Who we are

We have delivered change programmes and projects with and without technology as an enabler to business change in both public and private sector organisations.  We have supported clients making large scale organisational change from start to finish and have learned many of the pitfalls along the way.  Our experience can help make the difference to your change initiative.

Drawing on this experience, combined with some tried and tested tools and techniques, we will help you to prepare for the challenges that change inevitably brings.

Your expertise lies in your sector and industry, we won’t try and compete with that, though we do have people who are comfortable with the language and culture of different sectors and industries.  IdeaSown will create the environment within which your ideas can flourish and be converted into reality, this ‘environment’ will include a considered combination of tools and techniques, physical space and a structured process – tailored to your particular needs.
