Many advisory companies help their clients with strategy, and many others tackle the people issues around culture and engagement. Thomas’s view, which I support wholeheartedly, is that changing the culture of a company enables the development of a new strategy.
If you want to succeed in today’s fast-changing world, you cannot afford to bet your future on the bright ideas of a handful of key people at the top; you need to tap into the insights and energy of the entire organisation. This is very much a part of the humanistic approach that Temporall embraces.
In addition, its unique Culture byDesign policy echoes many of the practices I have been analysing and discussing for many years in my books, including Fast/Forward (2017), Becoming a Better Boss (2013), Reinventing Management (2010), and Giant Steps in Management (2007).
I have spent my career observing and advising companies on the challenges of strategic agility and transformation, so working with Thomas and this team feels a natural fit for me - it is an area I am passionate about, and Temporall is offering a progressive and exciting new angle.
Today, with digital disruption on everyone’s agenda, these challenges are bigger than ever. I am excited to bring my experience and depth of insight to the exciting mission that Temporall has set out.
