We work with clients who…

  • are only innovative when your customers ask you to be
  • concerned you can’t see what your R&D team is achieving
  • are kept awake at night by fear of failure and risks to your business
  • are focused so much on today that plans for tomorrow are overwhelmed
  • are not confident enough to invite partners into your business (and definitely not competitors)

hgkc have helped us invent a whole new way to manage and communicate about our innovation projects – BAU, “the pond”, Blue-sky, horizons, Game Plans and RACI techniques have enabled us to focus on the key projects and direction for our innovation at TasteTech.

The Founder’s Mentality - Chris Zook & James Allen

The Founders Mentality: How to overcome the predictable crises of growth

Every great business founder has a story to tell, but in reality, every business has two stories: the external story that plays out in the marketplace and is about shareholder returns, market share, profitable growth, acquisitions, awards; and the internal story that is about building the business, the culture of the workforce, systems and processes, learning from experiences - good and bad, change and opportunity, the emotional roller-coaster of wins and losses.

Chris Zook and James Allen discovered, through research, that when companies fail, 90% of the time the root causes are internal.
