The Carisma Insight Incubator is an independent and impact-driven research organisation with a mission to do research that matters and that contributes to shaping the future of management by influencing the way people manage their businesses.
When we say that “we do management research” we mean that, once identified the management issue we must tackle, we immerge ourselves with the problem, collect data on what we observe, and use a mixture of rigorous methodologies, pure creativity and un-common sense to come up with solutions that nobody else have arrived at before.
The problems we tackle and the questions we aim to answer are usually complex, novel and difficult (sometime impossible) to solve.
The insight we generate is always actionable, normally uncommon and quite certainly against “common sense”.
The clients we work with are usually practitioners with an intellectual curiosity. They generally don’t have the time, patience or analytical skills to tackle the problem but a) they know they have a problem (or, as we like to call it, an opportunity) and b) believe in the power and benefits of “management science”.
"Innovators break the rules […] Trust them”
