Collaboration: Big Picture Problem Solving for Medium to Large Businesses

Posted by Stephen Parry on Mar 9, 2020 1:52:04 PM

Collaboration is about complimentary skills melding together harmoniously to enhance the effectiveness of the outcome.

Diagnosis + Prognosis: Unlocking your Organisation's Ability to Adapt

Posted by Stephen Parry on Nov 4, 2019 4:23:44 PM

Most traditional improvement tools and strategies are frequently ineffective and in many cases are applied for the wrong reasons.  This isn't to say, however, that you have to reinvent the wheel in order to be adaptive.  Many tools, when used in an adaptive business strategy - such as Business Agility, Lean, and Agile, can help you unlock entirely new capabilities and equip your workforce with the abilities it needs to face new demands, head-on. You must diagnose your business, make a prognosis, and create a work-climate that quickly adapts if your business is going to thrive.

Mission Critical: Capturing Emerging Customer Needs

Posted by Stephen Parry on Oct 11, 2019 1:52:14 PM

It is easy to point out that changing technologies, revised business models and increased competition demand an agile and adaptive response from businesses so that they can survive. While many companies seek to use these technologies to understand customers and create evermore elaborate marketing strategies, applying the technologies to redesign organisations and the world of work are less understood.
