Helping Complex Organisations Innovate

Satisfied customers, enthusiastic employees, diminished competition
In the digital age, innovation is essential to meeting customer and employee expectations, and to avoiding disruption by competitors.

At Board and Senior Executive Team level, I support organisations seeking to innovate.

How can I help?

I have grappled with the challenge of innovation over a 40 year career in public service, the last 15 years of which have entailed leading large organisations through fundamental and constant change: from the Cold War, to Counter-Insurgency Campaigns, to the resurgence of Hostile States, latterly against the background of the 4th Industrial Revolution.

My experience of success and failure in this endeavour, the skills I have learnt and developed over time, my digital knowledge, and passion for innovation, have equipped me powerfully to help complex organisations with:

  • the definition of a process for arriving at a Strategy that will foster innovation,
  • testing the content of that Strategy, including the design of an innovation ecosystem, and
  • advising and mentoring leaders at all levels to ensure that Strategy is executed.
The intended result is not innovation for its own sake, but rather satisfied customers, enthusiastic employees, and diminished competition.

Germany's defense minister: "an unanimous opinion on Leopard 2 tank transfers to Ukraine has not been reached."

True, there were the "Yes" 🇺🇸🇬🇧🇫🇷🇮🇹🇹🇷🇵🇱🇨🇦🇪🇸🇳🇱🇸🇪🇫🇮🇩🇰🇳🇴🇮🇸🇨🇿🇸🇰🇷🇴🇧🇬🇪🇪🇱🇻🇱🇹🇵🇹🇬🇷🇸🇮🇭🇷🇦🇱🇧🇪🇲🇰🇲🇪🇱🇺🇦🇺🇳🇿🇯🇵🇰🇷🇯🇴🇹🇳🇲🇦🇶🇦

And there were also the "No" 🇩🇪🇭🇺

It seems that @Bundeskanzler Scholz is calculating that the risk of Russian nuclear weapon use is higher than the risk of #ukraine losing. Who knows? But we can be sure of one thing: the consequence of this calculation, if shared by others, is war in Europe for years.

As someone who was once an MOD customer, who is now, amongst other things, advising both SMEs and Primes in the Defence sector, I am looking forward to participating in this webinar.
