African Proverb “…go fast….”

“If you want to go fast – go alone. If you want to go far – go together.”

Applied to cities:
There is a need to go FAST and TOGETHER. The challenges of growing urbanization require action. And the complexity of the challenges thrive for holistic solutions in a collaborative way!

Collaboration needs to be enabled amongst city, industry and citizens and cut across national, public-private and sector silos. This approach results in new forms of organizations within stakeholders as well as redefines their role towards other companies and customers.

The traditional product solution will make way for the de- sign of “satisfaction”. Innovation no longer happens on product level, but in ways existing technology is systemized. As a result traditional product suppliers loose rele- vance in their former established markets. In order to survive they have to look how to deal with the new business environment “City”. Especially as new entrants with focus on holistic solutions, often based on data services and project management, turn into disruptive forces.
