Practical, Manageable, Innovative business change
We work with you and your team to design and implement proven methodologies using data, technology, and expert facilitators to develop your “Future Fit” organisation.
Before Covid, would you have described your organisation as being “Future Fit”? And now??
Being “Future Fit” is not about having a long-range plan, though that’s important. Being “Future Fit” is being able to adapt any and all aspects of your Business Model, quickly and as easily as possible, when a dramatic event, like Covid, hits us. Covid is not the only kaleidoscopic change that we will experience. The world is changing in new and different ways. Change is no longer linear – its exponential and multivariate. We need different approaches if we want to thrive now and in the future.
To succeed, business leaders and people managers need new ways of organising, performing, and leading, along with new approaches to sourcing, developing, and engaging people. In short – new ways of business, new ways of working.

According to research by McKinsey, Forbes, et al, more than 70% of Digital Transformation projects fail. There are various reasons given for this, but putting them all together the overarching reason is that Digitalisation is approached on a piecemeal basis, instead of looking at is wholistically, and organisation-wide.
Digitalisation, today, sits at the confluence of business processes, technology and people, and can impact almost all moving parts of the organisations business model.

The years 2020/2021 are being called the “greatest remote work experiment ever”. And, we have learnt a lot in that period. More importantly, we have learnt how “Work-from-Anywhere” can help organisations be more productive and cost-effective.
For this reason, we don’t see “Work-from-Anywhere” as a “policy-issue”. There are just too many moving parts, too many “independent variables” in the equation, to allow it to be just about policy. We see “Work-from-Anywhere” as a strategic initiative in organisations. An initiative that needs to see improvements in the business and return on investment. Read more …

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Knockri – Enhance Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Knockri is a ML (Machine Learning) tool that helps remove human bias in the hiring or internal mobility process. Diversity, Equity and Inclusion have become a goal that many organisations strive to achieve. Knockri addresses the issue of diversity in hiring by removing barriers for organisations and enabling candidate selection practices that predict performance and improve diversity.
Knockri uses sophisticated Natural Language Processing (NLP) models that only analyse the relevant behavioural content of each interviewee’s transcript, and how it relates to performance on-the-job.
Knockri’s NLP models take a different approach, grounded in scientific theory, which are transparent and enable purely objective scoring and go beyond “good psychometrics” and effectively drive DEI metrics for your organisation.
Using Knockri helps you hire Better, Faster, and Fairer.
