Business Aspect - A Fresh Perspective



Welcome to the final issue of BA Perspectives for 2015.  This month Dr. Richard Eden PSM provides us with a leader's perspective on the most important ingredients to foster a culture of innovation.  

We share a client story in this same theme of innovation - the QFish Public Portal to deliver ‘open, transparent data to the community’ in Queensland.

You can read interviews with Canberra based consultant, Dan Woodrow and Sydney based principal consultant, Ian Palmer. We are also pleased to announce the appointment of a number of new consultants across Australia including Ian Gordon, Richard Eden, Paul Green, Murray Andrews and Sven Wittchen.

As the year of our tenth anniversary comes to a close we are buoyed by the innovation and transformation we are seeing at client sites across Australia. Thank you once again for being part of our first decade and the journey ahead as we continue to enable industry and government to innovate and thrive in an age of digital disruption and business transformation.
