With a solid academic background in economics and social sciences, and a broad, cross-disciplinary approach, we work with public authorities and private stakeholders towards rethinking the industry, fostering dialogue across established divisions and creating economic growth to the benefit of both companies and society.
Our combination of specialized industry knowledge and solid experience with innovation management enable us to create the basis for innovation – transforming ideas into ready-for-market solutions.
Smith is deeply rooted in an academic background within economics and social science. This enables us to address often neglected perspectives in a product- and project-oriented industry. We believe this cross-functional approach is the key to success regardless of whether we are enabling firms to develop new services or providing policy recommendations for governmental institutions.
We believe that an increased complexity in the challenges that meet our clients must be matched with an increased complexity in how to understand them. Therefore, Smith is a team of specialists with different academic backgrounds, but all having in common that we complement the current disciplines of the building industry. Having this wide but at the same time “in depth” approach enables us to apply a 360-degree perspective on the industry and translate its internal agendas into specific and tangible value and new market opportunities for our clients.
