We help organisations tackle complex transformation and develop collective agility, at the same time
A volatile and unpredictable environment presents complex innovation and transformation challenges. Solving them involves reconfiguring how diverse functions, levels and groups relate and work together along the entire value chain. This means the organisation needs to plan, implement, learn and adapt as a cohesive unit.
In our experience, many organisations struggle to respond as one. All too often issues such a lack of cohesion in the leadership team, rivalry between silos, friction between levels and roles, poorly managed change or a lack of leadership capacity mean that the whole ends up being less than the sum of the parts - and change initiatives fail to deliver the desired outcomes.
We enable organisations to tackle complex challenges as a connected whole, while also developing the collective agility needed to remain resilient over time. We do this by developing the capacity for Connected Intelligence. It deepens awareness, transforms collaboration across boundaries and realises the full potential of your organisation's most important assets - your people and their relationship networks.
In today's volatile environment, challenger organisations need to grow without losing the collective agility needed to remain resilient to future disruption. The problem is that most businesses end up sacrificing the innovation and agility that got them there in the first place, as the necessary trade-off for growing in size.
Connected Intelligence provides a different growth path for scaling organisations. By embedding whole system change capability in the organisational culture, processes and leadership, the organisation's ability to sense, adapt and respond as whole system to continuous disruption is preserved and enhanced, even as it develops and scales.
Typically, we design organisations for certainty and engineer for control. In a disruptive environment, however, it is not possible to predict the future or specify outcomes precisely. Instead, organisations need to sense, learn and adapt as a connected whole to whatever is emerging in the marketplace. This involves balancing traditional approaches to change with Connected Intelligence.
Connected Intelligence mobilises whole ecosystems around change. It breaks down the barriers between silos and levels, enabling the free flow of information and optimising collective problem-solving. Over time, it can be embedded within business culture and operational processes, developing the collective agility needed to navigate an increasingly complex and uncertain future.
