Managing Director at Adaptive Lab
Internet | London, United Kingdom, GB
I run a Product Development and Innovation company called Adaptive Lab. If you were to make a fruit smoothie of design thinking, lean startup methods and dropped in a condensed shot of explosive tech capability you’d be tasting something a little bit like us.
We're a beautifully formed family of service designers, product managers, designers, engineers and researchers. We partner with companies that want to dominate in their industry and are lucky enough to work with some very early stage but ambitious companies as well as some much better known companies like ASOS, Barclays, Barclaycard, Experian, Pearson, Three Mobile and YouGov. We say that we like to help large companies act like small ones again and small ones get big.
Projects we're working on currently include a digital transformation at a global credit card business, an innovation and behaviour change program at a FTSE 100 and an internal program to improve communication and collaboration at a well known telco.
At Adaptive Lab my role is to chart an exciting path for our great company, build and lead a crew of impressive and inspiring problem solvers and product builders and seek out ambitious entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs who want to shake things up. I also frequently do the coffee round and tinker with the product vision for our clients when allowed.
The CIO of one of our clients recently said: "I have worked with many of the leading design and consulting companies and Adaptive Lab is right up there. Their combination of user centric product development and lean thinking not only delivered valuable technical, design and strategic insights, it demonstrated the new way of thinking and working that is essential for any company that wants to keep pace in today’s fast-moving landscape."
