Become an organisation of the future

The organisations that will thrive in the next 20 years will look unrecognisable to the ones we see today. Organisations that don’t adapt will cease to exist.

Expectations of organisations from consumers and employees are profoundly shifting due to concerns about the health of our planet and our people as well as demands for a fairer and more inclusive society. These expectations have been accelerated by greater access globally to information. In response, organisations need to adapt if they are to survive and thrive. What will organisations of the future look like?

They will be entirely purpose-led, existing for the good of society and providing products and services for tomorrow’s circular economy. Driving that purpose will be leaders who will be constantly evolving, fully aware and courageous in their actions. In turn, these leaders will foster an empowered internal culture, one where all employees feel included, valued and trusted. The organisation of the future will be a conscious one, which has deep partnerships with civil society, governments and other businesses. Due to the volatile nature of global economies and our society, its strategy will be wholly agile, adaptive and always responsive.

Why partner with BRIDGE

We look after the whole journey. We act as the guide rails: from designing the journey to shifting mindsets, from bringing in the subject-matter experts to measuring impact. We act as orchestrators for all components, delivering the necessary transformation. Amongst them our consultants bring over 1000 years of experience in facilitating these programmes.

We enable the senior leaders to reinvent the organisation themselves. We equip leaders with the skills required to solve these challenges and lead this change themselves. We transform mindsets, upskill and enable our clients to sustain this change without us. Unlike other consultancies, we create no dependency.

We teach senior leaders how to leverage the most progressive and powerful business tools in the industry in order to help identify challenges as well as potential solutions. These tools support financial and investment modelling, customer ethnography, business model design, design thinking, customer journey design, culture change and organisational design.

We tap into our network of expert partners. We have developed a remarkable network of partners around the world over the last 30 years. These partners are exceptionally skilled in their individual fields. We utilise this global network to bring in the expertise as and when required. Expertise may be needed across a broad range of industries, in areas such as cybersecurity, intelligent automation, zero waste and next-generation technology platforms.

HOW DO WE GET STARTED?

When I meet the client, the first thing I ask is: what is their dream and highest aspirations for the organisation? What do they want it to look like when they pass it on to the next generation? What impact do they want to have made in the world? This creates a sense of higher purpose, inspiration and awakened possibility.

Common challenges we hear

  • We want to be beacons in the world on gender-equality and D&I – and we are not moving the needle quickly enough.
  • Our employees are very stressed – and the joy seems to have been lost; we want to create a place where our people feel loved and purposeful and can be themselves.
  • We are sadly experiencing fatalities and serious injuries in our workplace – our injury and fatality rate needs to get to zero, and fast.
  • We need to redevelop our products that eliminate waste and single-use plastic, and we need to move steadily towards a net-zero CO2 impact in the world – but are lacking fresh ideas.
  • We need to get on the front-foot on becoming climate resilient – climate change is adding significant cost in our supply chains and we are always on the back-foot on this.
  • Our products and services are becoming less and less needed and commoditised; we need to create products and services that the world will really need – but we seem to be stuck.
  • We need to become the leading player in digital experience but we are moving so slowly and lacking innovation.
  • We have no idea what intelligent automation and machine learning are going to do to our business; our organisation seems to be only focusing on today and not thinking about tomorrow's.
