FOR MOST, CHANGE LOOKS IMPOSSIBLE UNTIL IT IS INEVITABLE YOU’LL KNOW ABOUT CHANGE BEFORE YOUR COMPETITION, BECAUSE REDSTONE KNOWS ABOUT CHANGE BEFORE OUR COMPETITION
Redstone provides the resources for you to look beyond (the horizon, looking beyond) what will happen today, tomorrow or next week (but in helping) AND INSTEAD HELP you to prepare what will happen beyond the current planning cycle.
(With Redstone there is no need to keep this capacity in-house.) Unlike other risk analysis firms we use a different paradigm to evaluate potential change in the market(;). (l) Like government agencies, most risk firms start predictive analyses by tapping capital establishment elite contacts for their impressions.
This approach allows one to understand the traditional or static view of change dynamics and was sufficient before (income redistribution) THE DEVELOPMENT OF
A GLOBAL MIDDLE CLASS and advances in information technology. Their basic needs satisfied, a new middle class acquires expectations of responsive governance. If not met, movements for political change often result. New technologies can catalyze the movements’ spread of information and rapid organization. By relying on a capital’s establishment elite for information, most risk firms are unable to spot at an early stage the future leaders and grassroots movements that, using new technology, bring about “impossible” change.
Redstone’s experts are drawn from organizations that have a record of predicting such change well before others, most recently in places such as Ukraine in 2014, the Middle East in 2011-12, and Moldova in 2009. They also judged that, despite large organized protests, opposition groups in Azerbaijan in 2011 and Cambodia and Turkey in 2013 were not capable of causing change. Redstone’s ability to gauge the potential of such movements and leaders, years out, is derived from:
decades of in-country experience assessing and working with today’s non-elite political and civil society movements resulting nationwide grassroots contacts new media analytics, and, crucially, proven highly accurate in-house frontier country polling ability and analysis
Redstone clients can therefore get real metrics — not just impressions – on if and when “impossible” political change is coming. And because Redstone discerns change coming long before our competition, Redstone’s clients can stay ahead of their competition.
