Approach

Develop a human-centred organisation and become more responsive to client

The Challenge

  • Do you want to grow your business but you're not sure how?
  • Do you have talented teams but believe that they could be doing more or adding more value?
  • Do you have well intentioned teams but feel like you could be more responsive to your clients?
  • Have you started to implement a solution that isn't delivering the results intended?

Then perhaps I can help.

I've helped some of the world's leading organisations to develop insights, build learning and innovation capability, accelerate advocacy across their client-base and grow new businesses.

These are transformational challenges and solutions usually include a blend of:

  • Learning to listen
  • Creating a culture of learning and experimentation
  • Designing metrics to measure what really matters
  • Establishing a common language and team practices for problem solving

Insight | Design | Capability | Culture

My Role

Practitioner | Facilitator | Coach

I partner with leaders and product and service owners and help them build new capability, bring new services to market and grow.

I work with management and operational teams to conduct research, coach teams to elicit and exploit insight and embed the mechanisms for continuous learning and change.

The Process

A Human-centred approach is a common thread throughout the learning, design and transformational programmes I lead.

I dip into a range of best practice across Design Thinking and innovation practices such as Agile and LEAN Start-up and behavioural sciences, particularly Gestalt.

Technology is the enabler but for me people are at the heart of what I do.

The illustrated process gives an indicative outline of the stage-gates and decision-points throughout the change journey.

Kick-off workshop to engage stakeholders

During a 3-hour workshop you will cover:

  • Human-Centred Design - solving problems through a new lens
  • Developing innovation capability: new ways of working and stage-gates
  • Measuring success - measuring the right thing In the right way at the right time
  • Getting started - what's next

The Impact

Organisations I've worked with have been enabled to deliver award winning digital services to market, accelerate their product and service innovation pipelines and grow new businesses.
