ANN LOngley and Debi Garrod, Something New Together
Something New Together is a design consultancy that helps businesses transform sustainably by responding to existential threats, rapid technological developments, and dynamic customer needs.
We are volatility navigation experts, turbocharging our clients potential for successful innovation and continuous improvement with our proven approach to maximising opportunities by unlocking insight and human creativity.
Many innovation and transformation programmes fail because people are not sufficiently engaged and laser-focused on business and customer outcomes.
We help our clients succeed sustainably by cultivating a customer-obsessed culture — a culture that transcends what any individual or department can achieve on their own.
We work with you to unite your teams and divisions, with everyone collaborating around a shared vision, co-designing a workplace operating model where everyone's role is understood and contribution valued. Like a murmuration of starlings, we get everyone working together in unison, changing patterns when needed.
Standing still is not an option in a volatile world.
We help you move from fragile to agile with confidence by building new muscle memory collectively while getting results. Leap from insight to action, learn by doing, and by understanding how humans work best with the aid of psychology and neuroscience.
