Innovation Consulting

We are far from traditional consultants – we aim to build the conditions and capability so individuals, teams and organisations can continue to work in new and different ways that brings people into the heart of shaping new and better solutions.

Our Innovation consulting supports partners to solve complex problems through rigorous innovation across services, organisations, policy and systems.

Shifting complex social problems requires innovation at many levels and across many systems and silos. Over the past ten years we’ve developed approaches, methods and tools that can be used individually or in combination to address significant levers for change.

We’ve also employed and developed content knowledge and understanding of the challenges and opportunities for innovation in specific sectors and contexts.

Through our work and partnerships, our processes and perspective continue to evolve.

“To influence positive outcomes, we work with our clients to find the best-fit approach.”

The Innovation Consulting team


We are united in the commitment to develop new and better ways to build social and economic prosperity for all.


We find what works and how best to share it

Innovation nearly always exists in service systems, it’s just often hiding. We help identify exceptional practice and why it works. Then we use this intelligence to spread this practice.


We create, design and test effective services

We can help you use design to develop innovative service and business models that improve outcomes and thrive financially.


We help government use design processes

We can support you to work with existing evidence, identify opportunities, test assumptions through prototyping, evaluate innovation and build your team’s co-design capability.


We facilitate systems change and place-based initiatives

Today’s social challenges are too complex for a single policy or service to fix. We facilitate systems change and place-based initiatives that catalyse diverse stakeholder to take action on significant system levers.


We design and facilitate funding programs

Innovation funds are scarce and must be spent wisely to change lives. We can help you manage the risk of your investment and accelerate the development of innovations to have the greatest impact.


We build the conditions and capabilities for innovation

Innovation is in demand, but it takes specialist skills and certain conditions to make it work well. We can equip your team with tailored training through webinars, workshops and one-to-one support to make the social impact you seek a reality.
