Our consulting Process

From the outside organisations in the same industry and sector can look the same. From the inside it’s a different story.

We work with you to understand the current organisational system and culture, starting from where you’re at and knowing what’s working for you right now. With these insights, we work with teams to generate options and create hypotheses & experiments, which they can test & learn from.

1. empathize & define

Validate the need for change, uncover your assumptions and discover perspectives.  We do this using tools from Agile, Design Thinking, Lean and Organisational Psychology.

2. create

Creating ‘safe to fail’ experiments where success and progress measures are agreed upfront.  Using tools from the Centre for Evidence Based Management, Cognitive Edge, Lean Change and Design Thinking we support teams to co-create their experiments.

3. experiment

Using the Lean Change Cycle teams prepare, introduce and review their experiments.  Using on-line tools to capture data, review progress and analyse results.

4. Learn

Using frequent retrospectives to learn from your experiments, we will help you understand what the results mean and how you can use them to grow your organisation.

Our Customers

Banks, utility companies, universities, oil & gas and software companies are just some of the organisations who have benefited from working with us.
