It’s ambiguity in defining both the problem and the outcome.
An uncertain path between the two, buffeted by stakeholders that can be influenced, not controlled. If this is your challenge, then you are already unsafe.
If this is your challenge, then you are already unsafe.
Chances are big processes, big teams and the traditional have made you unsafe.

Better outcomes come from rethinking assumptions, challenging the herd, inviting criticism and being prepared to venture from the path of least resistance. Often these don’t need to be big changes. Significant leverage can come from seemingly minor changes in approach informed by insight, clearer, smarter thinking and becoming more persuasive at winning support from others.
It’s not easy. We look for clients who are prepared to try something different. Delivering outcomes this way means a journey not a procurement – a partnership of trust built on a foundation in success. If the outcomes aren’t outstanding stop using us – but with 90 per cent of our business coming from repeat clients, we don’t think you will be disappointed.
We know it takes courage to try something different, but taking some risk isn’t foolhardy, it’s how something different happens. It’s the province of leaders.

Shoddy thinking is costly, both in money and in quality of life.
Excellence in thought, however, must be systematically cultivated.
Consulting theory isn’t enough – especially with the public sector where the commercial drivers simply don’t align with social outcomes.

It’s not easy. Bureaucracies compete internally for resources, winning on the power of the presentation rather than the value of the argument..
Organisational biases, history and group think compound the problem. The people who created a problem are going to defend their choices.
