Glassroots helpt organisaties om te innoveren en groeien via samenwerking met al hun stakeholders. Niet bilateraal maar in partnership waar alle stakeholders samen uitzoeken wat hen bindt, waar ze willen rond samenwerken, wat ze precies gaan doen en hoe ze dat gaan meten. We hebben daarvoor een methodologie ontwikkeld en zijn inmiddels aan de slag voor Microsoft (www.slim-werken.be) en de VRT. 
We vertrekken vanuit het vinden van 'shared values', een concept dat werd ontwikkeld door Prof. Michael Porter, Harvard University. In deze video legt hij uit wat dat betekent http://glassroots.com/2012/04/16/creating-shared-value-its-the-future/
