Emergence Partners launches to help businesses navigate a new world of emerging technology

By Press Releases

Consulting firm will partner with clients to transform their businesses using disruptive technologies

London, United Kingdom – 15th May, 2020: Emergence Partners has today launched to provide strategic counsel to businesses as they navigate increasingly widespread digital transformation across a variety of industries. The company was formed by an executive team comprising former business leaders at giants from Accenture to Serco, to capitalise on a gap in the market for a new breed of management consultants dedicated to helping businesses incorporate emerging technology. Recent research indicates a staggering 85% of workers do not believe business leaders can succeed in managing disruption, while half of business leaders lack essential digital skills.

Emergence was founded with the specific goal of supporting companies through the so-called fourth industrial revolution, inspiring profound change in immediate and long-term business outcomes. Although the digital economy is predicted to produce 60 million jobs by 2025, almost 1 in 3 business leaders admit to falling behind when it comes to adopting new technologies such as Robotic Process Automation, Machine Learning or Automatic Speech Recognition. It is therefore clear that profound mind-set change is required in order for business leaders and management to fully capitalise on the spread of these disruptive forces. By taking an agile, iterative approach focused primarily on business objectives, organisations stand to see from immediate, significant results from such a shift.

The company aims to provide organisations with a broad range of flexible services that can be adapted to individual clients’ needs, including strategic process design, technology immersion, strategic roadmap development and executive education & coaching. With an emphasis on the importance of exponential thinking over incremental strategies in fostering long-term scalability and growth, the firm is dedicated to acting as a vital go-between for the technology sector and the rising number of companies investing heavily in the industry.

Spearheaded by CEO David Poole, a highly experienced business leader who has held senior positions at Capgemini and PwC, Emergence’s team of Founding Partners identified the need for an emerging technology-specific consultancy that addresses these discrepancies head-on. The consultancy will provide ambitious businesses with the necessary tools to embrace and benefit fully from digitalisation, both improving human wellbeing and gaining a crucial competitive advantage in the process.

Commenting on the launch, Poole said:

“A large proportion of failed attempts at tech adoption today can be traced back to a few key causes. All too often organisations look to implement technology without a wider consideration for the long-term business objectives it will help to achieve. Without a long-term vision for how the changes will inspire sustainable transformation, businesses will never be able fully tap into the exponential benefits these technologies promise.”

He continued: “The recent pandemic has highlighted the lack of corporate resilience to major disruption. There is a lack of resilience framework planning in place across organisations – this is precisely where Emergence comes in. We need to talk about business resilience instead of recovery. Combining a wealth of experience from implementing technological change at multinational companies, we hope to be a catalyst for change for business leaders across the globe.”
