HS2

HS2 Ltd established a programme to save £1.5 through more innovative and smarter ways of working. We worked with the programme team on 13 workshops using the Solutions Focus Approach, adapting it to the different outcomes required in each workshop. The team achieved their target. Listen to the Programme Manager explain how the Solution Focus Approach helped and how it might help you.

 

Enterprise Ireland

We worked with payment systems’ consultants Edgar Dunn & Co. to increase the innovation capability of seven small to medium sized enterprises in the Republic of Ireland, for Enterprise Ireland. The programme met with scepticism at the start from the company CEO’s. However, following the programme, all agreed it had been of great value because it did help them develop their innovation capability and developed innovative and practical propositions. This is the crucial measure of any innovation programme. Read our article Innovate in Flow to read insights on how you might innovate more effectively.

Openreach

We worked with Openreach, a business within BT Group, on several workshops, in particular for one major change programme. This programme had been underperforming and team morale was low. A new programme director asked us to assist him to help put the progarmme back on track and we used a Solution Focus approach to do this, adapted to suit the outcomes required. The team were soon back remotivated and back on track and the programme rolled out successfully.
