New Ways of Working

Bringing new team approaches and new work cultures and behaviours to life

Contact us to learn more

CULTURE AND TEAMS

We maintain an extensive knowledgebase of new ways of working, management techniques and team practices that our clients can use as part of their own learning and transformation programmes.

Most of these new connected ways of working are simple to introduce, but we also work more intensively with innovative teams to help support and structure their work more effectively using techniques like Getting Things Done (GTD), Working out Loud (WOL), Go to Gemba, Team of Teams, Minimum Viable Strategy and more.

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

Leaders set the weather in organisations, and their behaviour also influences how others act. Adaptive organisations need more, not less, leadership – but leadership that goes beyond simple bureaucratic management to inspire, support and direct the work of colleagues.

We run executive learning sessions to help leaders adopt network-centric leadership methods, and we work alongside existing development programs to deliver the enablement activities required by leaders to sustain new digital behaviours in the workplace.

THE NEW WORLD OF WORK

It is important to communicate what digital transformation means to people working in the organisation, and how new ways of working can improve their day-to-day experience.

In our transformation programmes, we provide an online hub that helps explain all aspects of an agile, adaptive organisation and what it means to work in a more connected way, plus we can offer a range of online and group learning tools and content to reinforce this message, as well as inspiring keynotes and fun workshops for internal events.
