Setting up Partners in Change was a dream, based on our belief, itself founded on many years’ experience, that there was a better way of delivering change. The word ‘partner’ says it all – we partner with our consultants and associates; we partner with our clients; and we partner with the wider change community. We genuinely believe in ‘getting better by the day’, sharing the effort, the risk, and the benefits.
My background includes line and consulting roles, always with a focus on improving performance, whether through technology enabled change, organisational and process changes, or most often, a combination. I love working with teams who care for each other and their customers, and who strive to improve, and are open-minded about doing so. We have a mantra that the ‘how’ is at least as important as the ‘what’. A piece of feedback I am especially proud of came from a Director of a major transformation programme, who commented, ‘I was amazed by how much he [Dave] got from the team’.
Every interaction I have with our partners really is a joy, even the tough ones, because they either demonstrate the progress we’ve made, or they highlight another opportunity to do even better.
