EXPEDITIONS

The Expedition is what we call our fundamental consulting engagement. The ExPLORE℠ framework is the basis of every Expedition. Expeditions are the core of what we do. Expeditions help organizations discover, analyze, connect, fund and implement. We guide leaders on a systematic trek to test their speculative hypotheses or to evaluate the ROI of their 'out there' ideas. Using our powerful proprietary framework, ExPLORE℠, The Exploration Group methodically guides organizations into their unique and uncharted territories of opportunity. It is a five-leg journey that uses time-honored principles, historical planning models and the hindsight of great discoveries.
