Today's workforce is under stress from an oversupply of labour and a simultaneous growing skills shortage.
The mismatch of talent resources represents the biggest economic threat to our futures as enterprises struggle to find and keep staff, while workers face a shortage of secure, satisfying and engaging work.

At Meta Management, we believe the solution lies in bringing together a workforce ecosystem of suppliers, developers and users of talent, with the common purpose of building the capabilities to succeed in the digital era.

The future is digital. People unlock its potential.

Your digital future awaits.

Is it time to find your next opportunity? Get ahead of the rest by taking a strategic and informed approach with your applications. Learn how to present your whole self with all your capabilities and to identify your ideal jobs – because there is nothing more soul-destroying than the radio silence that follows random acts of résumé-sending.

Digital ways of working have become the most highly-desired skills. Why? Because without them, the power technology cannot be realised. As business becomes more digitised, it will be those with the skills for enabling digital transformation, innovation and new enterprise value who will reap the rewards while future-proofing their careers.

Whether your organisation is implementing a new software or undertaking a full-business digital transformation, one thing is certain: digital change has its challenges. The chances of project success, rate of resource utilisation and return on investment can be improved if the change starts at the level of culture, then skills, before progressing to process.

There are no new opportunities without change.

In a world disrupted, disintermediated and redefined by digital technology, we need the collective capability to create and deliver new value without placing any more pressure on under-stress resources.

Meta Management works to bring people and innovation together in organisations to grow and perform through a purpose-driven, customer-centric culture.

We have made it our mission to:

  • Close skill gaps, improving the utilisation of available skill and talent
  • Close the digital capability gap, facilitating society’s transition to the future of work
  • Implement successful digital transformations, clearing away legacy systems and practices and re-building a culture and community fit for open, collaborative and agile ways of working so you can make the most of the opportunities the digital revolution offers.

What we are talking about right now: poetry

Why are some physicians including poetry as part of their treatment of patients?

Because they know people need to participate in their own healing. Intimidating medical terminology and clinical diagnoses can actually get in the way of the relationship between doctors and patients.
fMRI scans show poetry has an immediate impact on the brain. It helps communication by bringing people onto the same page’, and makes the real world feel more manageable and meaningful.
Even listening to poetry improves flexible thinking, integrates multiple thoughts and addresses the novel and unpredictable. Bring poetry into your organisation to pull people together during times of change.

Meta Management is a consultancy that specialises in preparing for and maximising the opportunities in the digital future of business and work. Often over-simplified as telecommuting tech workers, tech start-ups and mass job losses due to automation, the reality of the future of work is the organisational shift. The industrial era approach operated in insular and static ways. Value generation was measured in terms of efficiency and productivity: the most you could make for the least resource use.

With digital technology, the infinite nature of data and connectivity means there are endlessly new ways to generate value. Reaching markets is no longer limited to the capacity of production lines, physical output or present resources. The future of work means an organisation’s ability to muster and manage its intangible assets, creating an infrastructure that harnesses the technical, creative, collaborative, intellectual, social, emotional and intuitive abilities of people.

That’s what we do at Meta Management: develop people and cultures to enable the creation of new enterprise value.

Geoff

When Geoff talks, everyone listens. When it comes to change management, there aren’t too many with his knack of breaking down large problems into manageable, actionable steps that people at all levels of the organisation can understand and get behind.
As if his three decades of experience in large technology-driven change projects wasn’t enough, Geoff turns words like ‘values’ and ‘purpose’ into tangible actions, ensuring projects don’t just stay on track but deliver their intended value.
Geoff is an accomplished creative writer and published poet, skills which once had little in common with his corporate life. Today, however, imagination and illustrative language are recognised as powerhouse tools for critical and creative thinking, relationship-building and problem-solving. Geoff is an experienced facilitator whose creative writing workshops are an invaluable way to build empathy into organisational leadership. Geoff’s mellifluous tones can be found on LinkedIn.

We wanted to thank Meta Management for working with us to establish key foundations that assisted us to reach this point of success in our journey. The key learnings, disciplines and advice you provided have been invaluable to us as a business. The thinking we explored as part of our sessions put us on the right path to undertake and achieve this awards recognition.

I would just like to thank you again for the amazing delivery of your workshop. Of all the workshops I have been to, this was the most interesting and engaging. Thank you for your advice and time I appreciate it.

Recognising change needed to be brought throughout the business and not just to management, we employed the assistance of Meta Management. Meta facilitated group sessions with our people who developed and found a way to consistently articulate our values. Now some 9 months later, we are already seeing a marked difference in the way our people go about their day to day business with a clearer focus on the company’s goals and how they contribute and are such a part of them. Our service standards and business opportunities have increased as a direct result.
