The Dolphin Index

What we do

'Culture eats strategy for breakfast' (Peter Drucker)

We do 3 things to create more creative individuals and teams and innovative work places - and thereby successful organizations:

  1. Diagnosis, Findings and Report

    We take one or more ‘photographs’ of your team’s or organization’s climate for innovation. We analyse the photo and help you understand exactly where you need to focus your energies so as to improve your climate for innovation. We make specific and comprehensive recommendations so as to help shift the climate.

  2. The Development

    We help your people develop the mind-sets and behaviours that create a more innovative workplace.

  3. The Conversation

    We research and share best and new practice about creating creativity and innovation. We welcome your contribution to, and involvement in, this conversation.

Our goals

To help invidividuals and teams be more creative and to help organizations create more innovative and successful workplaces

To produce leading research on climates for innovation including a comprehensive data base of climates

What we believe: The Dolphin Hypothesis

2 complementary assumptions

Assumption 1 - Fullfilling Lives, Successful Organizations

People have huge potential and can live much more fulfilling work lives and can realise their potential in ways that create much more 'successful' organizations

Assumption 2 - Successful Organizations, Better World

Organizations can be more 'successful' in ways that make the world a better place
