Our approach

Our unique, human-centric approach: Mesh.

Our unique organisational design enables leaders to implement a culture that is primed for Web 3.0. We have developed it by drawing on our extensive experience helping sectors and organisations to digitally transform and through our work defining open practices. The approach provides a catalyst for tools and practices that aid navigation of emerging Web 3.0 technologies, such as artificial intelligence and blockchain. It is formed around the concepts of:

An open, regenerative culture and leadership practices that catalyse the components and connections in the organisation to get the most value out of every part.

A mesh structure formed of granular components that connect, and interact, and that capitalise on the value that can be derived from reusing, remixing and repurposing.

View our work page to see how we have used our approach to help companies, governments, and non-governmental organisations to release value.

Tenets

The tenets...
Express the values that inform the Mesh approach. They are interdependent and inform each other.

Connection prompts knowledge sharing across the organisation and beyond to external stakeholders and communities. Sustainable organisational evolution is aided by connecting components, skills and an ecosystem of support.

Visibility promotes behaviours and processes that aid seeing the unseen, revealing trapped and untapped value and skills through gaining insights to processes creating blockages and revealing opportunities to generate value within the existing infrastructure of the organisation.

Trust is required for individuals and teams to perform at their best and adapt to rapid changes. Ethical behaviour is essential for the organsiation to be trusted by the wider ecosystem.

Lenses

The lenses...
Provide a rounded perspective of the organisation with different vantage points for considering needs and aid a systems thinking approach.
Acronym: COG

Perspective:

  • Leadership team behaviours
  • Individual skills-awareness and behaviours

Perspective:

  • Organisational skills programmes, processes and frameworks
  • Organisational learning culture

Perspective:

  • Wider context and skills requirements of the emerging era
  • Global skills initiatives, developments and standards

 

Conditions

The conditions...
Catalyse (re)generative behaviours and processes and help optimise operations and contribution.
Acronym: ORBITALS

Encompasses practices and cultural norms that promote the open characteristics of adaptability, transparency, inclusivity, collaboration, and community. Structuring elements so they can be reused, remixed and repurposed. 

Prompts a willingness to transform through continuous cycles of change, and to generate and regenerate to remain relevant and be sustainable.

Prompts balancing of different perspectives and needs, such as balancing the needs of the individual with the needs of the organisation and wider stakeholders to achieve sustainable change.

Empowers knowledge building, informed decision-making, the exchange of data, ideas and information, contribution from distributed and potentially decentralised experts, and engagement with communities.

Are key to developing sustainable relationships and partnerships, empowering teams, defining ethical behaviours and enabling a culture of learning and regeneration.

Vital for individuals and organisations to understand where they are now, where they want to go and what skills they need to get there.

A pre-requisite for upskilling, rapid adaptation and regeneration. Enabling the connecting and weaving of distributed knowledge with collaborative learning opportunities enables individuals to learn through the exchange of ideas and provides opportunities for connection, exploration and network formation to aid a sustainable learning culture.

Cultural norms, behaviours and mindsets that will result in sustainable upskilling to regenerate, remain relevant, be resilient and future-proof the organisation.

Within the digital revolution, every organisation has become a technology organisation. It is almost impossible for an organisation to avoid the use of digital technologies in some form or another, with digital technologies having a significant impact on how organisations work, learn and connect.

To date, traditional work models have focused on centralisation, vertically drawn hierarchies, and on-premise and geographic proximity-based workers. These attributes are not well-suited for the increasingly remote and gig-based workforce of the 4th Industrial revolution that is unfolding in real-time.

To effectively pivot and embrace the potential and flexibility of decentralisation, organisations must change how they design their cultures and structures to prime for Web3. While the teams that manage and implement technology often adopt open cultural practices to aid rapid development and deployment, the open, transparent and decentralised nature of Web3 technologies, moves the need for open practices beyond the realm of technology teams to the whole organisation.”
