We work together with our
clients to create the conditions for long-term purposeful performance.
This means giving attention to the system of processes, behaviours, mindsets and shared assumptions from which performance emerges.
This kind of magic is highly visible in professional sport, where the demands of fierce competition have driven the development of robust human systems of learning and improvement. Our craft has been developed in business but is inspired and informed by our intimate working relationship with Bath Rugby.
Creating purposeful businesses is important work. Today’s complexity and uncertainty needs a different response from the past. Our organisations were built for simpler times where efficiency and consistency ruled. To support a sustainable world and a fair society, we need more purposeful and adaptable organisations.
While the stakes are high, our work is practical. We choose to work in the middle of the messiness of organisational life, where we focus on what is possible for business leaders today while nudging towards a different tomorrow.
With complex problems there are multiple routes to useful solutions and many starting points – some of which are listed below. We designed our work for early business impact (the what) as well as the improvement of the performance system (the how) and fuelled by higher purpose and direction (the why).
To get started we have two propositions or ‘doorways’ – GROWTH which begins at the top of the list and works down, and PURPOSE which goes from bottom to top. However, the world isn’t that neat, so we commence work in the place where the need is most pressing – start anywhere, follow everywhere.
Forming strategies for growth - deciding which markets and which products.
Implementing new systems and processes for revenue generation.
Designing new ways of organising to unlock greater empowerment.

Develop your System with Fp Consult - When consulting with single organisation, we typically start with an audit of the current situation - an Organisation Performance Review (OPR). Each OPR is tailored to a client’s situation, but is built on a model of organisational performance grounded in research and shaped by the performance systems of professional sport.
Build your Squad with Fp Squad - We know the power of diverse perspectives, so we convene leaders, managers and professionals from different organisations to work and learn together. Taking on strategic problems while building new capabilities.
Stretch your Insight with Fp Labs - Sometimes we need the concentrated exploration of a new perspective or others’ insights to spark a change. We bring the latest thinking on critical issues and create a space for us all to create new learning.
