The Conclusion ecosystem: future-proof thanks to adaptation

Ecosystems in nature are designed to last centuries. Through principles like self-regulation, biodiversity and interconnection, ecosystems continuously adapt to their environment. This allows them to sustain themselves and survive. That is precisely why Conclusion is organized as an ecosystem: it offers certainty in a rapidly changing world where nothing is certain. Just like an ecosystem in nature, the Conclusion ecosystem is based on its own principles: we are future-proof, diverse and interconnected. In this first blog of a three-part series, we zoom in on what it means to be future-proof, and how adaptability is the key.

The Conclusion ecosystem: future-proof thanks to adaptation

Always relevant

To stay future-proof, you have to stay relevant. We want to be our clients’ one-stop-shop for business transformation and IT services. The Conclusion ecosystem comprises over 25 firms, each with its own area of expertise. We offer perfectly tailored services: the right fit for each client’s needs. This way we can offer you total peace of mind. In a world where changes come in rapid succession, we must be both agile and resilient. Our service is right for the market today, but it may not be tomorrow. So we continuously examine ourselves. What are we good at? In which areas do we want to development further? Where are our blind spots? The answers to these questions are the starting point for continuous adaptation.

In nature they call this sustainability: sustaining yourself by adapting to the changing world around you. Within Conclusion, we ensure this with dynamic leadership. The people at the helm of each expert firm are committed to continuous development. If the market has a specific need, we respond to it. If an existing company is not growing in that direction, we set up a new company, or bring an existing company into our ecosystem. We do this to boost our quality and our relevance. Not for growth in volume for its own sake.

Ecosystems boost innovation

A focus on relevance fosters innovation. We’re a big, cumbersome organization, but because we’re made up of different expert firms, we enjoy an enormous capacity for

innovation. The different firms all innovate in their own areas of expertise. It’s part of business, and it’s a must in order to stay relevant. To us, innovation means we stay on top of new technologies. Take artificial intelligence (AI), for instance. Various companies are researching not only how to deploy this technology in their own operational management, but also how it can help their clients. But why reinvent the wheel 25 times when you can learn from each other? This bundling of forces has produced a Conclusion-wide AI proposition that serves as the starting point for helping our clients.

These kinds of propositions are necessary to face the future together with our clients. We study what we expect they will need in order to achieve their goals. Of the myriad of options, which one is right for an organization? How do you keep pace with a world that’s constantly changing? Our strength lies in helping clients answer these kinds of questions. Not only does this keep us future-proof, it also lets us support our clients in this area.

A part of society

Finally, for us, being future-proof is all about society in general. Our society is the future, and we depend on it for our future. Many of our clients have an impact on society, and we want to serve them in areas like the energy transition, finance, construction, education and the health care transformation. We also want to part of society, by taking responsibility for solving the problems we face. Take sustainability, for instance. We believe that IT is not just one of the causes of the problem, but also the way forward to a solution. We want to use our thorough knowledge of transformation and self-organization as an ecosystem to mediate and facilitate sustainable partnerships.

And let’s not forget: our societal relevance sparks passion, energy and enthusiasm in our employees. We believe this is vital, because they’re not only our future, they’re the future of society as well.


As you’ve noticed, Conclusion is all about staying in motion and adaptation. Develop, innovate, adjust and respond. Only by keeping our sights set firmly on the future can we help clients on their digital journey to the world of tomorrow. Only by mastering the art of transformation ourselves can we help clients take charge of their digital evolution. For us, that’s the key to sustainable success.
