Social distancing, teleworking, omnipresent masks and mass vaccination of the population. Four scenarios that would have seemed like the makings of a science fiction story at the beginning of 2020, but which are now the script for our reality. We probably won't fully grasp the real impact this year will have for some time to come. The one thing we do know at Opinno is that this year has tested all of us in terms of our agility and ability to adapt to change.

Creating measurable impact through innovation is not just our company's motto, it is something intentional, something that is in our founding DNA and that, in its second edition, gives its name to a report of a year destined to be etched in history books. Our 2020 Impact Report looks beyond the figures and focuses on the core of our business, what really moves us, the measurable impact generated for our clients, their business sector and society in general.
2020 has been a year of accelerating the digitalization of companies worldwide. As a global innovation consultancy we have been witness to this revolution and once again, part of helping to manage the crisis in terms of opportunity.
It has been a year of new achievements, during which we have strengthened our international presence, grown in different areas of activity and created strategic alliances with companies such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft and Workday, a company with which we launched the first global study on the Agile Maturity Index of companies. Our case studies have been presented at leading business schools such as IESE and ESCP, and we have strengthened contact with our community through Opinno Talks, adopting the webinar format and involving business leaders and CEOs of reference. During this particularly challenging year, we have maintained the pace of our informative activity by publishing articles on a wide variety of companies, in addition to our collaboration with the MIT Technology Review. Opinno.org, our social arm, has also increased its activity to such an extent that it has featured in three of the 12 impact stories contained in this report.
Measuring results is the key to our business. At the beginning of each project we define, together with the client, the KPIs that will evaluate our performance both during and after the project, always evaluating the actual impact produced. Our ultimate goal is always to provide a set of feasible ideas or workable products.
Our projects often include the construction of a new company vision together with its implementation plan, the creation of an innovation ecosystem, or the cultural transformation of a company, its ways of working, product portfolio or technological infrastructure.
We chose 12 collaborative projects that showcase genuine impact stories and are representative of hundreds of the projects carried out this year across our three areas of activity: Open Innovation, Strategy & Business Architecture and Technology Solutions.
To learn more about these stories, we would like to introduce you to our 2020 Impact Report and encourage you to become part of our community via our events and social networks. Finally, we would like to thank all our clients, consultants, collaborators and competitors. You motivate us to improve ourselves each and every day.
