UK - Nationwide

Principal Consultant

Full-time - Consulting
We are Emergn. Our mission is to improve the way people and companies work. Forever.

Every day we work with some of the largest and best-known companies, helping them to change the way they work.  Mostly we help them introduce agile and lean principles to how they define and deliver new products and services.  Often we also help companies improve the overall business, operations and strategy to capitalise on changes in technology, customer expectations, social, digital and other trends impacting the way business is done and customers are served.
Primarily we find ourselves ‘fixing’ the way IT/Technology interacts with ‘The Business’ in order to react and respond to market demands.  This means we work with people.  Every day.  At all levels of organisations.  To help them change and improve, individually and collectively.
What we’ve learned over the years is that change is hard. And people don’t always understand why it is necessary, or what good might look like.  Or what is right for their organisation.  That’s why we have a focus on education and learning.  We help people learn in a way that works for them, at their pace, when they want to.  This means that we can build better shared understanding and help folks design their own solutions to their challenges.  People at Emergn are always helping people learn, and in turn deliver amazing outcomes.  Be that as a trainer, a coach, a consultant or any other role, we work with people to uncover better ways for them to deliver better outcomes to their customers.
To help this whole process we built an education product called VFQ (Value, Flow, Quality) to share the learning.  All our people learn these concepts, build upon them and share them with our clients so that the concepts work in context.  We are continually developing these ideas.  Working at Emergn means you will be part of the continued development.
