VISIONVISION

To apply the concept of “Business Design Architect”
—Creating new value via
“Strategy and Architecture (Design)”—

The current environment is driving demand for new strategies to rejuvenate
existing businesses as disruptive innovations in IoT and AI continue to materialize.
In this light, many strategic consulting firms are taking the approach of merging digitalization
and design with detailed strategies tailored to their clients’ specific needs.

Surging through the veins of Plantec Consulting is a potent fusion of architectural design and business strategy.
Drawing management strategy functions into the mix creates an all-inclusive “business design”
that covers everything from high-level business strategies to detailed planning.

Our creative power lies in the blend of design and strategic thinking
that is sensitive to change and swift to introduce new value.
This is what underpins the “Business Design Architect” we strive for.
