Things change.

And at the heart of change, lies opportunity.

About Us

We’ve seen what happens to businesses that embrace change. And we like working with them to master it.

Our Founder and Director, Josephine Otimi, leads a team of inventive advisory, recruitment and coaching specialists, with decades of combined global experience, well-versed in her understanding of the discipline of change. Together, we have transformed some of Adelaide’s most influential businesses. And we’re keen to speak to you about yours.

We are forging new ground with a resolute belief in the skills and discipline required to imagine, mobilise and embed change in organisations, to realise growth, and fulfil their commercial potential.

Business Capabilities

Every company has their fields of specialty; we are no exception:

Change Design and Architecture

Change Design – the ultimate suite of strategist skills. Our team of consultants work to gain understanding and clearly define a strategic problem that your organisation faces, framing it as a question, and brainstorming possibilities to solve it.

Change Production

Change Production is looking at your organisational strategy with an arial view. Where pure project management focuses on executing a series of pre-defined tasks, change production takes into account the broader picture – considering the what and why, to determine the when and how. Every organisation requires a bespoke approach, the ramifications of every move can often make widespread ripple impact in other projects/departments – change production sees and adjusts to these effects in real time.

Change Management

Change Management is all about people. Holding the responsiblity for identifying, implementing, and embedding changes to processes, systems, and technology to enable an organisation to grow or undergo a significant change – all through our Evolve human-centric lens, that puts people first.

Change Analysis

Change Analysis is all about the details. Working alongside stakeholders, providing stakeholder analysis as well as change delivery outcomes, we dissect and examine process and outcomes. We work in areas of communications development, identifying change impacts, implementation activities, and coordinating readiness assessments, all with the goal of motivating success at each stage in the lifecycle of business change.

Our Ethos

There are tangible benefits seen when organisations value their most important asset; their people.

Approaching strategic goals and business operations through the lens of an understanding of your company culture and your teams approach to business execution all ensures a company will thrive into the future. We’ve mastered the skills and disciplines required to imagine, mobilise and embed these changes with an innovative delivery system that works.

Our processes and methods are tried and tested, yet each pathway is tailored to suit your organisations unique goals and circumstances. Our goal as a trusted advisor and partner is to equip organisations with the knowledge, mindset, support and leadership required to keep up with the rapid pace of change today.
