Transform People Capability

Most HR/L&D Managers are faced with the challenge to greatly enhance the INNOVATION CAPABILITY of leaders and the people across levels and functions of the Organisation. However, they struggle to find a holistic approach.
Lateral thinking is not the only skill needed to succeed with Innovation.
What We Do

Breakthrough Thinking skills
The skill to map & breakthrough Mental Model Boundaries to find radically new perspectives & solutions.

The skill to discover new Market Opportunities
For Breakthrough Insighting, Insight Dialogue is a Mature Erehwon tool to facilitate the discovery of unarticulated needs -customer /market. And The 6 Horizon spectrum of Insight sources is a second tool to enable Breakthrough Insighting.

The Impact of Our Work
What Our Clients Say
Guido H. PETIT
“It was more substantial and gave a good and to the point overview of the causes and types of gravitational forces that exist in many companies (based on extensive research you have done over the past few years) and that substantially affects innovation effectiveness. The uniqueness of your approach is that you make clear from the beginning that overcoming these gravitational forces is a question of changing the mindset in people’s heads. The many examples you have given as well as the collaborations you have setup with various companies worldwide prove that your approach works.”
“I found the session very thought-provoking. The energy, enthusiasm, clarity of examples was very good and to the point. I thought that the way in which innovation was presented, as ideas rather than specific activities, helped to set a mindset that can be applied to situations, and makes it clearer to define what ‘innovation’ is. I appreciate the fact that he gave many examples from different industries, was humorous and had 5 well-spelled out points. The content is riveting and highly relevant to our culture”.

“I have engaged with Erehwon both personally and professionally on several projects for Savola Foods, and they have managed to change the way we view the world both personally and professionally. The competitive edge of Erehwon over any other consultancy we dealt with is that they engage with you and the organization as a solid part of the team with equal if not higher stakes than you do as their customer. They work with huge passion and come with a wealth of diverse experiences collected throughout the years across the world.”
