HELPING FIRMS EVOLVE

We help organisations become 21st Century businesses by unlocking the organisational innovation enabled by social and digital technologies.

For startups, this means scaling with no loss of magic and without creating inefficient corporate hierarchies where they are not needed.

For established companies, this means reduced overheads, increased agility, greater responsiveness to change and learning to operate more like a fast-moving startup.

As pioneers in using social technology to improve organisational performance for over a decade, we have helped hundreds of clients gain real benefits from new ways of working.

THE QUANTIFIED ORG

Our Quantified Org methodology provides a framework for goal-setting and measuring the impact of social technology adoption, organisational change and new ways of working.

We believe Digital Transformation should be organised around the capabilities the organisation needs to develop, rather than short-term adoption metrics or long-term hopes and dreams. This provides a way to measure success that is business-relevant and easily understood; we do this using a combination of real-time data and feedback from the workforce.

Whatever your use case for using new technology for business transformation, we can help construct organisational health measures that give everybody a real-time picture of the impact of that work. The days of top-down change programmes are numbered – this approach allows all levels of the organisation to be involved in gradual, agile transformation.
