Unleash your growth advantage

Accelerating growth in entrepreneurial tech firms through human-centric organisation design

Welcome to Work Extraordinary

For you, right now, it is all about growth. Getting more customers, more sign-ups, more users. And to do that, you need more people, fast.

Traditional business growth approaches tend to result in dull corporate environments, where work is a joyless, miserable exchange of time for money. Outdated structures, bureaucracy, and power plays strip many modern workplaces of a sense of purpose, connection, or belonging.

We believe there is another way: organisations can be designed to be agile and adaptive to the highly changeable market context AND where people can thrive and do their best work.

Our purpose is to stimulate business founders and leaders to see the art of the possible, to open up human-centric organisation design paths and models as alternatives to traditional forms of corporate growth. The very heart of our mission: to make work extraordinary.

"In my role as Chief Technology Officer, I worked with Barry in three main ways: managing operation of measurement product delivery to customers he was working with; consulting with him on customer needs and products; discussing new e-learning and measurement delivery platform that I was architecting. It was a great pleasure to work with Barry. With great patience, he took on critical design meetings with leadership qualities. He strived to build customer satisfaction work while considering internal delivery parameters. He gained a clear understanding of the products and how they could be improved."
