Changing Times

We are living in volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous and disruptive times (VUCAD) that threaten organisations’ survival, but also offer tremendous opportunities for prosperity. Organisations are facing increasing consumer and stakeholder demands, driven by various socioeconomic crises, game-changing technologies, shifts in the geopolitical landscape, disruptive market developments, and increasing societal and environmental pressures. These developments call for fundamental change in the way business is done within the organisation, with stakeholders, and within the overall context. Sustainable Growth Associates and their partners are experts in helping you to navigate these rapidly changing times.

Systems View

Disruptions at all context levels – Political, Economic, Social, Technical, Legal and Environmental (PESTLE) – will go on. Leaders who take a systems view will be better prepared for the unpredictable, are more agile in their responses, and allow leadership to emerge. Changing from a reductionist to a systems view, focusing on the primacy of relationships and interconnections, challenges all organisations to find and redefine their true purpose. A clear understanding of the “big picture” enables any organisation to recognise the infinite innovation potential of socio-ecological sustainability for a profitable business and as the basis for creating a positive impact. Opportunities for whole-systems thinking are there to be embraced, wherever and whenever they emerge. Sustainable Growth Associates and their partners provide the required insights, methodologies, resources, skills and tools for context-driven and purposeful transformation and strategy development based on a systems view. With us, you can start right now!

What we do

At SGA, we help organisations to become game changers by putting a revitalised purpose at the heart of their innovation strategy and leadership processes. We think and act holistically. Looking at your strategy, operations and leadership from a systems perspective, we are aware of their mission-critical interdependencies. Whether our client’s immediate need or challenge concerns projects and/or programmes for people and leadership development, operational efficiency (house-in-order programme), building innovation capabilities, or defining masterplans for mid- to long-term strategic change, we build our work on a science-based system understanding that is applicable to business. Our services focus on mid-sized and larger companies operating in but not limited to the following industries: chemical, clothing, manufacturing, electronics, energy supply (utilities), environmental technology, automotive and mobility, high-tech and engineering, IT and telecommunications.
