Change in every quarter

It’s not your strategy, it’s you

9 out of 10 businesses fail to deliver their strategy, not because the strategy is wrong, but because internally they are not aligned behind it.

Dare to change

Change is never easy. There will be tough decisions, tougher conversations and a fundamental impact on many of your people.

Actions speak louder than words

Change initiatives rarely fail in conception: they often fail in execution.

It’s in the name

Sometimes change has to happen quickly, this quarter; but it must always be sustained through the 4 quarters of the year and beyond, into ‘quarter 5’

Who are Q5?

 

We 'align' your structure, your processes and your people to deliver outstanding performance. Our role is making it happen. We continue to serve restless CEOs demanding that their people think the unthinkable and deliver something special in their business.

 

Our clients choose to work with us because they benefit from: 

- our deep and broad experience - across many industries and businesses 
- our willingness to share their challenges and resolve their issues
- our determination to get results and deliver value for them. 

We are not interested in short-term fixes. We create long term solutions - not just results for the next quarter or the one after that, but beyond, into 'quarter 5'. The clients we work with are not only better prepared to deal with the 'here and now' ... they know that they can sustain their improved performance into the future.
