The increasingly competitive landscape in which we do business is always changing. However, more so than ever before, the pace of change is accelerating. To keep up, the modern business needs to do more than just implement continuous improvement programs. They need to innovate.
The Innovation Agents are a training and business consultancy who support medium to large organisations in their change and transformation programs. The Innovation Agents help organisations to implement new business strategies, redesign processes and empower people to support business growth, profitability and sustainability. The approach to innovation focuses on maintaining outcomes and results through a positive business change methodology. This involves discovering strengths in people and process, has a solution focus not problem focus, and fosters collaboration, engagement and customer satisfaction.
The application of Lean Six Sigma and a strengths based approach to business change and innovation can foster engagement via the creation of exceptional processes and customer service experiences in collaboration with employees and stakeholders. Such collaboration fuels positive change, ideas & innovation. As the adage goes – Innovate or die! Innovation goes beyond keeping up to date with technology disruptions and implementing new processes – it requires engaged people.

Speak to Samantha about how she can help design and deliver the right training and consulting programs for your business.
Start by talking to Samantha about the strengths based behavioural assessments that she can facilitate and administer for your business via the Business DNA Discovery process.
Business DNA® is a proprietary solution designed to holistically and reliably discover the behavioural talents and communication styles of leaders, employees and customers or clients and then develop how they are performing for improving Business Performance. The outcome is that the leaders of the business will be able to improve the engagement of their employees, clients and customers through knowing what motivates them and by identifying natural instinctive behavioural talents. A focus on natural behaviour provides a reliable predictor of how a person will consistently perform over the longer term using their talents, make decisions with the least stress, respond to different life and work factors that change, and where they will “go to” under pressure.
(Note: Samantha is accredited to coach and deliver Business DNA Behaviour Profiles)
