A consultant, trainer, speaker and writer focusing on strategic and innovative management and organisation of people. Now delivering advanced level capability development for HR practitioners through my digital Strategic HR Academy.

I often help businesses gain competitive advantage through the creation of human and social capital supported by effective leadership, organisation design, HR and management practices, organisation development interventions, the use of digital and social media tools, and strategic approaches to workforce analytics etc.

I also help business leaders and HR teams develop their own strategic capabilities.

My experience includes 30 years in engineering, IT, change management and HR (including as an HR / OD Director).

I am based in the UK but work globally and I spend a lot of time in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and elsewhere. I increasingly support organisations virtually too.

Specialties: A strategic perspective across the breadth of HR.

Human and social capital

December 20, 2018
In my last 12 years of blogging I don’t think I’ve ever provided a list of predictions for the next year, as despite the increasing rate of change, I don’t think things change that much / that quickly, and prefer to focus on the bigger, more strategic issues which are relatively stable over decades (still) rather than the more superficial opportunities, usually resulting from new technology, that perhaps do shift more rapidly.

Evolution of Organization Models

July 23, 2018
The core idea behind part 1 of The Social Organization is that connections and relationships between people working in an organization are now so important that they need to be included in our organization models, along with the people who have these relationships. I therefore present the Organization Prioritization Model, or OPM, as a basis for better and more modern organization design.
