The Untypical Challenge


Challenging conventional project thinking.


Project professionals have been delivering projects for decades using a range of methodologies, protocols and strategies. Lean, Six Sigma, PRINCE2, ADKAR ... the list goes on and on.

And as we have said on numerous occasions and in various places here on untypical.com.au - we respect and support those approaches for many, many organisations. But what if you are an organisation that wants to transformaginate? Can we expect truly transformational outcomes relying on methodogies that have been in place for decades?

At Untypical, we want to challenge conventional project thinking - as Frankie Avalon sang in "Grease" (B. Gibb - 1978) - conventionality belongs to yesterday! 

And that is why we developed The Untypical Challenge.

Before you kick off a project, who is challenging the thinking? Who is challenging the proposed outcomes? Who is challenging the proposed strategy? When the project people have all come from the same organisation, are they going to be thinking about transformation or are they going to fall back on the thinking that has worked in the past.

Invite Untypical into your business. We'll challenge you. We'll ask the questions. We'll be critical (in the positive sense) about your planning and strategy. We'll sense check the outcomes and approach with the people who will be affected by the changes the project is proposing to introduce. 

One of two things will happen - we'll find opportunities to improve your approach or we won't. If we do, you can steer your project in that direction before you get started and if we don't ... you'll have confidence that your project is heading in the right direction.

If you would like to discuss The Untypical Challenge and it might help you with an upcoming project, please get in touch.
