Reflecting on my year in Catalyst, I notice something interesting in how we approach our work and client relationships. Different from how I experienced management consultants in my past life as a corporate employee. On the one hand, we don’t want to work with the same clients, on the same work, for years on end. On the other hand, we don’t want to be “hit men” blasting in for a short, sharp session or two before disappearing into the night, as it were.

What we want is to create meaningful, value-adding partnerships, where our clients have the capability to sustain changes for themselves. We’re constantly exploring how to develop and transfer skills and knowledge sustainably, using the principles of gamified, disruptive, digitally-enabled, accelerated learning. It’s handy having Debbie Craig, co-author of “Accelerated learning for breakthrough results” as our MD! Read more here: www.accelerated.co.za

 

We’ve established partnerships with game-changers such as the innovative digital engagement and blended learning provider, UMU (www.umu.com), and simdustry’s Talent Management simulation board game, SIMTalent. We’re always on the lookout for new opportunities. Currently on our radar are Matt White’s Enterprise Engagement (www.enterprise-engagement.com), and Per Lagerstrom’s Sinequanon (www.sqnway.com).
