Thriving in an age of technology-driven change isn’t (ironically) about the technology. It's about culture, which means it's about people. We can help your business become change-ready.

It starts with a conversation
Some organisations know they need to make changes to rise to future challenges but don’t know where to start. Others think they’re on the right track - perhaps they’ve even found ‘a solution’ - but interrogating that solution reveals bigger issues that must be addressed.
We’re very good at asking ‘Why?’ and getting to the heart of your organisational challenge - to the place where tangible and sustainable change can happen. We widen the lens - so you can see your organisation in the context of major global trends: demographic, social and environmental, disruptors or emerging technologies in your sector, new business models. Then, you can identify what’s really important.
Isn’t this just
No. We’re change coaches, not change managers. Shifting your organisation from one mode to another is too slow for the pace of change you’ll be facing - and frequently only semi-successful, as the focus is on changing processes not mindsets. Change management gets you from A to B. Change coaching gets you from a to wherever you want or need to go. We’re not about solving your problems but getting your people to solve them. We help you build sustainable, in-house innovation skills, agility and capabilities for continuous learning.
Established by education futurist Frances Valintine (CNZM), Tech Futures Lab is New Zealand’s only privately-owned graduate school, specifically designed to prepare people and organisations for the future of work. We don’t want New Zealand businesses to survive technology-driven change. We want you to thrive.
Our approach is based on robust, evidence-based knowledge. We’re about empowering organisations to create change that sticks; with no lag; no prerequisite investment in software or tools. We make agility part of your organisational DNA.
What will this look like for my organisation?
That will depend on your objectives. Making things happen means moving beyond quick fixes, one-size-fits-all solutions and box-ticking exercises. We will tailor-make an approach to suit your needs.
