We had a great idea addressing a real need, delivered in a way that reimagined the traditional business model. We pivoted several times before pivoting became a fashionable term and invested in online collaboration before it was a thing. We’ve worked around the world on complex challenges, with different cultures, in industries that we knew little about. We’ve experienced upturns and downturns, moments of great joy and stress. Throughout it all, we refined our model and kept our sense of humour. We do great work with great clients, to deliver exciting change for good.
We have been working with PA Consulting in the UK since early 2019, harnessing synergies of capability and culture to support PA’s UK clients.
An innovation and transformation consultancy, PA consists of over 3,000 specialists in consumer, defence and security, energy and utilities, financial services, government, health and life sciences, manufacturing, and transport. PA people are strategists, innovators, designers, consultants, digital experts, scientists, engineers and technologists, operating globally from offices across the UK, US, Europe and the Nordics.
Our extensive tools, resources and methodologies, form the foundation of the PA ‘Social Change System’. This, combined with PA’s exceptional people in Operational Performance Improvement, has proven to be a powerful partnership.
In 2017 we joined the New Zealand All of Government Consultancy Services panels for Business Change and Human Resources.
Working with Government agencies provides unique challenges and opportunities. Often agencies are governed by regulations with a high level of expectation and public scrutiny. This can lead to a compliant and risk averse culture which stymies innovation and reduces engagement.
However, there is also passion for the purpose of the agency. We harness this and empower people to find solutions that are practical and pragmatic within the constraints of the regulatory framework.
