About Us

Signpost is a platform for developing data-driven strategic scenarios to help drive your business into the future.

Plan & prepare based on our data-driven strategic scenarios

Our Story

Signpost was formed to solve a really difficult problem – how to help businesses make better decisions about large capital expenditures over the long term.

With the problem defined, we set out to find the best people to help us build a platform to address the challenge. We’ve been working with CSIRO to develop modelling techniques that help us to see signposts in the data.

Together we’ve built a new way of doing data driven scenarios, merging a proven technique with data and expertise to drive strategy making into the future.

Computers are incredibly fast, accurate, and stupid: humans are incredibly slow, inaccurate and brilliant; together they are powerful beyond imagination”
