From hindsight to foresight
Project Hindsight is a strategy consultancy which helps clients leverage their past to enhance their future.
It was inspired by a visionary program undertaken by the U.S. military in the 1960s. Its retrospective research spanned forty man-years, required thirteen teams of scientists, and examined an annual expenditure of $300-$400 million.
This study 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 U.S. military’s future strategy.
A UK-based venture, Project Hindsight seeks to produce similarly useful findings for our clients.
