Cognition is an innovation and strategy consultancy working with organisations to unlock the potential of digital, cognitive, and mobile solutions as part of a digital transformation strategy.
We think in systems and metaphor, create in experiences and technology, and relate with compassion and empathy. We obsess about what’s next and what we need to do to get there.
As part of an ecosystem, we exist to unlock what is possible with your digital initiative, enabling you to reimagine, redefine and rewire your business – as you need. We work with those charged with innovating the business, navigating digital disruption and turning information into an asset. Applying both left and right brain methods, we help you design, make and optimise your digital experience.
We use a combination of cognitive methods, design thinking principles, and agile work practices, as part of a partner ecosystem – so that you can effectively realise the investment you are making in digital transformation.
