The Perfect Non-Event

"All safe, ladies and gentlemen."


Elisha Otis


More than 160 years ago, Elisha Otis invented the first elevator in which a safety feature was engineered, that prevented the elevator from free falling in the event that one of its ropes broke. This feature drastically transformed real estate all over the world and triggered the skyscraper era.

Our team of experts recognizes and applies similar features on a daily basis, creating value by helping out clients to avoid certain events to happen. Hence, Arthur Systems & Strategies is an expert in creating the ‘perfect non-event’.

Let us help you create your perfect non-event.






Did you ever hear somebody say: ‘That was a very safe and secure day today’, or ‘This platform feels very privacy-protective and trustworthy’? Good things are sometimes taken for granted.


Such as well-architected, well-oiled and well-tested symbiosis of organizational and technical capabilities, measures and monitoring.


It saves resources, avoids risks and maximizes rewards, while making an organization an attractive partner to its stakeholders, including citizens, customers, suppliers and investors.


So, in any situation there is more than meets the eye.


What & How?

We support organizations to identify and assess their pain relievers, gain generators and success optimizers, and co-write your roadmap to success behind the scenes.


For this we deploy our proprietary State-of-the-art (SOTA) frameworks, common reference models and other best practices. So you can state: ‘All safe, ladies and gentlemen’, just as Mr. Otis.






Because of the digital revolution, the approach of organizations as verticals, solely focusing on and active in their core business is totally outdated. Being involved in plural (technological and information) infrastructures and therewith connected to different stakeholders, sectors and industries, organizations should be approached as horizontals instead.


Quick example: compare the core business(es) of banks in the past and today; aside from extensive data exchange/brokering activities most banks now have a dedicated IT branch, providing their clients with all kinds of digital services.


Get a holistic overview of your organization and its activities and (re)define your ecosystem.



This new approach opens up a can of new stakeholders and (regulatory) conditions. Arthur Strategies & Systems helps you navigate and identify and utilize new opportunities.

S.I.M.: Scenario, Impact & Measures



In an ever-changing society, the playing field of organizations is constantly subject to change.

Your best-case scenario today can be your worst-case scenario tomorrow.


Ensure that the decisions and actions you take for your organization are the right ones and remain up to date and aligned with the ecosystem your organization is part of.

2.    Impact – optimally rationalize the impact and make an assessment

3.    Measure- formulate technical and organizational measures
