Our Way of Working

Our organisation design is based upon Agile principles. Our premise is that to thrive in the digital economy, we must shift from traditional processes and organisational models that were designed for the industrial economy. This paradigm shift enables innovation, collaboration and value creation at unprecedented speed, scale, and impact. As a 4IR company, we ‘walk the talk.’


  • We have a “north star” which guides us to be obsessively customer focused and committed to creating value with and for a wide range of other stakeholders.

  • We work through a network of small, empowered teams. We have a strong backbone in the centre, but we've replaced much of the traditional hierarchy with flexible working practices.

  • We use rapid decision and learning cycles. We work in rapid cycles of thinking and doing, breaking work down into small packages, executed at speed.

  • We put people at the heart of culture and leadership, engaging and empowering everyone in the organisation to create value quickly, collaboratively, and effectively.

  • We use next-generation-enabling technology. We radically rethink their underlying technologies to support quick iterations, higher deployment velocity, and flexibility through new practices and tools.
