The ManAgement Lab
by capgemini invent


The Management Lab by Capgemini Invent bridges the latest management ideas into practice.

In a world of perpetual transformation, sustainable growth depends on a company’s ability to reinvent its business, organisation and culture. We help companies reinvent themselves, by developing actionable frameworks designed to bring the frontier of management into the real world of business.

We build our own research and collaborate with renowned academics from leading business schools, including, Harvard Business School, MIT, IMD, LBS, and INSEAD. New ideas are tested and applied through strategic workshops with pioneering leaders, challenge sessions with academics, executive coaching.

We have a long-standing partnership with Thinkers50, the world’s most reliable source for identifying, ranking, and sharing the leading management ideas of our age. Our team is a regular contributor to leading management magazines, including, “I” by IMD, Dialogue Review, LSE Business Review.

A strong legacy

The Management Lab by Capgemini Invent originates from the European Centre for Strategic Innovation (ECSI), a management research and strategic advisory center, founded by the late Alessandro di Fiore (1965-2021), one of the most influential global voices in strategy and innovation. ECSI was acquired by the Capgemini Group in 2021, and the team joined Capgemini Invent to help shape the new frontier of management for clients.
