Who are you?

You’re one of thousands of people working each day to improve the physical, social and natural infrastructure that supports our society. But you’re special.

What we do

Surviving not thriving? Feeling overwhelmed, even a little paralysed? How do you create the path forward?
It’s hard work in public or private enterprise. Changing market conditions, social expectation and technologies undermine your business model. You’re trying to gain the authority to act, the resources you need, and stakeholder support. Yet while people expect outcomes, you’re challenged to do more with less. We help you make the key choices that enable you to rise through the complexity with a contemporary, practical strategy – working from capital allocation to change management – and always with an eye to practical execution.

You’re concerned a key initiative is off-track and could fail, despite your people’s hard work.
We stress test your plans to resolve ‘wicked’ business and project problems, identifying and resolving gaps in thinking or approach that are critical to success. Our service typically involves a collaborative review process including refining the problem statement, enriching the problem context, testing the program logic, leveraging past wisdom, and specifying the required further work. We get people and programs back on track.

Everyone’s talking collaboration but your relationships are transactional. What value could you unlock?
Today, a wider range of stakeholders has a genuine influence over your success. By enabling a deeper appreciation of clients, business partners, suppliers and other stakeholders, we facilitate more productive G2B and B2B relationships. We can assist, even with initiation and cultivation of bankable projects that win client, community and investor support.

Your project plans tick the mandatory boxes but still carry many risks, lack investor appetite, and get stalled.
We facilitate the deliberate design of projects to eliminate key risks and maximise the immediate and ongoing return on investment. It involves establishing the business context for the project, placing the project in its wider context, resolving stakeholder influences and generating designs solutions and delivery paths. We create smarter, cheaper projects by design.

You know you need to innovate to survive, but it seems so risky. How do you make progress quickly and safely?
Rapid changes in market conditions, entry of new and alternative competitors, and new technologies are combining to threaten your existing capabilities and service offerings. We assist you to create and manage portfolios of innovative customer-focused solutions, inspiring the ideation process, facilitating rapid market testing, then translating them to real work and sustained profits.

Data, data everywhere – but what data delivers maximum value in driving performance improvement?
Rising investor, institutional and social expectations, coupled with the explosion in enabling technology, is driving greater accountability to prove the efficiency of operations and delivery of outcomes. What data can you afford to collect and analyse? How can you present that data to drive better decisions and action? We help you answer these questions, identifying the rich vein of data that can be collected once but used many times to answer critical business decisions while enabling new value capture possibilities.

You’ve seen your people inspired to do so much better – but can they repeat it?
Your people have a wealth of experience, skills and insight just waiting to be unleashed. Innergise can give them an experience of a new way of working, of thinking together and designing solutions rather than following the business-as-usual process that delivered business-as-usual results. We can help them repeat their success by translating some of the powerful insights and techniques we’ve learnt to them. With a tailored training program that engages them in shaping more productive business processes, your team can be equipped to sustain a higher level of performance.

You need people to think and create together but can’t bear the thought of another workshop.
Teamwork and collaboration are central to today’s work environment, whether in government, business or the not-for-profit sector. People spend much of their time in meetings and workshops – so much so that some people dread the thought of “another workshop”. Many clients describe workshops designed and facilitated by Innergise as “totally different” – because they are genuinely engaging, insight-generating, focused and amazingly productive. This is because we design each workshop to meet our client’s specific needs, leveraging years of experience and relevant insights from behavioural science.

Systems thinking
is at the heart of how we work.

You’ll gain a new way of seeing problems
and designing solutions.
