What we do.
Asper support policy makers, practitioners and innovators to apply systems thinking and design theory to their work.
Systems thinking principles come from the systems theory which is the interdisciplinary study of systems. Using systems theory helps us analyse complex interrelated and interdependent parts of a system that is either natural or man made. Systems thinking is key to understanding the root causes of a problem. It helps us understand the skills, knowledge and behaviour that need to be changed to create sustainable changes at scale.
Put simply, systemic change is all about understanding what is going on by taking a scientific, environmental and social approach and making it better.
Asper support social entrepreneurs, private companies and impact investors in designing and scaling up inclusive business solution.
Inclusive businesses are sustainable businesses that benefits low-income people and communities. It is a business initiative that, keeping its for-profit nature, contribute to poverty reduction through the inclusion of low income communities in its value chain or consumers base.
In simple world inclusive business is all about including the poor in the business process be it as producers or consumers.
Asper provide bespoke services to companies and organisations to design, implement and measure innovative systems and processes based on the circular economy principles.
Circularity is an economic system thought and design aimed at eliminating waste and promoting the continual use of ressources. We believe circularity is an imperative in a world of finite ressources. Circularity systems cannot be reduced to reuse, refurbish and recycle. It aims to completely rethink the way we design, consume and impact our environment.
In simple worlds, circularity is all about re-inventing economic principles to adapt to the challenges of the XXI century.
