McMaster & Brown

We provide you with the tools, thinking, systems and principles to truly transform your organisation.

Instead of developing your people through personal transformation, hoping it will improve the business, transform your organisation to have the conditions for everybody to thrive and exceed your expectations!

New Thinking

Connecting with the new thinking that has happened, is happening today and will happen in the future is required because since the beginning of the industrial revolution thinking and technologies exist that make the thinking that we inherited obsolete. Thinking has matched what's happening but no longer - it is falling further and further behind because current thinking is no match for the emergent technologies, which includes the 'technology of language'.

New Organsiation

New organisation is required if we are to be able to deal with specific problems in time. The application of technology needs to be handled by teams rather than by the whole organisation. This new hybrid organisational approach is about creating a future of new possibilities and not trying to fix the problems of the past.

New Technology

Every new technology has a new language to match it. There is the technology that most people think of and the technology of language itself. We need to understand the emergent evolution of technology.

New technology on its own is useless until it serving human intelligence or performance.

Technology without purpose solves problems that don’t exist.

"“If the nature of the work is properly appreciated and applied, it will stand in the same relation to the higher faculties as food is to the physical body. It nourishes and enlivens the higher being and urges one to produce the best one is capable of. … It furnishes an excellent background for (one) to display one’s values and develop one’s personality.”"

J.C. Kumarappa
Indian Philosopher and Economist - 1892-1960

Working Together

Instead of trying to fix the problems of the past, we take a different approach.  We show you how to create a future for your organisation free of the current problems.

In every case, a 'champion' took a stand and created a small team made up of different levels and knowledge bases that performed what could not be accomplished without strong cooperation.

The right time and the only time for Organisation Design 2.0 is when a leader emerges and decides to take a stand for a future that does not yet exist. We can help you bring the possible future into existence.

Your Next Steps

If your aim is to produce extraordinary results and get the best from your teams, then McMaster & Brown’s “30 Minute Organisation Design Quickstart” is the best next step to take. We have designed this call to take place over zoom or the telephone if you prefer, either with you individually or with your top staff members. Here is what we WILL accomplish together in this fast-paced, zero-nonsense session:

Forthcoming Book

The attempts people have made to change their organisation's fortunes have made little difference. From our point of view, all of the solutions out there are trying to solve the problems that businesses face today that were created in the past.

If your motivation is to achieve a powerful vision, make a difference or engage in a serious endeavour that involves the need for people to make their best contribution, then this is the right book for you. Why? 

It is because few, very few, organizational change efforts last.  Even with the best, such efforts fail to achieve sustainability.  Surveys show that almost all are assessed as failures in a relatively short period of time.  Why is this?  We assert that it's due to failure of the organizational structure - not the people.  What is missing is an understanding of what it takes to sustain something which has no history to draw from. So to make your powerful vision sustainable, you need a new approach.

Instead of trying to fix the problems of the past, we take a different approach.  We want to show you how to create a future for your organisation free of the current problems.

Our approach is not a trivial difference. It is a genuine transformational approach, a fundamentally different way of being in business, that demands we all behave differently - relating to our organisation, colleagues, customers and, ultimately, ourselves.

"“The Buddhist point of view takes the function of work to be at least threefold: to give a (one) a chance to utilize and develop one’s faculties; to enable one to overcome one’s own ego-centeredness by joining with other people in a common task; and to bring forth the goods and services needed for a becoming existence. …. To organize work in such a manner that it becomes meaningless, boring, stultifying, or nerve-wracking for the worker would be little short of criminal; it would indicate a greater concern with goods than with people …”"
