Innovative + Agile = Survive & Thrive

As the world becomes ever more volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous our organisations must readily, rapidly and repeatedly change direction to create new value in new ways – or risk being disrupted and displaced by those that do.

The top priority for any forward-thinking CEO or senior executive is pulling off organisation-wide change that enables, empowers and engages everyone to build an innovative agile organisation fit to survive and thrive in this future.

The big challenge is to pull off this transformation in a realistic time frame whilst avoiding the huge costs and significant risk of failure traditionally associated with major change – all whilst continuing to deliver expected results.

Building an Innovative Agile Organisation

Organisational Innovation

One-off innovations are easy enough to achieve simply by outsourcing them - but building an innovative agile organisation requires your people to consistently combine their different perspectives in ways that co-create new value.

Unless the culture enables, encourages and supports this combination of diversity these differences will interact in uniquely dysfunctional ways to stifle, smother and strangle innovation and agility.

"This Size Doesn't Fit Us..."

Traditional ‘one-size-fits-all’ change methods won’t build you an innovative agile organisation - because they fail to focus precisely enough and deeply enough on shifting the mindsets of the key influencers that systemically affect everyone and everything else.

Without this leverage, creating a culture of innovation becomes a very high risk gamble - like trying to rebuild a plane flying at 30,000ft or a ship at sea in a force ten gale.

Finding Your Unique Way

Just as innovation is about unique ways of creating new value, building an innovative agile organisation is a uniquely different journey for each organisation that's dictated by its specific capabilities, competences and constraints.

Interventions that fail to effectively leverage the organisation’s unique strengths will invariably end up reinforcing its unique biases, blocks and barriers to innovation and agility instead.

Taking Pragmatic Low Risk High Leverage Action

For more than 30 years I’ve helped senior executives throughout Europe, Asia and the US take low risk, high leverage steps to mobilise their own people to create unique cultures of innovation and build agile organisations.


My approach is founded on the recognition that widespread adoption of innovative mindsets is the solid foundation on which innovative agile organisations are built.


I help clients enable, encourage and embrace the systemic, organisation-wide adoption of innovative mindsets by taking pragmatic, low risk, high leverage action at a manageable pace and in ways that are fully attuned to their unique, specific organisational reality.
