Align on a strategy for profound transformation

A series of workshops that go beyond theoretical strategising to define your bold future vision for company growth and plan short-term initiatives that kickstart your journey to achieving it.

This is designed for a leadership team that wants to establish and articulate a clear and realistic strategy for their organisation to drive momentum.​

How it works

Applying an exponential mindset, we zoom out to explore what you want your business to be known for in 5-10 years’ time, and how it can best serve evolving customer needs; then we zoom in to focus on actionable initiatives for quick wins in the short- to medium-term.

What this means for your business

The business will have established a clear ‘Northstar’ to guide strategic decisions, and identified short-term initiatives for accelerating and measuring progress towards that aspirational vision.

Lack of strategic thinking is a barrier to transformation

30% of businesses highlighted a lack of strategic thinking as a barrier to technology investment in our recent survey of top IT decision-makers.

For all of the past decade’s investment in slick emerging technologies, the majority of businesses have failed to scale-up and industrialise for a truly transformative impact.

Why outside perspectives matter

“No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it” is a quote often attributed to Albert Einstein, but we think it applies to our approach too.

In an era of intense disruption and unpredictable markets, it’s natural to get tunnel vision as a company. Bringing a wealth of experience to the table, our team cuts through the fog that may have descended – and we do it with agile and fast-moving communication, bypassing the siloed or slow-moving approach of large consultancy firms.

We’ll immerse ourselves in your business to take you out of your comfort zone with interactive and authentic consulting, taking a holistic view of your opportunities for innovation and the barriers to change.

"Business people don't need to understand how the algorithm works - just what it can do." AI strategist Andrew Burgess offers a dose of reality on TechKnow

Hyperautomation strategy partnership with UiPath
Traditional automation operating models focus on cost reduction over value creation. The result is siloed automation projects that prioritise the tactical over the strategic. UiPath has partnered with Emergence to help their clients map out frameworks that ensure buy-in from across the organisation, and achieve true scale with end-to-end automation.
“Emergence will help enable more customers to scale-up their existing automation programmes and get new customers to implement hyperautomation.”
