Strengthening long-term, evidence-based strategy
Project Hindsight is an independent consultancy which enables clients to leverage high-value corporate knowledge and high-quality data to help prevent expensive future mistakes. Through our ability to draw on a wide variety of professional, consultancy, and academic fields, we provide bespoke services tailored to the client’s requirements.
It was inspired by a visionary program undertaken by the U.S. military in the 1960s. The research spanned forty man-years, required thirteen teams of scientists, and examined an annual expenditure of $300-$400 million.
It revealed that the majority of useful defence expenditure was in technology development rather than basic research as had been assumed. This finding directly influenced the military’s future strategy.
A new, UK-based venture established in 2017, Project Hindsight seeks to produce similarly useful findings for our clients. Our proven sectors are defence and logistics and we are expanding into similarly capital-intensive sectors like energy, infrastructure, and healthcare.
We help clients build from hindsight into foresight.
