A Pulse - more than just a questionnaire

In a complex environment, whether it is the market, your own organizational culture, or public policy, creating change needs awareness of your current situation. Our Pulses help you understand your customers, employees, or stakeholders through the stories they tell about their experiences. Collect real feedback to improve your business, react faster to market changes, and understand the actual needs of your employees or customers.

Common questionnaires are not able to provide facts and context, they are gameable and people often just say what they think you want to hear. Our Pulses provide real and actionable data you can rely on.

Cognitive Edge has been challenging conventional thinking on strategy, leadership, culture, conflict resolution and change management since 2005. The science of complexity and the recognition of an unpredictable future drive our practice. Our view of reality is based on years of research in the fields of anthropology and the natural sciences. One of our major contributions, via Dave Snowden, to the science of complexity and the ability to act in it is the Cynefin framework. Knowing how to act is our priority: from citizen participation to business improvement and adaptation to unstable markets, we have been there. Wherever human beings have had the need or desire to solve complex problems quickly but without cutting corners, our tools have been used. Pulses are just one of them.
