Motu Novu values creativity, sound research, and well-tested frameworks. However, we are driven by the entrepreneur’s zeal for getting things done, and primarily focus on execution: models and insight are irrelevant, unless they help deliver results.
Many consultancies are about playing politics and pleasing egos. Instead, Motu Novu’s professionals strive to tell the truth, as they see it, no matter how bad it hurts. Our deliverables are polished, but we work to impress with competence, not sophistry.
Claims of execution and earnestness ring hollow without experience to back them up. Not accidentally, many of our professionals are very seasoned: in every (business) conversation, there simply is no substitute for knowing what one is talking about.
Motu Novu favors professionals who are capable of discovering systems where others see chaos, who work on solutions while others get fixated on problems, and who can see the connection between tactical maneuvers and strategic goals.
Seeing the path and walking the path are altogether different actions. Strategy and analysis do matter, but they are tools, not excuses for inaction. Motu Novu thus favors professionals who will get things done, no matter how hard it gets.
Motu Novu believes that “common sense” is, in fact, quite uncommon, and often quite nonsensical. Motu Novu’s professionals can discern truth from consensus, and intelligently and courageously speak out against the status quo, when needed.
Any attempt to pursue greatness, however defined, cannot be divorced from a measure of independence, both of the mind and in the wallet. Motu Novu favors professionals who are self-reliant, and can afford to practice intellectual honesty without fear.
Motu Novu abhors power-drunk globalism, yet believes in an interconnected world in which true diversity is a source of shared human wealth. Our professionals tend to be well-traveled, and wield the curiosity of explorers and the nuance of ambassadors.
