We unlock value with our clients by realising solutions and not just providing insights.
The term 'unlocking value' has a specific meaning at Genesis. It refers to our aspiration to map out a path to value for our clients and for society that was not apparent prior to our work. The value opportunity unlocked in this way must be measurable, and the solution given needs to comprehensively address all the challenges related to realising that value. Every project at Genesis is assessed according to this standard.
The foundation of our distinctive delivery are the technical skills and deep sector knowledge we have developed through our work in the area between the market and the state.
When a project unlocks value, we celebrate it. It remains our goal in all our focus areas. Here are some instances where we believe our work has unlocked value.
Unlocking Value in 2020
Every year Genesis runs a competition called Unlocking Value where the staff gets to show case some of our best work over the previous 18 months. These are some of the winners in 2020.
