What does leadership look like in a network-centric business world?
There is a wealth of material available on new ways of working, emerging technologies and theories of the organisation. We read this so you don’t have to, providing summaries and action lists to our clients through our extensive knowledge base.
We regularly deliver introductory talks for all levels of the organisation to help people understand the impact and potential of Digital Transformation. We also contribute to executive education and coaching, helping business leaders understand how they can make digital technology work for them.
We have designed a series of animation sessions for transformation teams that covers all the main areas of activity, and we deliver these as a 6- or 10-course tasting menu:
- Business Model innovation
- Tracking changing client & market dynamics
- Service design and customer centricity
- The firm as a platform
- Service-oriented technology
- Information and data sharing
- Culture and new ways of working
- Agile management & organisation structures
- Staffing and new roles in the future firm
- Learning and education
Talks & events: We deliver keynote talks at industry events, conferences and to internal corporate teams.
Executive briefings & coaching: We are particularly interested in the future of leadership in a network-centric world, and work with business leaders to explore this.
Quick-start workshops: A half-day initial workshop at our base in London’s Tech City, or at your offices, can kick-start thinking about next steps.
Knowledge base: Clients access our extensive online knowledge base of theories, examples, tools and techniques to help their own internal change efforts.
