Business As Unusual
We’re facing accelerated change. What is emerging is the next paradigm shift: the 4th industrial revolution, built around:
next generation technologies
climate and sustainability
radical shifts in how we work
a focus on the people and societies we serve

Traditional strategy development is too slow in an ever faster changing business environment while traditional transformations fall short because they underestimate the importance of an adaptable business mindset.

Why paradigms? While paradigms are broadly defined as an example or model for what we think about a particular topic, it has taken on a more detailed definition as a result of Thomas Kuhn and his seminal work, The Structure of Scientific Revolutions. In its most distilled form, a Kuhnian paradigm is the way in […]
Traditional strategic planning Strategy is key to long term business success and so is, by extension, strategic planning. The problem is not in strategy or planning per se, but how it is done. Traditional strategic planning works, when businesses use it to set direction and plan to achieve a long term aim, where the validity […]
Every day there are articles, reports and podcasts talking about the disruptions and uncertainty in the world. Leaders already have a lot to deal with through the pandemic and headlong into the cost of living crisis, war and an increasingly likely recession. Drawing on decades of research, we’ve come to understand that the end of […]
Scenario planning for uncertainty "Uncertainty today is not just an occasional, temporary deviation from a reasonable predictability; it is a basic structural feature of the business environment." Pierre Wack, Scenarios: Uncharted Waters Ahead, Harvard Business Review, Sept 1985 What scenarios are good for Scenario planning has been championed as a strategic tool for senior management […]
Visual Capitalist published its review of expert predictions for 2022. While we could spend time arguing over whether each specific prediction is likely or not, what is clear is that disruption is here to stay. If even a small portion of the predictions on the bingo card come to pass, 2022 is likely to be […]
In November of last year, I had the opportunity to participate in a conversation sponsored by Io Associates on Making Change Stick. Since then, I have been reflecting on the processes that increase the chance that the change a business wants to implement actually succeeds. This article is an elaboration of my comments in the […]
At Atmosphere, we’ve been working at the forefront of digital transformation for over 10 years. So as we all regroup following what are hopefully the worst impacts of COVID19, we ask what is digital transformation?

We believe that more than ever its important for business to play a meaningful role for good in the societies in which they operate. Solely extracting value from our operations to benefit the few feels dated in a world where people are choosing to engage, work for and buy from organisations that have a purpose beyond profit. And in a world facing up to some pretty thorny challenges the resources that businesses have available - skills, capital and reach - adeptly leveraged, can have a big impact on people's lives.
Putting our money where our mouth is we created TRVST to empower collective action for social good. Whereas still very much on the build, we've big plans to connect resources into actionable social impact projects to accelerate social impact.
