Many of the problems and challenges that we now face – such as climate change and adaptation, mobility and accessibility, safety, and a sustainable living environment – are complex: many parties are involved and there are many innovative ideas for improvement. But it is by no means always clear whether these various innovations do actually contribute to the set objectives and under which preconditions. In order to better understand the challenges and the innovations, Copernicos has developed the STORM method together with the Dutch Department of Waterways and Deltares.
With the STORM method we systemically map out a problem. Together with clients and stakeholders we value the proposed measures and innovations. In doing so participants determine which innovations and measures have the greatest added value in the short and (medium) long term. It thus becomes clear which knobs must be turned to achieve the desired performance. In addition, those involved are given a common (or mental) model of the problem at hand. Which finally helps them to better understand and communicatie about the system.

cases we are proud of
connect, understand, improve
The Copernicos approach is an integrated approach. Together with our clients, we look at different interests and goals and look for mutual coherence. We connect (seemingly contradictory) ambitions, map out challenges and knowledge, and better understand the cohesion. Complexity is made visible, as are underlying factors that influence performance improvement. Using scenarios, we sketch a joint picture of what the future could look like, and what needs to happen in which project phase to get there. This makes it clear to everyone what needs to be done and why. In this way, you prepare for future developments and make well-considered decisions.
Connect on your goals, understand the cohesion and make better decisions.

Futurologist and Copernicos
In a presentation by futurologist Richard van Hooijdonck I heard a number of things that correspond with the Copernicos vision. Van Hooijdonck outlines a development that is currently underway: the world is in a process of connecting in which parts react, interact and influence each other.
