Jonathan Strong has extraordinarily broad and deep experience and a reputation as a serial innovator, leveraging this combination to help organizations reinvent their operations, improve, create new products and services, excel, compete and win.

- Michael Kaushansky, EVP, Chief Analytics Officer at Havas Media
