We help purpose-led leaders and organisations use the power of technology and the potential of their people to reach the future they desire.
The way we do business has been undergoing a radical shift. New customer expectations bring new opportunities, but require new ways of working to realise value. Traditional management practices, designed for the industrial age, are holding people and organisations back from what is possible.
We fix that.
Knowing where you want to go is one thing. Knowing how to get there is another. Futuring is the essential skill and mindset every leader needs to set a purpose around which people can rally, and focus on what they can do today to achieve for tomorrow’s conditions.
When every business problem today is either triggered by digital technology and/or solved by it, being adept at digital transformations is critical to making or breaking the future success of organisations of every size and in every industry.
Don’t let an under-prepared workforce hold you back. The lag in skills development for work in today’s fast-paced environment has made upskilling the organisation’s biggest (and the most easily avoided) risk to generating future value.
There are two parts to future: the future that happens to you, and the future you make happen.
Both offer opportunities – to the well prepared, that is.
1. Futuring: turning the future into a management asset
What risks and opportunities lie ahead? Where are they? How can you match your capabilities and people to address them?
Futuring applies multiple intelligences, planning and design processes including visual thinking, trends and insights analysis and scenario planning, to create possible constructions of the future so you can work on it before it arrives.
2. Future readiness: harnessing the power of technology
Once you know where you want to go, you need a process to get there.
Future readiness is unlikely without digital transformation which is using technology to realise the organisation’s resources including skills, knowledge, techniques, systems and methodologies in new ways to create new value.
3. Upskilling: unlocking the potential of people
Advancing technology, new customer expectations, shifting social attitudes: combined, these factors are fundamentally changing the source and nature of organisational value – aka the future of work. We build the individual and net abilities of your people around the skills and capabilities for producing, capturing and delivering value in our constantly evolving world.
A digital transformation is the goal and process of using technology to create new value from your organisational assets.
We’ll show you how you can implement a digital transformation that:
Identifies untapped value in your organisation
Utilises technology to its fullest advantage
Engages your people in an adaptive organisation and avoid the usual painful and costly blockers to change
Your information will not be used for any purpose other than to send you one email per week over the next 90 days (13 in total), each with an actionable step that will set you up to launch your business building, competition busting, disruption-beating transformation.
I recommend this book to you if you are concerned that change is a recent phenomenon negatively affecting your work life; it is not. One thing is constant, and that is change.
~ Russell Bode, Managing Director, Inzenius
The Michelangelo Project, authored by Meta Management founder Isabel Wu, answers many of the questions that keep people up at night when they think about the future of work. The book takes you on a journey from the beginning of change and those who faced it, through more recent periods and its impact on human work life.
Using stories to empathise how change has and will affect us all, The Michelangelo Project offers the reader a better pathway to approaching, responding to and considering their current digital challenges, and how to benefit from them.
