The development and launch of of the most advanced and powerful business diagnostic tool available.
By harnessing the substantial knowledge, experience and expertise of a number of leading business consultants, we facilitated a series of workshops that created the underlying model that was built upon an array of 272 identified correlations between business limitations and primary drivers. By working closely with the directors of Act 2 Transform Ltd we helped generate the breakthrough thinking that links these factors to Growth, Transformation and Innovation processes. This tool will help identify fundamental 'blockers' inhibiting success and other obstacles to generating competive advantage. To date, every business to trial it, has found significant, previously unknown, issues where the solutions have had a major impact. In recognition of our contribution to the development of this tool we have been granted an exclusive licence to offer it free of charge to qualifying UK businesses that want to harness its power to improve their innovation potential (see home page for application form).
To give you a flavour of what you can achieve, here we present a few key examples of the development and deployment of some of the other main tools and processes we employ to great effect.
We believe that innovation in everyday life is just as important as that in the world of business and we are proud to support projects that are closely aligned with our values. Most recently we have acted as co-investors in a particularly creative, not-for-profit, crowd-funded venture: ‘Harmony for Elephants’. This project aims to raise global awareness of the plight of African elephants as well as the farmers who live close to reserve boundaries and risk losing their crops and livelihoods as a result of wildlife incursions. Proceeds from this project will help the charity ‘Elephants For Africa’ continue their work to find sustainable, yet innovative solutions to aid elephant conservation whilst lessening the human-elephant conflict in Botswana. Of particular note has been their discovery that elephants are especially sensitive to the smell of chilli and will avoid areas where rags soaked in chilli oil are hung along boundary fences. By being educated in the necessary agronomy and processing techniques the farmers can, not only protect their staple food crops but also, collectively, produce an additional cash crop.
The Harmony For Elephants project specifically revolves around the production of an evocative fine art book, with photographs and information documenting African elephants and elephant conservation, accompanied by a tailored CD album containing music from renowned musicians such as former ‘Genesis’ guitarists, Anthony Philips and Steve Hackett.
Having successfully raised the necessary funds, and with a lot of hard work and dedication from the team, the primary objective of launching in time for Christmas 2016 was successfully met. The books (2 sizes) plus the CD are now available for purchase and continue to raise funds for the 'Elephants for Africa' charity. For more information please visit the project’s Facebook page
