Some of my time is also spent as Head of Analytics for Quartz Associates, a boutique firm that helps companies and institutions deliver more value and less misery in their reorganisations and growth.

Quartz Associates was founded in 2017 by the authors of the Harvard Business Review book “Reorg – How to Get it Right”. Using data-driven analyses to inform our strategy, we train companies and leaders to deliver reorgs better.

Quartz Associates offers the following:

  • Measurement – we have analysed a database of more than 2,000 reorgs across numerous industries, sizes, and regions that reveals what works and what doesn’t. We use this insight combined with additional analysis that is catered to each company’s unique situation to help companies set goals, perform actions that deliver value and staff engagement, and measure success.
  • Training – helping leaders and HR deliver the reorg by coaching on the difficult choices
  • Process – managing the process and people components of a reorg, which is just as important if not more than identifying its structure

While we work with clients across all sectors, we have a particular expertise in the energy industry. Enabling smooth reorgs that create value while reducing disruption and misery will be fundamental in the transition towards a net-zero-carbon economy as “old energy” companies become “new energy” companies and utilities undergo business model transformation.
