Using a range of analytical techniques, such as scenario generation, risk modelling methods (including Sherpa) and structured forecasting, we aim to reduce uncertainty about the future so that you are better prepared for events which are hard to predict. Aleph Insights is able to both design and facilitate focused analytical workshops, and conduct research and data analysis to produce evidence-based answers to a wide range of questions and provide auditable recommendations about critical decisions you face.

Future space scenarios
- Client: Defence Science and Technology Laboratories
- Years: 2018 - 2019
A government client asked Aleph Insights to produce a series of scenarios for the number and types of vehicles orbiting Earth in 2043. Working with a group of engineers, scientists and policymakers, Aleph Insights developed five scenarios covering a range of outcomes, from a highly-contested and congested space environment, to one in which future technologies had largely solved the problem of space debris. Aleph Insights then drew on a range of data sources to express these scenarios in concrete, quantitative terms, enabling our client to consider policy responses against a realistic and tractable suite of possible futures.

Innovation readiness metric design
- Client: Ministry of Defence
- Years: 2015 - 2016
In 2015, the Ministry of Defence asked Aleph Insights to help them adopt a more open approach to innovation as a central pillar of the Strategic Defence and Security Review. We worked with 100%Open – the UK’s leading open innovation consultancy – to design a metric that could be used to identify the key enablers and blockers to the initiative’s success, and to collect and analyse data on the indicator using a large-scale survey. The tool (which is now part of 100%Open’s online toolkit) enabled the MOD’s decision-makers to assess the likely impact of proposed interventions and make auditable investment decisions quickly and efficiently.
