Deloitte: Centre for the Edge in Australia Launched
June 25, 2012
By Rob Starr, Content Manager, Big4.com
The Australian chapter of the Centre for the Edge – Deloitte’s global applied research and thought leadership development group, has been launched. The business of the Centre for the Edge is to help senior leaders interpret and profit from emerging opportunities that are at the edge of business and technology.
The first publication to be co-marketed by the Australian Centre for the Edge is Scaling Edges: A Pragmatic Pathway to broad internal change. It explores how successful organisations identify opportunities that force them to change and adapt.
The report provides a framework for executives wishing to embark on this difficult, but necessary transformation and introduces three prongs in a pathways framework:
- By focusing on edges, rather than the core of a company, change agents can better identify projects which align with ‘Big Shift’ forces, and are most likely to achieve significant and sustainable returns
- By leveraging external resources rather than internal support, these edges can circumvent the scrutiny and organisational resistance that change initiatives typically meet.
- Accelerating learning, rather than short-term outcomes, can create conduits of transformation that, help the company achieve institutional innovation and build into the opportunities of tomorrow.
The focus for The Centre for the Edge in Australia will involve a combination of Australian-led research topics of unique interest to Australia and Asia Pacific, as well as co-releasing research outputs on topics of universal significance from the US Centre for the Edge.
