Disruption and Opportunity
People create value for organisations and customers through what they do together.
But multiple trends are currently disrupting work, workforces, and workplaces.
People will need to update their capabilities to reflect increasing complexity, and learn to adapt as work evolves.
Organisations will need to adapt how performance is supported.
My approach to developing capabilities and skills benefits both.

Tiny Triumph Experiments
A 'Tiny Triumph' learning experience is a 10-week introduction to personal development for anyone who wants an MBA-type experience in short bursts - especially those in operational roles.
Tiny Triumph experiments are small, practical things to try and learn from.
'Triumph' does not imply success. The triumph is that someone has the courage to do something in the first place.
Acquiring new skills and capabilities is not a spectator sport - you have to do something to see what you think happened. That's why Tiny Triumph experiments revolve around activities.
•   on your own
•   with work colleagues
•   online with Tiny Triumph peers.
Activities take place in three phases - Diagnose, Do, Develop.
Diagnose - what's happening?
What trends are affecting the business (or are likely to)? How might this affect how things are done? And what could this mean for personal skills and how performance is supported?
The aim is to get a ‘big picture’ view that will spark ideas for possible things to do.
Do something - what's feasible?
Learn how to choose an experiment, plan it, do it, and review it as you go.
And learn how to develop capabilities and skills from the experience.
Develop - what's next?
What are your options for the next Tiny Triumph experiment?
Support for activities
Activities are supported by tools from the Tiny Triumph Toolbox, topics (create your own 'curriculum'), resources, a facilitator, and Tiny Triumph peers.
Tiny Triumph Toolbox
There are a myriad of possible organisational contexts, each with different risks and opportunities linked to how work is changing.
Simple tools (checklists, scorecards, and frameworks) are co-developed with clients to reflect their specific contexts. These are then used to guide Tiny Triumph experiments.

Tiny Triumphs are for you if your work is becoming, or is likely to become, more uncertain and complex - particularly as a result of current disruptive trends.
This could include Chief Executives, HR, Marketing, Finance, or Facilities Directors - people with responsibilities for shaping and implementing company direction.
You are aware of current trends, or already feeling their effects. For example, customer behaviour is changing.
Use Tiny Triumphs to encourage people to share and experiment with ideas on how best to meet customer demands and expectations.
It’s no longer just people with strategic responsibilities who need the ability and confidence to think and act in complex situations.
Tiny Triumphs are for you if:
•   you collaborate across boundaries inside and outside the organisation
•   you are responsible for coordinating the work of other people
•   you face constraints & competing demands
•   you have to make, and be accountable for, tricky decisions
Whether operational or strategic
•   you are committed to taking charge of your professional development
•   you want to integrate this into your work
•   you want to learn from others inside and outside your organisation
