- Significant revenue goal – which will not be achieved through incremental improvement
- Need to develop solutions in 12-14 months
- Developing the innovation approach
- Creating commercially viable solutions with fewer resources in a more competitive market
- Scanning of existing technologies that are ‘off the shelf’ is not delivering the expected results
“Phil has been supporting Guide dogs’ change programme for 18 months now and has done a superb job. He is a personable, professional, resolute and highly competent operator who has helped us engineer the most succesful (and complex) change programme I have ever witnessed. He has been a pleasure, and an inspiration, to work with, and I can strongly recommend him to any large organisation looking to reshape under a new strategy” Richard Leaman, Chief Executive, Guide Dogs
“Being used to a variety of different creative problem solving tools and techniques, Biomimetics offers both a fascinating and refreshing addition. Phil’s work in this area is outstanding. Not only is he able to very confidently describe and “teach” the theory, he is also very adept at applying it in real life situations. In an age when we are increasingly reconsidering our impact on our environment what better way of looking for innovative solutions than with the help of nature itself” Wayne Batty, Northern Rail
Set up in 2004 by Phil Richardson (ex IBM, Deloitte & BUPA) Thoughtcrew is a boutique change management consultancy based in Bath, Somerset. Our focus is to help you bring about growth for your business. We have a great deal of experience in making change happen and have many successes across a wide range of businesses. We tailor our approach to each project so don’t have a one size fits all method. Instead we focus on outcomes – the difference you want to make rather than the activities that need to be done. It’s why making a difference is more important than on-time and to-budget. We see these as quality issues rather then what should drive projects. Our way of working is to get well paid for what we do and deliver real value for money. And that has worked for us so far with our clients.
