After almost 20 years working with senior executives around the world on the design and execution of their boldest ambitions, we at wheretofromhere? have learnt a lot about innovation and successful business transformations. We have now brought these learnings together in the Parkour framework: an innovation engine that delivers transformation outcomes.

In a business world that is challenged by a wave of change and disruption that is hard to ignore and even harder to manage, Parkour enables the only innovation that matters: one that delivers real gains for customers, frees up employees and drastically increases the likelihood of business viability in the long run. It also helps Senior Executives recognise obsolescence signs of the current business model early, and fulfil their stewardship duty towards all stakeholders by creating the right context to unlock human potential in their organisation, and get everyone ready to co-design and lead business transformation initiatives together, while keeping the core business ticking.

Below are some of the challenges our clients explored in their own Parkour:

· How to create the operational and cultural conditions to triple the size of a business in Asia-Pacific?

· How to re-design the way we do business to enhance customer experience while driving productivity?

· How to develop new business models in an industry being severely disrupted by regulations and technology?

Our first iteration of the Parkour website is now live. It will give you an overview of why we think Parkour is so critical to face that wave of change and disruption, seize the opportunity it creates and transform organisations with speed and agility.

What Parkour should look like in your context, with your business objectives, is entirely up to you. And we at wheretofromhere? are here to help, so have a look, reach out for questions, feedback and to start a conversation on how we could co-design the right Parkour for you.
