Our scholar-practitioner approach provides the bridge between research and practice to maximise the learning and benefit to organisations.
CEO and founder
Dr. Jacqueline Hiddlestone-Mumford
We respect different views and beliefs in always treating other people in the same manner as we want to be treated and honouring individuality.
We trust our ability to know what is right and use cultural insights appropriately to understand the global perspective.
We hold ourselves to account for everything we do and embrace opportunities to contribute.
Guiding the journey of your strategic development to operational excellence.
To help clients prosper through innovation, from developing strategy to operational delivery.
Do you struggle to implement your strategies to reach income targets?
Worse still, do you develop a strategy to have it sit on the shelf, collecting dust?
We work with you to develop a strategy that is workable for your organisation, be it one business unit, a specific focus such as digital or cyber security, or the whole organisation. We then work with you to develop the approach that is achievable in delivering that strategy. We walk alongside you, step in and out as needed or deliver in total.
We start with the Why, before the How or What. Techniques include the approach to facilitating strategy development, ensuring it is realistic and achievable and approaches to engagement within the organisation. We also draw on our network of partners to facilitate the ability to realise strategy through a greater human-centric understanding.
Partners such as CQify focus on cultural intelligence to increase understanding across organisations to improve engagement and cultural performance.
Wow is all I can say, in a day we developed our strategic direction, and no one made an excuse to leave. The board were focused, and we now have a realistic direction for the next two years. I can’t wait until our next session on the 90-day sprints to achieve our goals. Your approach was inspiring. Thank you Jacqui.
