Upgrade your Team

Across all of our work, we have identified patterns and plays which immediately unlock better value for teams which we have found to be repeatable across changing contexts. We introduce a better way as a pilot in one month, show your team how to measure its impact and we can scale it across teams when it works. (From R185,000 ex VAT for a one-month pilot).

Why Upgrade the Way Your Organisation Works?

Team Design - South Africa

90% of companies are confronting problems so complex that teams are essential to solving them¹.

We work with teams to improve their ability to solve complex problems by introducing new ways of working, mindsets and capabilities into their on-going work streams. In so doing we adapt and naturalise the methods of design-thinking and lean and principles of agile.

The investment in teams pays off. People with a design element in their work were on average 41% more productive than average¹ and IDEO found that organisations that foster a culture of strong purpose and design sensibility outperform the S&P by 303% and 211%, respectively².

"Very few times in business, do you get to participate in a process that can change the course of your business. That is exactly what INQUISITION did for us."

Reinard du Plessis – GM Marketing at ATKV

"Inquisition’s practical, implementable approach enabled our team to learn new skills and apply them within a very quick timeframe. Inquisition encouraged us to become far more conscious of data and results in our approach, and also helped us see how we could build regular testing and experiments into our activities."
