OUR PHILOSOPHY & APPROACH
THINKING AND WORKING
And Just How Did We Get Here?
OUR CHALLENGE
WHAT'S DRIVING US?
We've been both observers and recipients of how organisations think and work.

We've been thinking about that for a long time. We've worked in both large and small organisations. It wasn't always a very rewarding experience.

We saw many outdated approaches to thinking – techniques that served the provider more than us. We didn't see much importance attached or value added as strategic thinking was developed or applied. There was very little to show for a lot of money and effort.

The organisation didn't grow as a result.

WHAT MATTERS
And The Vital Art Of Thinking Differently
We have so many choices so how on earth do we decide what's right?

We believe it's vital to expand the context of every situation and literally see what's going on. We call this Framework Science™. Context is the crucial foundation because it allows us to see the landscape properly. Subsequently we can identify/decide what matters – what will make the difference.

By knowing what matters we can make it meaningful to everyone involved. By thinking this way we are more likely to enlist everyone to the aims and ambitions of the organisation.

WE ALL KNOW WHAT MATTERS WHEN WE DON'T

THE ART OF COLLABORATION
A FIRST PRINCIPLE
DOING THINGS ON PURPOSE
There's a whole lot of confusion around basic concepts for strategy or simply improving performance inside business. Many words get used to describe the important bits that are required to make a business work properly. You know - Vision. Mission. Outcome. Objective. Aspiration. Intention.

The very first principle is making everyone conscious of the purpose of the organisation and then doing everything deliberately as a result. We don't care too much what words we finally use as long as everyone shares in the meaning and idea.

THAT JUST MAKES SENSE

Charles Mingus
"Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that's creativity."
Whatever the size or shape of your team we've developed 'points of view' about how organisations should think and work.

We believe most businesses already have the majority of the 'solution' somewhere inside their organisation. We uncover and stimulate that thinking through our approach.

We bring experiences from elsewhere and make sure we positively challenge - if needed - and based on some evidence. But ultimately it's our clients that need to be confident and fluent in the answer.

Our techniques have been refined and proven along the way – they go right to the heart of the issue. Changing minds by reframing the way we should think and work to succeed.

CRITICAL THINKING
SO HOW DOES THIS WORK?
It's easy to say that it depends, but it really does.
Each challenge or opportunity is unique to us. The only common factor is that we will collaborate in the most appropriate way so that we identify the best way to crack the challenge.

Everything rests on teamwork.

We will bring our experience and 'tools' to each stage – whatever is going to be the best way to add value and make the difference. We like to do what's right. If that means working in the background or remotely at times – that will be fine. If it means living and working inside the organisation for short periods then that's also fine.

It all starts with agreeing the Exam Question!
