We are the human-first management consultancy
Traditional management consultants interpret people as figures in a spreadsheet. Rational units who work in uniform ways. Robots needing a tune-up.
This is their job. Their science.
It’s also a mistake. It breaks budgets and it breaks people.
Because today, success depends on original thought, not cookie-cutter behaviour. The humanity and creativity of your people is your biggest asset.
When change goes wrong, blame the Killer Bs
The Killer Bs
Often the ways businesses try to cure their performance only make things worse.
Here are three common culprits. We call them the killer ‘B’s.
The bean bag
You brainstorm away.
But sparkly ideas are just crappy baubles if you can’t execute them.
You slash and burn your way to the future. But that leads to more pain. Or you sneak outside the city walls and concoct an innovative thing. But when you bring it inside, it’s an alien.
You bring in someone who will sort this thing out for good.
But even the smartest individual is no match for a dysfunctional business.
